Jones’ sophomore film stars Martin Kemp (The Krays) as a sniper forced to murder six random people in six hours to save his kidnapped daughter, played by Dani Dyer (Vendetta). He later realises the murders are part of a political coup and attempts to unmask the kidnappers.
“We have assembled a fantastic cast to do justice to Simon’s script: a fast-paced page-turner, which feels much more like an American picture than your standard British film,” said Jones.
The Conversations, a comedy co-directed by Haider Zafar [pictured] and Marcus Flemmings, has wrapped production in London after shooting over the past year.
The quirky black comedy is set in contemporary London and follows as Muslim stand-up comedian (Zafar) who falls in love with an American blonde (Daniella Down). The cast also features Anna Brophy and Michael Keane.
Zafar and Flemmings make their feature directorial debuts. Zafar previously served as cinematographer on films including Top Dog and Vendetta; photographer and author Flemmings wrote the screenplay and also co-produces with Zafar. Jon Thompson of Picture Worx serves as executive producer. »

“Men and women of my age don’t work that much any more, and in Hollywood, we work even less,” he said. “So I’ve done other things – I’ve been writing books, plays, I teach, I direct – I’ve found alternative ways of making a living. Which was lucky, because the business dries up for you. If you rely on acting at my age, »
