“The Last Scout” Has been written by ‘White Collar Hooligan’ Paul Tanter and has Simon Phillips taking on the directors duties. This latest film see both Tanter and Phillips breaking away from the british crime scene that they are best known for and into the Sci-Fi genre.
The film is a futuristic story of a crew of astronauts searching for a new home for humanity after Earth has been devastated by a nuclear war between the East and the West.
Both writer and director describe themselves as sci-fi geeks and state that the film will be combining the best elements of “Sunshine” and “Battlestar Gallactica.
Due for release in May 2014, this will be one to look out for.
We caught up with Writer/Director Paul Tanter and spoke about his new film White Collar Hooligan 2: England Away.
Why did you decide to make a follow up to The Rise and Fall of The White Collar Hooligan?
I liked the idea of revisiting the characters down the line. Eighteen months later and Mike and Katie are living new lives in Spain under the witness protection program, Eddie is off working different scams in various places and Topbeef is now a D.I. There were still some questions to be answered at the end of the first film and it was great to get everyone back together. After the success of the first one, there was a demand for a second from the distributor, who got behind it straight away.
Today sees the release to the follow up of Paul Tanter’s The Rise and Fall of the White Collar Hooligan and picks up in life after the job.
Mike Jacob’s (Nick Nevern) has escaped to the Costa Del Sol and started his life again, but after a frankly convenient and chance encounter with two people from his old life that recognise him his life is turned upside down when his girlfriend is kidnapped and held hostage by the man he stole from. Desperate to save her he hunts down old associates that can help.
Star of The Rise and Fall of the White Collar Hooligan and it’s sequel White Collar Hooligan” England AWay, Nick Nevern chats about the films in this video.
White Collar Hooligan 2: England Away is out on Monday 20 May.
The new Paul Tanter movie, He Who Dares, has wrapped shooting and here is the first poster.
The SAS Hostage thriller has been billed as a cross between The Raid and Die Hard and is directed by Paul Tanter (The Rise & Fall of a White Collar Hooligan) The script comes from GBH writer James Crow while Patrick and Anthony Maxwell produce alongside Tanter.
Due out at Christmas 2013 the poster is pretty cool, with the gray gritty appearance, it sets a nice tone for the forthcoming film.
Paul Tanter said “I am very pleased to be bringing this gritty action thriller to the market. After his bad guy role in the highly anticipated Kick Ass 2, I can see Tom Knight shaping up as a star of the future and is the perfect lead as the heroic SAS Captain. Jude Poyer’s fight choreography background in Hong Kong martial arts film has brought awesome fight scenes to a very hard hitting British film.”
The follow up to White Collar Hooligan has been announced with White Collar Hooligan 2: England Away.
Writer and Director Paul Tanter has put together the sequel to the story of Mike a football hooligan who turns on his crew and the pretty slick looking trailer is below.
The trailer gives us a glimpse into the not unfamiliar world of British football hooligan films, but this one looks like it’s a step up from other films in this vein.
The film is released on May 20th of this year, will it be going on your watch list?
