Band On The Run
HMRC pre-approved SEIS
The Babyknives is a Scottish rock band, newly signed to music impresario Tommy Gunn. When a US tour, masterminded by Gunn, catapults the band into the public eye, it’s not long before the band members realise they have been duped by their manager into smuggling for a global drugs operation.
BAND ON THE RUN is a lurid black-comedy set in the fucked-up world of Rock N Roll. Adapted from the book of the same name, it is a rollercoaster of taboo-bursting mayhem. It will be directed by multi-BAFTA nominated, multi award winning director Philip John (Downton Abbey, Spotless, Crossing Lines, Being Human) and written by Dean Cavanagh (Wedding Belles) supervised by
Irvine Welch (Trainspotting). Robert Pattinson is in consideration to play the lead.
Cast attached include:
Brendan Coyle – Tomorrow Never Dies, The Raven, The Jacket.
John Bradley – Game Of Thrones, Merlin, Shameless.
