The new Rise Of The Footsoldier film will be heading to cinemas in September, it’s been announced: see a clip here.
The Rise Of The Footsoldier series of movies has been, on the relative quiet, quite a sizeable British film industry success story. Now, the latest in the series is incoming, and it’s going to be heading to cinemas.
Rise Of The Footsoldier: Origins sees Vinnie Jones take on a lead role, alongside Keith Allen and Craig Fairbrass. Others in the ensemble for this one are Billy Murray, Michelle Collins, P H Moriarty, Heavy D, Roland Manookian and George Russo.
Nick Nevern directs the new movie, having co-written the screenplay with Andrew Loveday. And in line with the announcement of the film’s exclusive cinema release in the UK on September 3rd, Signature Entertainment has debuted a clip from the upcoming movie too. A clip that looks like this, as it happens…
A synopsis has also been released, and it reads as follows…
When a down-on-his-luck Tony Tucker lands a job as a nightclub doorman after saving the owner’s grandson, he will do whatever it takes to rise to the top of the game. Teaming up with Essex heavyweight Bernard O’Mahoney at the height of the 1980s rave scene, Tucker could do no wrong.
A voracious appetite for money, drugs, and a glamorous lifestyle soon develops, fueling his growingly audacious ventures and seeing him join forces with Pat Tate and Craig Rolfe to capitalise on the drug-boom. Packed with fights, revenges, and explosions, the ultimate origin story brings Rise of the Footsoldier full circle, and tackles many of the franchise’s previously unanswered questions.
Expect the widest release yet for a Rise Of The Footsoldier film. More as we hear it.
