EXCLUSIVE: Here’s your first take a look at footage from The Score, a musical heist film with an all-star British solid that premiered at Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival on Monday.
Will Poulter, Johnny Flynn, Naomi Ackie and Lydia Wilson lead the pic, which is directed by Malachi Smyth (Sentinel). The story combines a real-time heist-thriller with romance and a musical soundtrack. It follows two small time crooks, Mike (Flynn) and Troy (Poulter), who’re on a mission that they each anticipate will remodel their circumstances. At a roadside café, as they await a rendezvous hand-over, Troy falls in love with the waitress, Gloria (Ackie), and begins to query his life decisions, whereas the specter of actual hazard is driving to fulfill them.
Pic is produced by Matthew James Wilkinson of Stigma Films (Yesterday) and Ben Pullen of Sentinel Entertainment (Sentinel). Isabelle Georgeaux of Pont Neuf is co-producing.
The movie options songs written by Flynn, who’s the lead singer of band Johnny Flynn & The Sussex Wit. Executive producers on the mission are Nick Angel, who just lately collaborated with Wilkinson on Yesterday, and Tim Dellow of Transgressive, which represents Johnny Flynn’s music. WestEnd is dealing with world gross sales.
