Ian McShane has sadly had to withdraw from ‘Last King of the Cross’ due to health reasons. Helium Pictures have announced that Academy award nominee, and serial ‘bad guy’ Tim Roth will now play the role of Ezra Shipman, the underworld boss who tutors John Ibrahim (Lincoln Younes) to continue his legacy.
Mark Fennessy, producer/executive producer said: “It’s unfortunate that Ian is unable to join us and we wish him a speedy recovery. We are truly delighted that the super brilliant Tim Roth joins our cast as Ezra and cannot wait to see him breathe life into yet another unforgettable character.”
Production is well underway with lots of submissions and many MCTV members having already paid a paid visit to the set! More details of the production can be found here.
More to come on this one…
