Plan B

Plan B, aka Ben Drew, is to star alongside Ray Winstone in a film adaptation of 70s TV show ‘The Sweeney’, stepping into the role of George Carter, originally played by Dennis Waterman. Whether that means Drew will write the theme tune, sing the theme tune, I’m not sure.

Produced by Vertigo, the film will be directed and co-written by Nick Love and is set for release in summer 2012.

Drew told The Sun: “It’s a dream come true for me to be in a film with Ray Winstone. He is one of my favourite British actors of all time. I’m really excited about working with Nick Love in what I feel will be a challenging role for me to play”.

Winstone added: “I can’t wait to work on ‘The Sweeney’. It was inspired casting to have Ben Drew as George Carter. I’m a huge fan of his”.
