Principal photography has started on UK action-thriller Age Of Kill, from director Neil Jones and writer Simon Cluett.

Jones’ sophomore film stars Martin Kemp (The Krays) as a sniper forced to murder six random people in six hours to save his kidnapped daughter, played by Dani Dyer (Vendetta). He later realises the murders are part of a political coup and attempts to unmask the kidnappers.

The cast also features Phil Davis, April Pearson, Anouska Mond, Nick Moran, Tony Denham, Donna Air and Patrick Bergin.

“We have assembled a fantastic cast to do justice to Simon’s script: a fast-paced page-turner, which feels much more like an American picture than your standard British film,” said Jones.

The film is being produced by indie Richwater Films along with Anchor Bay UK. Jones will produce the film, alongside Luke Fairbrass and Richwater’s Jonathan Sothcott.

“Simon Cluett’s fast-paced, edgy script never lets up and Neil Jones’ vision for the film is terrific,” said Sothcott. “The Richwater/Anchor Bay partnership is a very happy one and we hope to announce out next joint venture very soon”.

The film will shoot in London and Alicante for four weeks and is aiming for a UK release in 2015. Highland Film Group will handle international sales.
