Vertigo Films have moved ahead with a wonderful cast on the new English language remake version of PUSHER.

Luis Prieto is currently shooting the remake of Nicolas Winding Refn’s (Bronson, Drive) classic 1996 film. The exciting tale of life on the streets follows character Frank, through his drug exploits and down into despair, when his life is no longer appealing, or profitable.


Pusher will star Richard Coyle (Prince of Persia), Mem Ferda (The Devil’s Double), Bronson Webb (Dead Man Running), and model Agyness Deyn.

Synopsis:
"As edgy and explosive as Nicolas Winding Refn’s 1996 cult classic, this English language remake tells the story of a week in the life of Frank, a big time drug pusher in London. Frank’s life is a fun-filled rollercoaster of a ride that soon spins out of control. Friendships start to vanish, there is no longer room for love within his life, and violence takes over. Danger and chaos are all around and he becomes a man trapped in his own world.

Eventually Frank is left with no one to turn to and nowhere to go, becoming a man paralysed with the fear of knowing there is no way of preventing his inevitable fate. Fast-paced, visually striking, witty and with some of acting’s finest talents, Pusher will have you gripped from beginning to end!”

Shooting will take place in London on this gritty crime thriller, with Gaumont International to bring Prieto’s vision to the big screen in 2011.
