Christopher Webster [Celluloid 02.08.12] United Kingdom action



Nicholas Winding Refn is hot, hot hot since wowing the world with his American pop revisionist masterpiece, Drive. So hot, you may not remember that he started out with a little indie crime flick called Pusher back in 1996.

Well Pusher is being re-made in the UK with Refn and the producer of Monsters at the helm and the first poster and stills of the main cast including an image of Devil's Double actor, Mem Ferda as "Hakan" has come our way.


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.




Pusher stars Richard Coyle, Agyness Deyn, Mem Ferda, Bronson Webb and Paul Kaye.

The original Pusher trilogy is available from Magnet Releasing.
