Shane Meadows’ upcoming projects…

I will admit I have become somewhat a fan of Shane Meadows’ work ever since discovering This Is England, and writing a 3000 word essay at a-level, relating it to ‘british social realism’, having thought the films preceding it, especially Dead Man’s Shoes, were absolutely brilliant, his follow-up  project to England,  Somer’s Town, was also enjoyable to watch.

So you could imagine my delight when I found an article on the Empire website detailing his next works, primarily looking at Le Donk, a “balls-out comedy” following an Arctic Monkey’s roadie, played by no less then his good old mate Paddy Considine, who takes a retired rapper, by the name of Scorsese, on tour in the hope of launching his career, bearing in  mind the rapper weighs 17 stone and has converted to Islam.

One of his long-term projects, King of the Gypsies, has been stalled somewhat due to him finding out someone also had a stake in the idea. But another, darker and scarier,  project which will follow that, which Meadows describes as “making Dead Man’s Shoes look like play school”, just got me even more excited.

Anybody else a fan of Meadows’ work and are excited at this prospect??…
