Danny Jon Jules attends with 'Sucker Punch' promotion
Sucker Punch is a British film unlike any other in that it is not a costume drama, not a rom-com with a token American star and most definitely not a gangster movie. No, Sucker Punch is quite simply a no-nonsense action comedy that delivers on both fronts.
‘Sucker Punch’ was born out of the frustration felt by Malcolm Martin and Gordon Alexander when trying to find finance for their first script ‘The Longshot’.
Favourably received and good enough to secure them an agent, the script also secured them a number of high profile meetings and free lunches at some very nice restaurants but always with the same end result-‘call us in a fortnight, a month, six weeks…’ and then when they called in a fortnight, a month, six weeks it was another round of ‘call in a fortnight, a month…!
That’s why they’re called independent movies because if you waited for the industry break you have to be very, very patient and both Gordon and Malcolm were tired of playing patience.CAST ATTENDING:Danny John Jules - Saturday & Sunday
