Trailer: 'Screwed' Starring Noel Clarke

Black actors must be getting a lot of work both here and across the pond, because there are quite a few film trailers I've posted over the past few days...and that's a good thing! Always a good thing!

BAFTA award winning UK writer, director and actor, Noel Clarke (Kidulthood, Adulthood, 4,3,2,1) stars in 'Screwed' alongside James D'Arcy and Frank Harper.

The film is a semi-biographical story based on the experiences of former prison guard Ronnie Thompson who spent seven years working in some of the UK's most dangerous prisons. Based on Thompson's book of the same name, the project stars James D'Arcy (Master & Commander), Noel Clarke (Kidulthood), Frank Harper (The Football Factory), Jamie Foreman (Layer Cake), Andrew Shim (This Is England) and Kate Magowan (Stardust). The story revolves around former soldier Sam Norwood who takes a job as a prison officer when he returns from Iraq and becomes exposed to the underworld of prison culture - including corrupt guards and drug trafficking. 

'Screwed' director Reg Traviss is the current beau of Amy Winehouse, and hits UK cinemas nationwide on June 3rd.

Will you be going to see it?
