In case you haven’t heard, Craig Fairbrass is a certified cinematic badass. Know why? Because he’s Craig Fairbrass. Even if he wasn’t a badass, he’d still be Craig Fairbrass. And if he wasn’t Craig Fairbrass, he’d still be a certified badass. Wrap your head around that one for a second. Then readily admit that you’re a lesser human being.
All kidding aside, the guy is going to have a lot on his plate in 2014. Fairbrass recently signed a multi-picture deal with Stealth Media Group’s Adrenaline label. The company is focusing on action flicks with international appeal, so expect good guys punching bad guys while things blow up. As someone who lives and breathes this stuff, I’m all for it.
Fairbrass is producing these flicks through Impact Entertainment. He’ll also get some assistance from the boys and girls at Stealth and Nick Hamson’s Studio Soho. If you’re a fan of the actor’s work, then you’ll have plenty to keep you busy well into the future. Lucky us!
He’s a description of the upcoming motion pictures:
GUNNED DOWN – A modern day ‘Get Carter’
Armed robber and career criminal Jack London seeks the truth behind his father’s murder and the whereabouts of a stolen stash of heist money, and in doing so he puts his family’s lives in danger. The devastation that Jack soon discovers puts his own very existence into question. Set in and around Spain’s glamorous Marbella and London’s dark underworld, Jack battles to unravel the mystery and exact his brutal revenge on all those responsible whilst being pursued by gangland criminals and a corrupt police detective.
RECON HELL – ‘Predator’ meets ‘Dawn Of The Dead’
When a group of private mercenaries are dispatched to the desolate
tunnels of the London underground, they are given one order- SEARCH and DESTROY the military experiment that has escaped under the city of London. The Mercs have no idea what lies in wait and a brutal battle to the death ensues, not only with the creature, but with an army of zombies who are spreading the infection. Can they stop it reaching the surface? And will any of them survive?
ZERO HOUR – A modern day ‘Wild Geese’, based on the true story of Operation Barras.
Sierra Leone, 10th September 2000. Six British soldiers are being held hostage by The West Side Boys, one of the most vicious gangs in West Africa. Public confidence has fallen for the British forces operating in Sierra Leone and the Government, realizing it must act fast, authorizes an assault on the West Side Boys’ base. The SAS commence the rescue operation, engaging the crazed, cocaine-fuelled West Side Boys in an intense shoot-out. Zero Hour tells the true story of the boldest military rescue attempt of modern times, and of the heroes that carried it out.
All of the flicks will feature Craig Fairbrass in a lead role. Although it’s unclear when these movies will see the light of day, you can rest assure they’re coming. While you’re waiting for all this to arrive, keep your eyes peeled for “The Outsider.”
The flick tells the story of a “a British military contractor who is told his daughter has died. When he arrives in Los Angeles and discovers the body is not hers, he goes after the internet fraudster who abducted her and wreaks havoc through the city of Los Angeles until he rescues her.” Fairbrass, Jason Patric and James Caan star. Sounds good to me!
We’ll cough up more info as soon as it arrives.
