Nick Love (Outlaw, The Business, The Football Factory) revisits Alan Clarke's (Scum, Made in Britain , Rita, Sue and Bob Too!) seminal late 80's TV movie about the violent casual firms that warred on and off the terraces of British football clubs. Love's new film tentatively titled "the firm 1984" is set some years earlier than Clarkes opus and revolves around a different character. Dom, a young wannabe football casual, who get drawn into the charismatic but dangerous world of the firm's top boy, Bex. Accepted for the fast mouth and sense of humor, Dom soon becomes one of the boys. But as Bex and his gang clash with rival firms across the country and the violence spirals out of control, Dom realises he wants out – until he learns it’s not that easy to simply walk away.
The film stars Daniel Mays as Yeti, Calum McNab as Dom and Paul Anderson as Bex the role played by Gary Oldman in Clarkes film.
