Here’s the official trailer for Nick Love’s, (The Football Factory, The Firm), anticipated film adaptation of the much loved British 70s crime series The Sweeney.
It stars John Actor as the hard, unrelenting, rough-around-the-edges police Inspector Monkfish who will break every rule and bend every law just to get his man…who are we kidding?
Starring Ray ‘fackin’ Winstone, Ben Drew, (the singer Plan B), Damian Lewis and Steven Mackintosh, who for some reason has now been typecast as a boss or policeman suffering from near nervous breakdownesque pressure, see Luther and Inside Men for evidence.
Just like the original series the movie version of The Sweeney deals with the crime fighting duo of Jack Regan and George Carter and involves them shouting, driving fast, firing guns and ordering someone to put on their trousers. Monkfish would be proud.
