Trinity is delighted to announce it has acquired Hackney’s Finest, which premiered at the East End Film Festival in June, to be released early 2015.
Remember when, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels was the talk of town? Or The Long Good Friday? London’s East End has changed quite a bit since then.
Hackney’s Finest is a sardonic look at life behind the façade of the up-and-coming neighbourhood, where a group of small-time Afghan heroin dealers and hapless minicab operator Sirus (Nathanael Wiseman) are forced to take on corrupt detective inspector Priestly (Arin Alldridge) and his Russian ‘associates’, while having to face two customers they wouldn’t like to cross; gun-toting Welsh-Jamaican yardies Tony and B (Marlon G. Day and Enoch Frost).
Hackney’s Finest is director Chris Bouchard’s and actor/producer Arin Alldridge's debut feature. Bouchard previously directed The Hunt For Gollum, a 40-minute Tolkien based Middle-earth adaptation, which has had 15 million views on YouTube.
Cedric Behrel, co-founder/director of Trinity, says: “After A Liar’s Autobiography and The Comedian, Hackney’s Finest is another step in our enduring commitment to bring new British films and new British talent to it a UK audiences. We are delighted to be working with such a promising, smart film-making duo as Chris and Arin.”
Chris Bouchard adds: 'I'm ecstatic that Trinity Film have chosen to release Hackney's Finest, and that people across the UK will be able to watch and enjoy the eclectic characters in the film as much as I have, in making it.'
