The Cast of Crime Thriller The Heavy


The Hollywood Reporter says Gary Stretch, Shannyn Sossamon, Vinnie Jones, Stephen Rea, Christopher Lee, George Harris, Geoff Bell and Jean Marsh will star in Parkland Pictures crime thriller The Heavy.

Writer/director Marcus Warren’s British feature centers on a henchman (Stretch), who is forced to forgive a debt to his shady businessman boss (Rea) by assassinating his own brother, a high profile politician. The plan begins to unravel when he gets involved with a student (Sossamon) whose flat he plans to use for the crime, and a corrupt detective (Jones) gets on his trail.

Principal photography began on the film this month in the U.K.
