Returning to complete the first ever seperately made for film release trilogy of British films, comes Jack Falls, the film noir follow up to Jack Said and Jack Says and final installment in Jack's downward journey. Surviving a murder attempt in Amsterdam, former undercover police officer Jack Adleth returns to London to seek revenge and settle some old scores, but he soon finds himself in danger not just from his former criminal associates, but his old police colleagues too. As he battles to stay alive, he must also deal with the guilt from the consequences of his undercover life.
Shot in high contrast black and white with splashes of colour, Jack Falls is reminiscent of Sin City, but with a more gritty, real edge. The film stars Tamer Hassan (The Business, Layer Cake), Simon Phillips (Jack Said, Jack Says), Alan Ford (Snatch), Olivia Hallinan (Lark Rise to Candleford, Sugar Rush), Dexter Fletcher (Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Stardust), Adam Deacon (Adulthood, Kidulthood), Doug Bradley(Hellraiser), Zach Galligan (Gremlins), Jason Flemying (Lock Stock, Kick Ass) and Martin Kemp (The Krays).
Brought to the screen by Press On Features, the company behind the previous Jack films and post-apocalyptic thriller The Last Seven (out at the end of August), the film has gone back to the roots of the original graphic novels written by Paul Tanter, who as well as scripting the film also directs this installment. Jack Falls is due an Autumn release.
