Hyena revolves around Michael Logan (Peter Ferdinando) an anti-hero for our times: a natural predator and a complex mix of high-functioning addict and corrupt police officer.
But his dark world is evolving. A recent influx of ruthless Albanian gangsters is threatening to change London's criminal landscape.
Michael's razor sharp instincts have always kept him one step ahead, but now his increasingly self-destructive behaviour and the sheer brutality of the new gang lords find Michael in a spiralling descent of fear and self-doubt.
From producers Stephen Woolley (Made in Dagenham, The Crying Game, Mona Lisa), Elizabeth Karlsen (Great Expectations, Ladies in Lavender) and Joanna Laurie.
Hyena reunites director Gerard Johnson with Peter Ferdinando (A Field in England, Starred Up), who played the lead in his debut feature Tony.
The film also stars Stephen Graham (This is England, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), MyAnna Buring (Twilight, Downton Abbey), Neil Maskell (Kill List, Wild Bill), Elisa Lasowski (Somers Town) and Richard Dormer (Good Vibrations).
Hyena is released in October 2014.
