Poster for US theatrical and VOD release of 'The Sweeney'

The new version of The Sweeney will hit theaters and VOD on March 1st from eOne, and as you can see the new poster has debuted. The film is directed by Nick Love and stars Ray Winstone and Ben (Plan B) Drew, and I can't wait to see it. I'm a big fan of the original The Sweeney, which starred John Thaw and Dennis Waterman, from the 70s', so hopefully we'll get plenty of slags and bastards!

Tearing up the streets of London, THE SWEENEY is a stylish, exhilarating action thriller proving sometimes you have to act like a criminal to catch a criminal. Armed and dangerous, the Sweeney Flying Squad are old school crime fighters enforcing the law. Led by legendary detective Jack Regan (Ray Winstone) and his loyal partner, they have their own unique way of operating and always get results. With a bank heist in progress and his old enemy making a reappearance on the London crime scene, Regan will do whatever it takes to get the job done, even defying orders from his no-nonsense boss (Damian Lewis).

RELEASE DATE: March 1, 2013 in theaters and VOD
STARRING: Ray Winstone, Ben Drew, Hayley Atwell, Steven Mackintosh, Paul Anderson, Alan Ford and Damian Lewis
