As pseudo gangster films go ‘Dead Man Running’ could just be the perfect storm.
Staring self confessed ‘Gangster rapper’ 50 Cent and self confessed ‘tasty geezer’ Danny Dyer; the film will see the worlds of ‘Lock Stock…’ style East End hard men and gun toting rappers collide on the big screen for the first time since Guy Ritchie placed Ludacris in his disastrous 2008 crime film, ‘RocknRolla’. The synopsis sees Danny Dyer and Tammer Hassan get in to a spot of Barney Rubble * after taking a loan from the shadowy underwourld figure, Figo (50 Cent).Predictably, the pair then have 24 Hours to pay back the 100 bags of sand * before everything goes right on top.
Scenes with plenty of guns, cars, women, sharp suites and fights ensue. If all that wasn’t enough to get the readership of ‘Nuts’ magazine salivating the movie is also produced by Premiership football stars Rio Ferdinand and Ashley Cole.
It will either be the best or the worse film ever made.
‘Dead Man Running’ is released 30th October in the UK
* For those who don’t speak fluent Cockney “Barney Rubble” = “trouble” and “Bag of sand” = grand . You just can’t help yourself when you’re watching Danny Dyer!
