A VIOLENT MAN is Ross McCall’s (White Collar, 24, Band of Brothers) directorial debut from his own script, and stars Craig Fairbrass (Villain, Muscle, The Rise of the Footsoldier franchise), Stephen Odubola (Blue Story), Jason Flemyng (Boiling Point, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels) and Zoe Tapper (Liar) – released in UK & Irish cinemas 4th February Vertigo Releasing.
The film sees Fairbrass teaming up again with the producers of Villain, who are also behind the fantastic film Boiling Point, starring Stephen Graham.
The film features an impressive supporting cast including Jason Flemyng and Stephen Odubola, who is outstanding as Fairbrass’ troubled cellmate Marcus. A VIOLENT MAN is a gritty portrayal of the harsh realities of prison life, with a brooding score by two time BAFTA award-winning composer Austin Wintory. It’s punctuated by moments of electrifying and ferocious violence, including a couple of truly savage cell face-offs that are shockingly effective and not for the faint of heart.
