RISE OF THE FOOTSOLDIER: ORIGINS, starring legendary leading man Vinnie Jones, is showing exclusively in cinemas from September 3, courtesy of Signature Entertainment. and has now revealed its trailer and its a wonderful one. We see ‘old friends’ , we see wonderful slick visuals, and the trailer is everything it should be to get fans ready for the next instalment of the Rise Of The Footsolder film franchise.
Lock, Stock and Snatch superstar Vinnie Jones teams up with premiere acting veteran Keith Allen (Kingsman, Shallow Grave) for British true crime thriller RISE OF THE FOOTSOLDIER: ORIGINS, a brutal account of how real-life, hard-as-nails Falklands War veteran Tony Tucker came to be involved in one of the most notorious gangland murders in British history.
As well as Jones, outstanding as fearsome doorman Bernard O’Mahoney, and Allen as formidable nightclub owner Dave Simms, the film features Craig Fairbrass (Muscle) – returning as drug-dealer Pat Tate -as of course does Terry Stone (as Tony Tucker in easily one of my favourite Terry Stone roles) P.H.Moriarty from The Long Good Friday, Billy Murray (Nemesis), Michelle Collins (Eastenders), George Russo (Top Dog), the brilliant Roland Manookian (RocknRolla), a genius cameos from reality TV royalty Chris Hughes and the late and great Heavy D.
Directed by Nick Nevern (director and star of The Hooligan Factory and star of popular BBC comedy series Motherland), who co-wrote the script with producer Andrew Loveday, this is a blisteringly good thriller, set against a superbly realised backdrop of the late 80s rave scene, with a pulsing soundtrack featuring the likes of New Order and Ultravox. A future Brit gangster classic that gives the likes of Layer Cake, The Gentlemen and Legend a run for their money.
Jam-packed with foul-mouthed and often hilarious dialogue, explosive moments of violence, and a gripping plot that tells it like it happened, RISE OF THE FOOTSOLDIER: ORIGINS continues the flash, the pizazz, and the hyper slick dialogue and violence that fans of previous installment lapped up and the newly released trailer will get those appetites prepped for the films release in cinemas next month. Whilst Ive been a fan of Actor Nick Nevern’s for near on a decade now. Im also a fan of Director Nick Nevern and this film looks like yet another successful notch in the directing belt of his.
