Hustle star Matt Di’Angelo has been cast in the lead role for new British crime thriller, Two Days in the Smoke, due to be released this Autumn.
Di’Angelo plays the role of Brad, a struggling city lawyer whose life goes into turmoil following a conversation he overhears about a drug deal.
The film also charts his journey to becoming a hopeful romantic, as he falls in love with a prostitute called Jodie, played by the film’s leading lady, Lili Bordán (Silent Witness, Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome).
What unfolds is a race against time as Brad and everyone he comes into contact with find their lives – and destinies – have become inextricably interlinked.
Talking about the new project, Matt said: “I’ve done lots of TV but I was compelled to take on the role of Brad when I read the script for the first time because I’ve always wanted to play a romantic lead.
“I get a lot of film offers but what’s great about Two Days in the Smoke is that it’s not just another typical gangster movie, it allows me to be versatile as an actor because there are action packed fight scenes but also an emotional love story attached to my character.”
