King of Crime film
Claire King and Mark Wingett star in King of Crime. The film also features our client Jack Loy as Mo and introduces clients Hannah Woodhead and Sophie Bradley.
When Marcus King (Mark Wingett), Britain’s most notorious cybercriminal, finds himself at the mercy of some extremists, he knows it’s time to settle some old scores, play one of the biggest scams of his life, and defeat the terrorists. It’s just a question of whether he can manoeuvre his footsoldiers, protect his wife (Claire King), and decipher some double-crossing before he’s safe in the land of milk and honey.
Director Matt Gambell praised Linda Dunscombe’s script as “modern crime-thriller, with a love and awareness of the genre” and both helped bring the contemporary story to life with an exceptional cast that includes Mark Wingett (Quadrophenia, The Bill), Claire King (Emmerdale, Bad Girls), Vas Blackwood (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Mean Machine), Jonno Davies (Park Theatre’s A Clockwork Orange, Kingsman: The Secret Service), Rachel Bright (Eastenders), Christopher Ellison (The Sweeney, The Bill), Hainsley Lloyd Bennett (Eastenders) and Nicholas Brendon (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Coherence).
Cybercrime and terrorism are some of the most prevalent issues of today, and King Of Crime’s bold look mirrors that modernism. The film sharply spotlights the topics at hand, and draws you into a world of deception and violence – a fresh voice within a recognisable genre. It does this, in part, with the familiar English aesthetic and that of a sleek style, for a cross-country affair of dangerous, dramatic thrills.
Produced by Linda Dunscombe and James Welling, the new British thriller King of Crime will be screening in select UK cinemas from Friday 2nd November.
