Film to be directed by Alexander Soskin

British action star Craig Fairbrass (The Bank Job, Rise Of The Footsoldier) has appointed London-based sales outfit Moviehouse Entertainment to handle his new action thriller Gunned Down, which will begin shooting in the UK in September under the direction of LA-based award winning commercials director/editor Alexander Soskin.

Fairbrass has co-written and serves as producer alongside veteran Tim Dennison (Mutant Chronicles) and will star.

Gunned Down will be produced under Fairbrass’ new production banner Screen 360. It tells the violent tale of armed robber and career criminal Jack Coulson who seeks to discover the truth behind his father’s murder and his stolen heist money and in doing so puts his family and life in danger.

Set around London’s dark underworld, he battles to unravel the mystery and exact brutal revenge on those responsible while being pursued by gangland criminals and a corrupt police detective. The film co-stars Frank Harper (Lock Stock And Two Smoking Barrels), Steven Berkoff (44 Inch Chest) and Jason Flemyng (The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen).
