Chata Pictures have released the artwork for the upcoming film from writer/director Paul Tanter (White Collar Hooligan, Jack Falls), titled The Hooligan Wars. In the vein of The Football Factory and the upcoming White Collar Hooligan, comes the blisteringly violent and gritty story of a man drawn into London’s most lucrative trade.
A bar fight leaves up and coming footballer Andy injured and out of the game. Needing an income to support himself and his pregnant girlfriend, he buys an ice cream van and sets to work. However, he soon finds himself battling intimidation from Polish gangs who use ice cream vans on their patches to sell drugs. Needing protection, Andy allies himself with a gang of British gangsters who introduce him to the world of football hooliganism. Soon Andy finds himself engaging in terrifying violence and forced to sell drugs from his own van. Desperate, and with the police closing in, he searches for a way out before the world he has entered destroys him.
A trailer for The Hooligan Wars is due for release later this week. Here is the poster.
