Martin and Gary Kemp reunite as villainous brothers for the first time since The Krays in Assassin, which stars Danny Dyer.
Martin and Gary Kemp, best known as musicians in Spandau Ballet and gangsters in biopic The Krays, are to play the Alberts brothers in new film Assassin. It marks their first big screen appearance together since cult classic The Krays in 1990. They will star opposite Football Factory actor Danny Dyer.
Producer Jonathan Sothcott said: “The Krays is one of the best-loved British films of all time, an untouchable classic that only a lunatic would remake, but at the core of that movie are the fantastic performances of Martin and Gary.
“Reuniting them for Assassin is a real coup, a dream come true, and I know their army of fans are going to love seeing what unpleasant plans they have for Mr Dyer.”
Assassin is a Richwater/Silver Leaf co-production produced by Jonathan Sothcott and written, produced and directed by JK Amalou. Filming begins on Sept 9 on location in London.
Anchor Bay Entertainment has acquired UK and Australian rights and will release the movie in 2014.
