Revolver Entertainment have sent us over the trailer for iLL MANORS, the directorial debut by British music artist Ben Drew (aka Plan B). iLL MANORS stars Riz Ahmed (Four Lions), Ed Skrein and Natalie Press (My Summer of Love) and hits the silver screen on 6th June.
A unique crime thriller set on the unforgiving streets of London, iLL MANORS follows six disparate lives, all struggling to survive the circles of violence that engulf them.
There is ex-dealer Kirby, who has just been released from prison, thug Ed who will stop at nothing to find his missing phone, troubled Michelle who is just looking for her next hit, young Jake who finds himself drawn to the local gang, Chris, who seeks revenge, Katya, who is desperately trying to escape this foreign land, and Aaron, our main protagonist who is just trying to do the right thing.
Narratively linked through original music from Plan B, the film is a visually stunning and emotionally impactful experience, laced with street-wise humour. Ground-breaking in its approach, iLL MANORS proves to be one of the must-see films of 2012.
I’m a little sceptical when it comes to Musicians, sport stars come film actors especially after Battleshit with Rihanna who simply should have stayed under her umbrella ella ella. However we do get the odd actor who is passable front of the screen (with the one or two who pass expectations) Ben Drew is very passable as an actor maybe its the films he’s been in gritty British thrillers/urban dramas, So film studios must have seen something in his acting abilities to let him direct his first flick.
iLL Manors will arrive in UK&Ireland next month June 6th
