FIRST LOOK: See the first trailer for Gerard Johnson's Hyena - In Cinemas March 2015 - WATCH THIS!

See the Trailer for HyenaI would ask if you are ready for another gritty powerful Brit gangster flick. The type only the Brits and maybe Danish know how to do properly. But I don't think anyone is ready for Gerard Johnson's Hyena.

Hyena has been quietly boiling in its pot since Number 9 Films kicked off production last year and announced that Gerard Johnson’s follow up to his acclaimed debut, Tony would be an original crime tale - Hyena a police thriller set in contemporary West London amongst the Turkish and Albanian communities focussed on Michael Logan an anti-hero for our times.

With an exciting cast of talent that includes some of our favourites: MyAnna Buring (Twilight Saga: Breaking DawnDownton Abbey), Stephen Graham (Tinker Tailor Soldier SpyBoardwalk Empire and Neil Maskell (KILL LIST!!!!!!Utopia), Elisa Wald Lasowski (Eastern PromisesGame of Thrones) all playing alongside Gerard Johnson regular (and) lead Peter Ferdinando (TonyA Field In England).

 The gritty and stylistic drama about a corrupt cop who gets in too deep caused a bit of stir when it opened the Edinburgh Film Festival gathering a quick following of fans.

Hold on tight here comes Hyena!.

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.

Hyena

Good policing doesn't necessarily mean doing everything by the book. But as the business of crime in London turns to favour the Albanians and Turks, how does a "good" policeman survive?
