James McAvoy is back on the big screen this September as he is set to lead the cast in Filth.
Filth is the latest Irvine Welsh novel to be adapted for the big screen and sees Jon S. Baird in the director’s chair; he has also penned the screenplay.
Check out the new trailer for the film:
A fantastic cast has been assembled for the film including Jamie Bell, Jim Broadbent, Eddie Marsan and Imogen Potts.
Scheming Bruce Robertson (McAvoy), a bigoted and corrupt policeman, is in line for a promotion and will stop at nothing to get what he wants.
Enlisted to solve a brutal murder and threatened by the aspirations of his colleagues, including Ray Lennox (Bell), Bruce sets about ensuring their ruin, right under the nose of unwitting Chief Inspector Toal.
As he turns his colleagues against one another by stealing their wives and exposing their secrets, Bruce starts to lose himself in a web of deceit that he can no longer control.
His past is slowly catching up with him, and a missing wife, a crippling drug habit and suspicious colleagues start to take their toll on his sanity. The question is: can he keep his grip on reality long enough to disentangle himself from the filth?
Film is released 27th September.
