Simon Rumley to helm gangster thriller ‘Once Upon a Time in London’

Simon Rumley (director of Red, White & Blue, Fashionista & Crowhurst) has begun a six week shoot on the brutal gangster thriller Once Upon a Time in London – for Gateway Films – which dramatises the violent reign of two of London’s most notorious gangsters, Billy Hill (Leo Gregory) and Jack ‘Spot’ Comer (Terry Stone), charting the legendary rise and fall of a nationwide criminal empire that lasted until the mid-fifties and which paved the way for the notorious Kray Twins and The Richardsons.

Director and co-writer Simon Rumley commented:

Having spent the last decade or so writing and directing thematically disparate but collectively extreme dramas, it makes absolute sense for me to progress to the gangster genre where love, lust, greed, paranoia, betrayal and violence are every day occurrences. The story of Jack Spot Comer, Billy Hill and their respective battles to become King of London’s Underworld has remained one of Britain’s most dynamic,

Washed up on an unknown shore after being caught in a storm, a band of Vikings manage to find a hostage and cross into enemy lines with thoughts of gold and safe passage. However, they soon find themselves hunted for their prize and a panicked race begins. The losers will pay with their lives.

Northmen is about a group of Vikings, some who have a Viking-y accent, others (like the main man, Asbjorn) who are surprisingly English. Trapped in Scotland (the horror!), they find themselves a Princess they take hostage (she has a Scottish accent, which is handy). Thus begins an epic journey across Scotland (the horror!) to

The Musketeers series 2 episode 6 review: Through A Glass, Darkly

  • Den of Geek
The Musketeers takes a rare dip in what has been a very strong series with this week's episode, Through A Glass Darkly...

This review contains spoilers.

2.6 Through A Glass, Darkly.

The Musketeers enters its home stretch with Through A Glass Darkly. If I had to compare it to any previous episode, it bears the most resemblance to The Good Traitor in that both are filled with multiple side plots and overarching story development whilst centring on a single antagonist. However, whereas The Good Traitor included equally substantial side plots, Through A Glass Darkly focuses too much on what unfortunately is a weak and at times nonsensical bad guy. That’s not to say that this week's instalment doesn’t have its moments – it certainly does, but not enough when compared to the rest of this series' offerings.

This week’s plot sees the Musketeers escort the King and his entourage

ITV's Foyle's War to end after current series

ITV has announced that Foyle's War will end after its current series.

The long-running period drama starring Michael Kitchen will air its final episode on Sunday (January 18) at 8pm.

The final episode 'Elise' will see Christopher Foyle (Kitchen) solving his final ever case in the two-hour special. It will feature Foyle looking into Hilda Pierce's (Ellie Haddington) secret role during the war, following an assassination attempt on her life.

Writer and creator Anthony Horowitz said: "It feels a terrible wrench to say goodbye to characters I've lived with for more than 15 years. But the truth is that I'm not sure there are any more stories to tell and anyway it was always my intention to end on a high note and I think this year's episodes are the very best we've done.

"I'm proud of what we've achieved with Foyle's War and I'm very grateful to the audience that has

The Ninth Cloud to screen at La Femme International Film Festival

Following its European Premiere at the Raindance Film Festival, La Femme International Film Festival in Los Angeles will be screening Jane Spencer’s dark, philosophical drama The Ninth Cloud on Saturday October 18th, 7pm at the Regal Theatre.

Set in 90s London, The Ninth Cloud tells the story of Zena (Megan Maczko), who, trying to escape the grief of her family being killed in a plane crash, becomes infatuated with fellow American Bob (Michael Madsen), an enigmatic but failed poet and writer, who has taken up residency in a Hackney squat. Searching for hope through Bob’s artistic visions, whilst clinging on to her fragile grasp of reality, Zena collides and colludes with an array of desperados, angst-ridden It girls and debauched failed artists. Two men in particular zero in on her: Brett, a narcissistic socialite (Leo Gregory), and Jonny, a drink-drowning musician searching for a way to re-surface (Jean Hughes Anglade

Raindance Film Festival Interview: Jane Spencer talks about The Ninth Cloud

Kat Kourbeti chats with writer-director Jane Spencer about The Ninth Cloud

This year’s Raindance Film Festival has marked the return of fantastic independent cinema, with projects spanning all categories from documentaries and shorts to feature films from all over the world. We got to chat with writer-director of The Ninth Cloud, Jane Spencer, about her latest film, a project that’s been in the works for half a dozen years.

Kat Kourbeti: First of all, great job on the film, I watched it yesterday and I have to say, it’s made an impression.

Jane Spencer: Thank you very much.

Kk: My first question has to be about the script, which you co-wrote with Lucy Shatterworth. The dialogue makes such an impact with the way it goes from highly poetic to painfully mundane. It’s the heightened difference between Zena and Brett, really, which I’m getting at.
