After years in development, last year saw the resurfacing of the film adaptation of seminal British cop series "The Sweeney" by Vertigo Films, with "The Football Factory" helmer Nick Love directing. Well, the first teaser trailer for the movie has now been unveiled, and it's more or less what you'd expect from a buddy cop pic starring regular badass Ray Winstone and rapper Plan B, also known as Ben Drew.
Winstone is his typical self while playing Jack Regan, with Drew taking the passenger seat as Regan's sidekick George Carter. The film doesn't look to be much more than a balls-to-the-wall, entertaining actioner (we're not complaining). From the glimpses we get, Drew looks fairly decent for a musician-turned-actor, though he has been put under the microscope and come through with flying colors in the past, featuring prominently opposite Michael Caine in "Harry Brown."
