With there being no let-up in the popularity of British gangster films or indeed interest in the biggest British Gangsters of them all, Ronnie and Reggie Kray, 2015 will see the release of two films based on the Kray Twins life. The Rise of The Krays directed by Zackary Adler and Legend directed by Brian Helgeland.
The Rise Of The Krays is the first of two films directed by Brian Helgeland that charts the rise and fall of Ronnie (Kevin Leslie) and Reggie Kray (Kevin Leslie).
Synopsis: London, 1961: Ronnie and Reggie Kray begin a reign of terror that would endure and define London's East End for years to come. From protection rackets to members clubs, from brutal street brawls and arson to blackmail extending to the Cabinet Office, the Krays rained red on anyone who crossed them.
The Rise Of The Krays is the first of two films charting the brothers' riveting rise and fall — pulls no punches in its bid to portray the true horror of this violent pair. Where other cameras pull away, The Rise Of The Krays maintains its nerve. The question is, can you?
The Rise Of The Krays is released on Blu-ray and DVD on August 31, 2015, courtesy of Signature Entertainment.
Legend starring Tom Hardy as both Kray twins is based on John Pearson's brilliant book The Profession of Violence: The Rise and Fall of the Kray Twins, and so using that as a bench mark we should be in for a treat.
Synopsis: 1960s icons the Krays live again through the double-barrelled performance of Tom Hardy as he takes on the roles of both Reggie and Ronnie Kray in riveting feature film, Legend tells the secret history of the extraordinary events surrounding twin crime bosses the Kray twins in 1960's London.
Legend is release in UK cinemas 11 September 2015
