Riot On Redchurch Street
After our meeting today at Redchurch Street Productions. We are delighted to announce that we are now doing the titles for their new British independent film ‘Riot on Redchurch Street’.
Written and Directed by Trevor Miller. The film tells the story of a love triangle between an East London rock-n-roll manager and two of his clients – a girl singer on the verge of mainstream success and the young front-man from a local punk-band, who’s starting to crash and burn. As the star-crossed lovers tear each other apart, a showcase gig in Shoreditch turns bad, igniting anglo-muslim racial tension – now there’s a riot on Redchurch Street than can only end in blood, fire and redemption.
The film has been produced by music manager and promoter maverick Sean McLusky, along with seasoned veteran Hamish McAlpine, who was featured last week in The Hollywood Reporter in Cannes. It stars former singer of ‘Mover’, Sam Hazeldine who starred opposite John Cusack in ‘The Raven’ and French actress Alysson Paradis, younger sister of Vanessa Paradis. Distinct British movie and TV actor Jesse Birdsall also stars in the film, as does Rhys James.
Trevor says “I had returned to London, from Los Angeles, after 17 years and wanted to make a film that would translate to both UK and US audiences. The vibrancy and danger of the East London music scene seemed the perfect subject matter – being both singularly British, yet uniquely exportable. I had been reading Christopher Isherwood’s “Goodbye To Berlin” and found striking parallels between my own experience and the bohemian subculture in which I became immersed. When I witnessed a large street-fight outside the Redchurch Street mosque I realized that this was a story needing to be told. A story about powerful emotion, moral ambiguity – but ultimately hope.”
