Director and writer Jamie Childs said of the film: “We see so many American films set in atmospheric cities that don’t connect to the sink local stories. I thought, why don’t we do this in Britain?

“We started pushing the envelope of what was possible stylistically and tonally in our area. The clash of pastoral and industrial worlds is the perfect setting for a thrilling, pulpy chase thriller.

“I wanted to prove to a rising wave of potential filmmakers that we can take advantage of what’s right on our doorstep and still attract an international audience.”
