Even though most of his spoken words are indiscernible, actor Ray Winstone has an undeniable presence on screen. He’ll get to show off again this year in a new UK buddy cop drama titled The Sweeney, based on the television series across the pond. He teams with Ben Drew aka rapper Plan B and we can also see a peek at Homeland star Damien Lewis and Captain America‘s Haley Atwell in the first trailer from Digital Spy.
It looks like your fairly generic British crime film, but even as misguided as something like London Boulevard was, Winstone is almost always entertaining. Director Nick Love also helmed the buzzed about sports drama The Football Factory and executive produced Nicolas Winding Refn‘s Bronson. With a script from John Hodge (Shallow Grave, The Beach), let’s hope this one lives up to already having a sequel in development. Check it out below.
The Sweeney arrives in the UK on September 21st and has yet to pick up US distribution.
