First Images From The English Language Remake Of Nicolas Winding Refn’s ‘Pusher’ – Featuring Richard Coyle & Agyness Deyn
Vertigo Films and Embargo Films have released these debut images from the highly anticipated English language remake of Nicolas Winding Refn’s (Bronson, Drive) 1996 Danish crime flick ’Pusher.’ Directed by Luis Prieto, the cast includes the likes of Richard Coyle (W.E./ Prince of Persia), super model and actress Agyness Deyn, Bronson Webb (The Tudors/Robin Hood) and Paul Kaye (It’s All Gone Pete Tong/Match Point).
This English language version of ‘Pusher’ tells the story of a week in the life of Frank (Coyle), 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. Look out for ‘Pusher’ in cinemas sometime in 2012. Check out the new synopsis below. Source: Collider.
