First Look: Richard Coyle and Agyness Deyn in the Remake of 'Pusher'
It was the original series of films that started with Pusher that launched Nicolas Winding Refn's career back in 1996, and since then the filmmaker has gone on to most recently craft the spectacular thriller Drive starring Ryan Gosling. Now Refn has handed the reigns of his franchise over to Luis Prieto to direct an English-language remake (which Refn is also executive producing) which is set in London and straight from the American Film Market (via Collider) we have a couple very red photos with our first look at Agyness Deyn (Clash of the Titans) and Richard Coyle (Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time) from the film.
Here are the first photos from Luis Prieto's remake of Pusher via Collider (click for larger versions):
Luis Prieto is directing English language remake of Pusher, the 1996 crime thriller originally directed by Nicolas Winding Refn who is also executive producing the remake. This time the story sees a small time London drug dealer descend into debt following a spot of bad luck and a series of bad choices. The more desperate his behavior gets, the more isolated he becomes until there is nothing left standing between him and the nine millimeter bullet his debtors intend to put through his skull. Richard Coyle ("Coupling") leads the cast with Agyness Deyn (Clash of the Titans), Bronson Webb (Kingdom of Heaven) and Paul Kaye (Match Point) rounding out the cast. No official release date is available yet, so stay tuned.
