Bored of the Range Rover killings? Fed up with the Essex Boys? Fear not. Runaway Features and Press On Features may have announced the release date of their latest feature Essex Boys Retribution, but it’s not another reincarnation. This time round, the crime thriller penned and directed by Paul Tanter, with Simon Phillips producing, follows on from The Fall of the Essex Boys, with a fictionalised account of events 18 years on after the famed Range Rover killings.
Phillips said "After the success of The Fall of the Essex boys, which has sold 90,000 units to date, we've continued the story and I am pleased that Paul has delivered an even more exciting, darkly funny and sharper film. I'm very excited that Metrodome have scheduled a Christmas release. The interest in this story means Essex Boys Retribution is THE crime drama to be getting this December."
The cast includes: Ian Virgo (Rise of the Footsoldier), Alex Ismail (Attack the Block), Ryan Winsley (The Fall of the Essex Boys), and Kyle Summercorn (Turnout) with Lorraine Stanley (London to Brighton), Vas Blackwood (Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels) and Billy Murray (The Rise and Fall of a White Collar Hooligan) all supporting. The feature will be released on Monday 23 December. You can watch the trailer below. DW
