THE RISE is the feature debut of director Rowan Athale starring Luke Treadaway (Attack the Block), who won this year’s Olivier Award as Best Actor for the multi-award winning West End hit The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.
Iwan Rheon (Misfits, Game of Thrones) also stars alongside Matthew Lewis (Harry Potter), Neil Maskell (Utopia, Kill List), Gerard Kearns (Shameless) Vanessa Kirby (BBC’s Great Expectations) and Timothy Spall.
Shot on location in Leeds & Yorkshire THE RISE is a heist film, an underdog story and a thriller from the producers of Cherry Tree Lane and Ill Manors.
Battered, bruised and under arrest, Harvey Miller (Treadaway) sits in a police interview room facing interrogation. Clutching a stack of eyewitness statements, Detective Inspector West (Spall) has no doubt as to Harvey’s part in a foiled robbery, and the subsequent attempted murder of local businessman Steven Roper (Maskell).
