Harry Brown – Trailer for Michael Caine’s tough new film

Get Carter immediately comes to mind as Caine is once again on the road for revenge, daring the foolhardy to stand in his way at their peril.

Caine is older now, more used to picking up accolades for playing mild-mannered butlers (a la Dark Knight) than gun-toting, head-banging Carter.

But it seems there is still plenty of testosterone in the tank as he now adopts the guise of a retired Marine in this film that started shooting in late January in London.

As Harry Brown he adopts the guise of a retired Marine widower. Get it? Retired, yes, and single to boot, but sitting on a wealth of combat skills.

Caine/Brown begins happily enough, although living a somewhat lonely existence, with only his best friend David Bradley (Harry Potter, Hot Fuzz) for company in a modern day Britain where drugs are the currency of the day and guns run the streets.

The bad news for the country’s lowlifes is that they stupidly murder Caine’s mate Bradley, compelling him to settle the score.

Billed as an urban western, the film is the feature debut for director Daniel Barber, who shot to fame when his 2008 short The Tonto Woman was nominated for an Oscar.

Caine is joined front and centre by pros Emily Mortimer and Iain Glen as well as relative newcomers Charlie Creed-Miles (The Fifth Element), and Liam Cunningham (Hunger, The Wind That Shakes the Barley).

The nasties are drawn from a group of up-and-coming British talent including Ben Drew aka Plan B (Adulthood), Jack O’Connell (Eden Lake), Lee Oakes (Two Pints of Lager and a Packet Of Crisps), Joseph Gilgun (This Is England) and Sean Harris (24 Hour Party People).

Harry Brown was written by Gary Young (Shooters, Spivs) and should be given a deft look by Control’s director of photography Martin Ruhe.
