The bell has officially rung as of Wednesday for Sky Original series, Gangs Of London. The series marks the latest foray for filmmaker Gareth Evans (Apostle) since his cult ascension among the action fandom proliferating then-burgeoning star Iko Uwais ten years ago.
Evans is rejoined by noted cinematographer Matt Flannery, both who created the nine-part action drama which centers on a young crime org heir who sets out to restore order among the gangs while hunting his father’s mysterious killer. Joe Cole stars along with Sope Dirisu, Colm Meaney, Lucian Msamati and Michelle Fairley.
Gangs Of London was also directed by Evans next to Xavier Gens and Corin Hardy, and was produced by Pulse Films in association with Sister. A release date remains pending while Sky is rolling out an official trailer for the action-packed series that shows in lucid, brutal fashion that Evans hasn’t lost his knack for delivering the goods.
