Production begins on VENDETTA
Principal photography has begun in London on Richwater Films’ Vendetta starring Danny Dyer.
Produced by Jonathan Sothcott (White Collar Hooligan, Fall Of The Essex Boys) and written and directed byStephen Reynolds (The Fall Of The Essex Boys) Vendetta is a hard-hitting vigilante action thriller set in a world where the only response to incomprehensible violence is an ‘eye for an eye’.
Dyer features as a former SAS soldier and interrogation officer Jimmy Vickers, who uses his combat skills to track down a feral gang who have brutally murdered his parents in a terrifying home invasion. With police closing in and his old unit on his trail, he has to evade capture long enough to complete his gruesome crusade.
Vendetta marks a return to form for Dyer, who is best known for his starring roles in movies such as The Football Factory, The Business and Outlaw.
Producer Jonathan Sothcott explained “audiences love Danny, he’s kind of like a 21st Century Michael Caine for my generation, but they love seeing him in a certain type of film and that’s something gritty, urban and violent. We felt it was about time for a really tough vigilante movie in the style of ‘Death Wish’ and ‘Harry Brown’ and Danny was the only choice. London can be a horrible place these days, with gangs of lads running riot, and lives are affected on a daily basis. I think anyone who has been wronged and not seen traditional justice has thought about taking the law into their own hands, even if it was just for a second. Imagine if a crack SAS soldier with all the associated skills that go with that decided to take revenge. It’s a terrifying prospect but it will make a great movie.”
Vendetta also stars Vincent Regan (Clash of the Titans), Bruce Payne (Passenger 57), Roxanne Mckee (Game of Thrones), Josef Altin (Game of Thrones), Nick Nevern (The Sweeney), Emma Samms and Tamaryn Payne.
