World Exclusive: The Firm Poster
Nick Love's football casuals

29 June 2009  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen  

submit to reddit

The Firm sees Nick Love, the man behind The Football Factory, return with another glimpse of the dark side of the beautiful game and here's a first glimpse of the poster in all its shellsuited-and-booted glory, courtesy of Warner Bros.

Originally an Alan Clarke-directed TV drama with Gary Oldman as an unhinged crew leader, The Firm is given a different skew by Love's reboot which follows the seduction of the funny, fast-mouthed Dom (Calum McNab) into the violent world of football hooliganism. Expect the insults - and bottles - to fly as a soon-hesitant Dom finds the casual lifestyle a lot easier to get into than out of.


The Firm is in cinemas on September 25, and co-stars Paul Anderson as gang leader Bex and Daniel Mays.

Meh....
Enjoyed Football Factory, The Business was amusing, but Outlaw was one of the biggest piles of wank I have ever seen. I do wish they'd leave this alone though, Still, could be worse, they could be remaking ID. Then I would have to kill someone. More

I like Nick Love's films...but this really does look poor. He really needs to stop being a geezar and make something different because I do think he's got a good eye for realism without being all documentary and in your face. More

A director who can turn his hand to anything.
Nice to see Nick Love can do all sorts of films which REALLY stretch his creative boundaries. *cough* More

CHAV YOBBO TWATS AHOY!
Awright Geezah? if you liked crap like The Business, Football Factory and Green Street, then you'll be well up fer this! WHAT A LOAD OF BOLLOCKS. More

This is the worst 'exclusive' ever. I didn't know one of the worst directors in history was remaking a cult British film for TV classic and I am now rather perturbed. Football Factory was puerile and pathetic, The Business was worse and both films have spawned the established 'career' of Danny Dyer. Does Nick Love have no shame? He should be made redundant if possible More

Britain's hardest man
Could this be the worst exclusive of all time? I'm sure Cahiers and Film Comment were fighting tooth and nail for this scoop! More

"D'YOU WANT YOUR SPANKING NOW?"
The original is a classic with some of the best threats/dialogue of any brit film.it captures that era perfectly and no body does "mentalist" quite like Gary Oldman, A hard act to follow indeed but it might be worth a look, just hope they don't employ too many ex-hobbits as hooligans! More

Please NO!
Why does this tool insist on flogging things to death?? Seriously boycotting this film! You're never going to top Oldman in the original! More

Why's he still allowed to make films?
He's given Danny Dyer a career for christ's sake - surely that's criminal enough?! More
