With over 43 aliases, 86 phone lines, 25 companies and over 1 million books sold, Howard Marks (aka "Mr. Nice") is one of, if not thee most, infamous British drug barons in crime history. As much of a cultural icon as a gangster, Howard Marks literally did it all. He promoted music, dabbled in nuclear physics, was a spy for the CIA and the MI6 at the same time and wrote books to boot. To quote The Daily Mail; "He sounds like Richard Burton, and looks like a Rolling Stone." Basically, he was the man.

Come 2010, the outrageous and surreal true story of Howard Marks will be told by director Bernard Rose in Mr. Nice. Starring a stellar cast including Rhys Ifans, Chloë Sevigny and, one of my personal favorites, David Thewlis, I expect that Mr. Nice will be like a British Blow.

After the break we've got the very first stills from the film featuring all the main cast in full swinging seventies garb. You Dig?
