has been relocated from Denmark’s Copenhagen to London's East End for its long-in-development English language remake. Remarkably as edgy, exciting and explosive as the 1996 cult classic, executive producer Winding-Refn chose writer Matthew Read (Hammer of the Gods
) to adapt his screenplay that once more focuses on a small-time drug dealer descending into debt hell following a spot of busted bad luck and a series of bad choices. The more desperate his behavior gets the more isolated he becomes as he tries to avoid the death threats of the gangster who supplied him with the gear and is expecting his money back in two days time. Starring Grabbers
lead Richard Coyle as Frank, supermodel-turned-actress Agyness Deyn playing his girlfriend Flo, rising Brit actor Bronson Webb as his best friend Tony and Zlatko Buric, reprising his role as crime boss Milo the Mediterranean from the original movie, Pusher
is directed by short film award-winner Luis Prieto who calls his take on the stylish material, “'Goodfellas' in the East End."
