Signature Entertainment presents Rise of the Footsoldier on Digital Platforms 3rd February
This is what a proper British gangster looks like. Based on his real-life autobiography, 2007’s Rise of the Footsoldier follows Carlton Leach (Ricci Harnett, 28 Days Later) as he evolves from feared football terrace general to a member of one of the most notorious British gangs that operated throughout the late eighties and early nineties. Leach had one goal, and one goal only: by the time he reached the top, everyone would know the name Carlton Leach. Rise of the Footsoldier also stars Craig Fairbrass (Cliffhanger), Roland Manookian (RocknRolla), Terry Stone (Rise of the Footsoldier: Origins) and Neil Maskell (Utopia, Bull), and was directed by Julian Gilbey (A Lonely Place to Die) who co-wrote the script alongside Will Gilbey (A Lonely Place to Die).
