What we did
Strike were thrilled to be breaking the news that Danny Boyle will be exec producing this title starring a talented British cast. Newly confirmed cast members included Rupert Everett (The Happy Price, My Best Friend’s Wedding), Suki Waterhouse (Assination Nation, Charlie Says) and Jason Flemyng (Lock Stock, Snatch). We also announced that Ewen Bremner (Trainspotting, T2, Wonder Woman, Black Hawk Down) will be bringing his unquestionable talent to the lead role of Alan McGee.
Our team designed an informative and eye catching press release to announce Danny Boyle and new cast member’s involvement with the title. As a result, thirty pieces of coverage were achieved in influential publications such as Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, NME and Deadline within the first two hours of the press release being sent out. This initial success continued, with the news being covered by Metro, BBC, Celluloid Junkie and many Glaswegian publications including The Herald and Glasgow Live.
