The Intent – A glossy thriller, packed with an incredible cast of UK actors and music artists makes its debut in selected UK cinemas and is available on digital download from iTunes on the 29th July 2016.
Set in the heart of London, the chilling tale of gang warfare, greed and drugs unfolds. Newfound infamy for the TIC crew affords the gang members the fast life, which catches the attention of all the wrong people and trust starts to become an issue, ultimately leading to their downfall. Infiltration, dishonour and ego are key to the plot but the key question is, what is “The Intent” of each player.
Featuring a cast of celebrated acting talent, The Intent also debuts a stellar line up of musicians in their first on-screen roles. MOBO nominated and former Topboy actor/musician Scorcher takes the lead as ‘Gunz’ and stars alongside Ashley Chin (Starred Up, Plastic), award winning Hip Hop Duo Krept & Konan, Femi Oyeniran (Kidulthood), Jade Asha (As Bad as Me), Nicky Slimting Walker (It’s a Lot), Dylan Duffus (1 Day), Shone Romulus (Topboy), Sarah Akokhia (Hallows Eve) and rap royalty Fekky.
In a groundbreaking move that merges the world of UK film and music, co-directors Nicky Slimting Walker and Femi Oyeniran present an equally thrilling soundtrack that sets the tone and propels the audience throughout. Loaded with exclusive records written specifically for the film, Ghetts, Scorcher, Tanika, Stormzy, Fekky and Ms Banks all feature on the 18-track album that will be released to accompany the film.
Featuring exclusive glimpses and cutaways from the film, ‘Expensive’ from Big Tobz is released. The track and video give an insight to the high life and the world that is uncovered in the bold and eerie tale that is about to unfold in ‘The Intent’.
