Fulwell 73, the London based independent production company behind such hits as The Class of 92 (Universal Pictures), One Direction 3D: This Is Us (Sony Columbia), The Guvnors (Metrodome) and The Late Late Show with James Corden, today announce the cast for their latest feature film ‘A Bus Could Run You Over’.

Rapper and singer Elliot Gleave (aka Example) is set to appear as Mac. Model and stage actress Gala Gordon will feature as Marina and Lyndon Ogbourne stars as Connor in a cast full of fresh, young British talent. Fulwell 73 are known for giving first breaks to some of the most exciting young crossover talent from the worlds of music and fashion, having previously cast crossover talent such as Rizzle Kicks’ Harley Sylvester and Ben ‘Plan B’ Dew in their cinematic productions and this latest line up continues that proud tradition. A Bus Could Run You Over is also set to feature more established British talent such as Billy Boyd (Lord of the Rings) and West End and TV stalwart Darren Day. The cast is completed by Hollywood icon Billy Zane, who has starred in some of the biggest and most commercially successful films of all time. Full cast listing below.’

‘A Bus Could Run You Over’ is a comic thriller with dark undertones and a big heart set on the island of Ibiza, and will be directed by Fulwell 73’s Ben Turner and produced by Fulwell 73’s Leo Pearlman. Despite his rich pedigree directing documentary, TV and comedy, including hits such as Class of 92, Laurie Cunningham: First Amongst Equals and numerous One Direction music videos and adverts, ‘A Bus Could Run You Over’ is Turner’s first scripted feature directorial debut, and demonstrates yet again the impressive breadth of varied, high quality productions currently coming from the Fulwell 73 stable, ranging across documentaries, TV, adverts, comedy and feature films. The film is based on the novel of the same name written by Colin Butts (Is Harry Still On The Boat?, Screwed). 

Confirmed cast: 

Owain Arthur - Barry Searle
Billy Zane - Leo
Lyndon Ogbourne - Connor
Joel Dommett - Dex
Billy Boyd - Kyle
Elliot Gleave - Mac
Gala Gordon - Marina
Craig Gazey - Rory
Darren Day - Rik

Principle photography begins at the end of September in Ibiza.

Elliott Gleave (aka Example) commented: 

As soon as I read the script I wanted to be involved. I've been sent over 30 scripts in the last few years and this is only my second film role. I've been choosing my projects very carefully but after meeting Ben and his team I was even more confident in the potential of this film. Can't wait to get started”

Producer Leo Pearlman of Fulwell 73 says:

‘The explosion of interest over the last few years in the States for EDM and in particular for all things Ibiza has been nothing short of remarkable. When you combine that with a great script and a director, Benjamin Turner, who we're all so excited to work with, you have the makings of a great film. If the Coen brothers set a film in Ibiza, this would be it, that’s how good we think this film can be.’

Director Ben Turner of Fulwell 73 says:

‘I’m very excited to be working with such a talented, upcoming cast. Watching them bring the characters to life is an amazing process, and I can't wait to start shooting now.’

Through a network of key investors and executive producers on the project, including owners of some of the most iconic bars and clubs Ibiza has to offer and some of the most famous DJ’s related to the island’s unique sound, the film will have access to a world yet to be captured in a theatrical feature film.

A Bus Could Run Us Over will be released in Summer 2016.
