quietearth [Celluloid 09.14.09] United Kingdom movie news action dystopic



Revolver, the distributor of many fine films in the UK, has launched a new production arm called Gunslinger which is already in the middle of shooting their first feature entitled Shank by first time feature length director Mo Ali. Since the quality of the film coming out of the UK right now is pretty darn high, I'm looking forward to it. Oh, and also because it sounds post apocalyptic as food is the precious commodity.

In a London of the future, the gap between rich and poor has grown to epic proportions and food has replaced drugs and guns as a priceless commodity. Junior (Kedar Williams- Sterling) and his gang the Paper Chaserz trade in ‘munchies’ but stay away from the territory disputes and the violence. A tip off about a food delivery leads to a conflict with a rival gang and the death of one of their own. Now Junior has to decide whether to stay true to his principles or whether to drag them all into a quest for revenge that could get them killed.

Sounds intriguing. Funnily enough there's another UK film called "Shank" out this week - http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/2009/sep/11/shank-film-review
