Mumbai: Philip Glenister & John Simm starrer Tuesday, a racy crime thriller set in 1980s London, written and directed by Sacha Bennett will open in UK cinemas from 10 October.
Tuesday sees the duo take on the characters of ruthless criminals.
Tuesday is a ‘heist gone right’ story, revealed by the suspects through a series of interrogations. The big question is who got away with it? As the investigating detectives (Kevin McNally and Dylan Brown) try to piece together the jigsaw, they start to realize that nothing is, as it seems…
Glenister, who stars as Earp – the head ‘villain’ – says the role is a world away from his TV character DCI Gene Hunt. "John and I are the bad boys," said Glenister. "We rob a bank. We rob a few banks actually."
Bennett added, "Seeing Phil and John as hardened criminals working on the other side of the law will no doubt take devoted Life on Mars fans by surprise. Joining them as the other two jewel thieves in their crew are Ashley Walters and Cristian Solimeno, and the dynamic between all four actors is terrific to watch. We’ve a great ensemble cast with Kate Magowan and Dylan Brown, along with McNally, Kirsty Mitchell, and Linal Haft."
The film is a Japan Films production, produced by Bennett and Jonathan Parsons. The executive producers are Berry Van Zweiten, Paul Fournel, and Nigel Bliss. It was shot on location in Woolwich.
