There’s one film I’m particularly looking forward to next year and that one is Twenty8K It’s a gritty conspiracy thriller from the hand of Paul Abbott (State of Play BBC , Exile BBC & Shameless) shot on location in Paris but mostly in London (Greenwich and Olympic Park area) in April – May 2011.
The plot : A teenage boy is gunned down outside a nightclub and a young girl dies in a hit and run in two seemingly unrelated deaths. Deeva Jani, returns home to clear her brother Vipon of the shooting and soon discovers a much deeper conspiracy.
Parminder Nagra (Alcatraz, E.R., Bend it like Beckham) plays the lead character of Deeva. Jonas Armstrong plays Clint O’Connor an ex-gang member, now social youth worker who helps Parminder’s character clearing her brother’s name. The rest of the cast looks just as amazing with Nichola Burley , Kaya Scodelario , Kierston Wareing and Stephen Dillane.
The Twenty8K team have been / still are a real joy to follow on twitter as they tweeted during the whole shoot, and now still do to keep us updated with the post-production process. So if you are on twitter I really recommend to follow the lovely producer @Nooclar (Martin Carr) , the amazing and funny sound recording artist @Nigelsoundspeed (Nigel Albermaniche) , @WarnerStephens , @Twenty8K who updates regularly with the official blog and the cast are also on twitter : @parmindernagra and @Nichola_Burley. The day Jonas will ever join twitter is when hell freezes over I think ;p
I’ll add a lot more info and interviews, promoshots etc in the next post but I leave you with the first behind the scenes clip
