Released on April 29th, The Veteran is a new “gritty” film from Revolver Entertainment looking at the culture of violence, drugs and gangs on a London estate.
The film tells the story of soldier Robert Miller (Toby Kebbell), returning home from Afghanistan. Living on a violent council estate and finding work in undercover surveillance, he becomes obsessed with taking down a group of local gangsters who are intrinsically tied to a suspected terrorist cell.
Taking the situation into his own hands, Miller embarks on a brutal quest for justice, with devastating consequences.
Kebbell says his character “really struggles to cope with everything going on around him and his whole world is defined by searching for the enemy – he fights one battle after another seeking a new way of life. The issues in the film are very relevant and I hope that I do justice to this incredible role.”
The film has been written and directed by Matthew Hope and also stars Scottish actor Brian Cox
