Irish actor Jonas Armstrong (Robin Hood) is currently shooting ‘Twenty8k’, a new feature which centres on London’s underground gangland culture. The feature’s six week shoot commenced in early April in various locations around London and sees Jonas starring alongside Parminder Nagra (Bend it Like Beckham) and Stephen Dillane (The Hours).

‘Twenty8k’is written by Jimmy Dowdall and award-winner Paul Abbott (State of Play, Shameless) and is being directed by David Kew and Neil Thompson (Clubbed). In it Parminder Nagra is Deeva Jani, a successful British-born, Paris-based fashion executive who is forced to return home to the UK when she receives the shocking news that her teenage brother Vipon, played by newcomer Sebastian Nanena, has been arrested for a fatal gang shooting in London. Teaming up with Armstrong’s youth worker and ex-gang member, Clint, played by Jonas Armstrong, Deeva soon finds herself up against powerful and unexpected adversaries including the corrupt but highly connected DCI Stone, played by Stephen Dillane.

30 year old Jonas Armstrong is an Irish born actor who is currently based in the UK. Best known to television audiences for his title role in the BBC One series, ‘Robin Hood’, Armstrong has starred in several other TV dramas including ‘Teachers’; ‘The Ghost Squad’ and ‘The Street’. He also starred as Simon in John Harrison’s feature ‘Book of Blood’.

Produced by Martin Carr and Thompson through their independent production company Formosa Films, AV Pictures are handling worldwide sales. Funding for the film is via a mix of private equity together with the UK film tax credit.
