Entertainment One will release a combo pack edition of director Nick Love's The Sweeney (2012), starring Ray Winstone Hayley Atwell, and Damian Lewis. The release will be available for purchase online and in stores across the nation on April 2.
Nick Love directs this big-screen modern-day revamp of the classic British 1970s television series. Ray Winstone and pop star Plan B (aka Ben Drew) star as Regan and Carter, the iconic cop duo played by John Thaw and Dennis Waterman in the original version. Car chases and shoot-outs abound as the two Metropolitan police detectives tackle the low-lifes of London.
Note: The Complete First Series of the classic TV show is available on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors NetworkDVD. See our listing here.
Saw the trailer, and it looks like your general thriller. The cast behind it is what has me REALLY wanting to see it, though. Ray Winstone, Damian Lewis, Hayley Atwell, and even Ben Drew, who I liked in Harry Brown; another British thriller. I'll definitely check this out!
