British talent from the big and small screens has been added to the cast of vigilante thriller K-Shop, produced by Bournemouth studio White Lantern Film.
The film, showcasing a kebab shop owner who takes matters into his own violent hands to deal with British binge drinking culture, started filming in Gervis Road, Bournemouth at the weekend.
It has now added Scot Williams, known for a series of British thriller films, to its cast of homegrown talent.
The actor praised the “very talented” writer-director Dan Pringle on Twitter as he announced the role and said he was “glad to be on board” with the film.
Williams will be seen next alongside Vinnie Jones in Redirected, which features a team of bank robbers who find themselves stranded in Eastern Europe.
Joining Williams on the K-Shop set are the Waterloo Road stars Kristin Atherton and Reece Noi.
Noi is best known for his role as murderous tearaway Earl Kelly in the school drama’s fourth series and Atherton currently appears in the show as Vix Spark.
The new additions to K-Shop join the already announced Ziad Abaza – fresh from filming Ridley Scott’s Exodus – and Ewen MacIntosh, who played Keith in The Office.
Writer-director Dan Pringle said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to have finally started principal photography on K-Shop.
“It’s been an amazing journey getting to this point and we now have a very exciting project on our hands with some incredible talent attached.
“If you’d have told me this time last year that I’d be shooting a feature in 2014 with the likes of Scot Williams, Darren Morfitt and Ewen Macintosh, I’d have probably laughed at you but here we are getting underway and it’s amazing.”
K-Shop is a darkly comic, satirical take on Britain’s binge drinking culture.
