As you can probably tell from the review, I rather enjoyed Luis Prieto’s remake of Pusher, making several comments about how good the cast were. So when I got the chance to speak to the film’s leads, Richard Coyle and Agness Deyn, I jumped at it.
Kicking off with a chat about seeing a massive version of Coyle’s face on the posters, we touched on the similarities of the film to the original Pusher, as well as the influence that Drive had on the film. We also spoke about the way the team managed to shoot in an open nightclub, without any interference from the punters, and I broke my usual rules of detached professionalism, to compliment Deyn on her performance. In fact, this the 4 minute 10 second point in this interview marks the exact moment I began to go soft.

Pusher is released in UK cinemas this Friday 12th October.
