The film stars Tom Knight (Kick Ass 2), Simon Phillip, Ewan Ross and Lorraine Stanley (London To Brighton). A UK release is scheduled for Christmas 2013.

Set on Christmas Eve, the film sees a group of ruthless masked terrorists kidnap the Prime Ministers daughter, fortifying themselves in an underground car park rigged with explosives. Crack SAS operative Chris Lowe (Knight) and his team are sent in and must take the building one level at a time.

Paul Tanter said: “I am very pleased to be bringing this gritty action thriller to the market. After his bad guy role in the highly anticipated Kick Ass 2, I can see Tom Knight shaping up as a star of the future and is the perfect lead as the heroic SAS Captain.

“Jude Poyer’s fight choreography background in Hong Kong martial arts film has brought awesome fight scenes to a very hard hitting British film.”

  • As director of a film about the SAS, Paul Tanter is surely shooting himself in both feet by saying that by playing a bad guy in KickAss 2, an actor is " the perfect lead as the heroic SAS Captain".
