Craig Fairbrass returns in Rise of the Footsoldier 3 – New Poster and Trailer
An all-out bare-knuckle prequel to the iconic Brit crime thriller Rise Of The Footsoldier. Starring the original loveable-rogues Craig Fairbrass and Terry Stone and a British dream-team ensemble, in a brutal and bloody real-life story of Essex, drugs and rock and roll.
On the 10th anniversary of the release of the smash hit gangster classic Rise Of The Footsoldier comes this no-holds-barred prequel, telling the tale of real-life Essex Boy Pat Tate, a man mountain with a hair-trigger temper, a serious fondness for pills and cocaine, and an unquenchable hunger for power. The Scarface of Southend is a role Craig Fairbrass was born to play, and he grips the role between his teeth and does not let go. It’s a towering performance that cements Fairbrass’s reputation as a screen hard man of the top rank.
The rest of the cast is a veritable who’s who of the creme de la creme of Brit gangster film talent, with the likes of Terry Stone (Bonded By Blood), Eddie Webber (The Firm), Larry Lamb (The Hatton Garden Job), Jamie Foreman (Layer Cake), Josh Myers (Bonded By Blood 2), Roland Mannokian (The Business) and Billy Murray (Essex Boys) shoving their lovely mugs onto the screen. There are also appearances from Big Brother sensation and bare-knuckle fighter Paddy Doherty in his acting debut, and legendary Happy Mondays frontman Shaun Ryder as a nasty piece of work called Mad Dog.
Directed by Zackary Adler Rise of the Footsoldier 3: The Pat Tate Story is in UK cinemas 3rd November.
