Signature Entertainment has released a first look clip from Rise of the Footsoldier: Origins, the latest instalment in the British crime thriller series, which features Vinnie Jones as fearsome doorman and hardman Bernard O’Mahoney; check it out here…
When a down-on-his-luck Tony Tucker lands a job as a nightclub doorman after saving the owner’s grandson, he will do whatever it takes to rise to the top of the game. Teaming up with Essex heavyweight Bernard O’Mahoney at the height of the 1980s rave scene, Tucker could do no wrong.
A voracious appetite for money, drugs, and a glamorous lifestyle soon develops, fueling his growingly audacious ventures and seeing him join forces with Pat Tate and Craig Rolfe to capitalise on the drug-boom. Packed with fights, revenges, and explosions, the ultimate origin story brings Rise of the Footsoldier full circle, and tackles many of the franchise’s previously unanswered questions.
Rise of the Footsoldier: Origins is directed by Nick Nevern (The Hooligan Factory) and features a cast that includes Craig Fairbrass, Vinnie Jones, Keith Allen, P.H. Moriarty, Billy Murray, Michelle Collins, George Russo, Roland Manookian, Chris Hughes and Heavy D. It is set for release in UK cinemas on September 3rd.
