The latest UK film to hit the big screen is a drama based on the hit book series.
It’s based on The Wire, a BBC drama series which won seven Emmys, including best drama series in 2015.
The film will be directed by Oscar-winning actor Dominic West, who won the award for best director for The Social Network.
“The Wire” is set in Baltimore, Maryland, during the 1990s, and focuses on two of the city’s most famous crime families: the Wire family (Robert Benjamin and Tony Hall), who are part of a family that controls a multi-million dollar drug empire; and the Gangster Disciples, who are the most ruthless drug gangs in the city.
The Wire has become an iconic American crime drama series, and the film will mark the first time the show has been released in the US.
“I’m very honoured to be part of this incredible story,” West said.
“In the lead up to The Wire’s premiere in 2019, the network commissioned a series of films to tell the story of this legendary crime family.
The team that produced the films and produced The Wire are delighted to present The Wire: The Making of a New Crime Drama.”
The Wire was a hit with critics, and its success inspired a series in the 1970s called The Wire.
“Our film takes a different approach, not only to telling the story in the first-person, but also to telling it in the context of the social and political landscape of the time,” said HBO Programming President Amy Perron.
“It is a story that will be deeply relevant to the current political climate and to the way that this great story is told today.”
The film follows the lives of several characters as they navigate the trials of their respective families, including Tony Hall, the eldest son of the Wire patriarchs.
The plot is based on one of the original six novels by William Gaddis, the crime novelist.
“A great deal of the story takes place in Baltimore in the late 1980s and early 1990s,” West explained.
“He has the most unique set of skills and a very intense and intense desire to be able to solve the crime. “
Mike has always had a very specific interest in the crime that he was assigned to solve,” West continued.
“That is a very different way of doing things, and I think it is a different way for this story to play out.” “
West said he was “absolutely” inspired by the series, but it was difficult to choose one to adapt into a film because it “was so well-crafted”. “

“We knew that we wanted to make a film about a great crime drama, but we wanted it to be as true to the books that we were trying to tell and the characters that we’re trying to represent,” West added.
“So we had to take the books, and try to do justice to the story that we had in mind, but with a certain level of exaggeration, a certain amount of exaggeration.”
The movie will feature a number of new characters.
The first major character introduced in the film is the lead detective, Anthony Breslin, played by Josh Brolin.
“Anthony is a character that we didn’t have to worry about,” West told Variety.
“As a director, you know, you’ve got to make sure that your actors are great, that they’re great with the camera, that you know what you’re doing, and you know where they are with the story, and so it was always an issue.”
West also confirmed that there will be a female lead in the series.
“All the other leads have been great,” West confirmed.
“They’re great in their own right, but they have not been the focal point of the show yet.”
The second major character in the movie will be played by Adriana Carrera, the star of the film’s supporting roles.
“She is not a main character, she is a supporting character in a supporting role,” West revealed.
“There is a reason for that, because we wanted her to have some depth to her character, so that you could see her development.”
The cast also includes Tom Wilkinson as the Wire’s chief of police, Sam Worthington as the Gangsters’ chief of security, and Josh McDermitt as the boss of the Gangs.
“Sam has done a great job in this role,” said West.
“Josh has been fantastic, and Adri is one of my favourite actors, so I’m thrilled to be working with him again.”
