The Fan Carpet are excited to announce that the action/thriller feature film exploring illegal bicycle racing in London. Stars Eleanor Tomlinson, John Hannah & Camilla Rutherford. Start Filming Next Week!

Alleycats is an independent action/thriller feature film; exploring the underground world of illegal bike racing in London. These races take place throughout the world and are called Alleycats.ALLEYCATS is the first feature film from acclaimed Director Ian Bonhote. It is a high-octane, action/thriller set in London against the backdrop of the cut-throat world of illegal bike racing.

When bike courier CHRIS stumbles across the brutal murder of a young woman whilst delivering a package, he finds himself in danger. Realising that the perpetrator of the crime, YATES, is a well-known Member of Parliament, Chris sets out to blackmail him. But when Chris takes part in an Alleycat Race, an illegal bike race through the city, he is knocked down and killed in a hit-and-run accident - the driver, RIVES, is Yates’ fixer. Chris has been silenced, but there was a witness...

His sister, and fellow racer, DANNI sees Chris get hit and refuses to believe it was a simple accident. Her forceful and impulsive nature aggravates the police, who are slow to investigate and increasingly untrustworthy. So Danni takes matters into her own hands, uncovering bribery and corruption within the courier community and further afield.

As she begins to piece the puzzle together, Danni joins forces with the murdered young woman’s father, REDMAN, and the unlikely pair threaten to uncover the sinister truth behind Chris’s death and the secret his murderers had hoped would die with him. As she becomes increasingly mixed up in a dangerous and violent world, and the body count rises, Danni must push herself to her mental and physical limits in order to find justice for her brother and come through this alive.

Starring Eleanor Tomlinson (Jack The Giant Slayer, Alice In Wonderland, Angus Thongs And Perfect Snogging And The Up-Coming BBC series: Poldark), John Hannah (Four Weddings And A Funeral, Sliding Doors, The Mummy Trilogy and Spartacus), Camilla Rutherford (Gosford Park, Rome, The Darjeeling Limited, Dimensions and Fleming), Sonoya Mizuno (Ex Machina, High Strung, Venus In Eros), Juan Cely (Blood And Rain, The Passion Of Gabriel, El Laberinto and The Promise) and Virgile Bramly (Inception, Point Blank, The Line Of Beauty, Maderlay and the upcoming Picnic In Gaza), Alleycats shoots in London NEXT WEEK!
