Pusher Premiere and after party at Hoxton Pony

Bronson Webb, Agyness Deyn and Richard Coyle

On Thursday 4th October, the gritty modern remake of Pusher saw the cool hipsters of London flock to The Hackney Picturehouse for the inuagural premiere. Following closely to the script of the 1997 original, the star studded cast gave an incredible performance and made it all feel very real.  Agyness Deyn was particularly good in her debut acting role.  Guests included Agyness Deyn, Richard Coyle, Suki Waterhouse, Bronson Webb, Nicolas Winding Refn, Luis Prieto, and Orbital.
With the guests clearly impressed with the film itself with the new backdrop of London, they then made their way to The Hoxton Pony, where the celebrations could truly begin. Agyness Deyn was clearly enjoying herself, and attendees approached her throughout the night to offer their congratulations. Meanwhile the rest of the cast relaxed and enjoyed the cool atmosphere of the Hoxton Pony which was the perfect setting for the after party, with Hoxton Gin being the drink of choice.

Looking stunning in a white Comme Des Garcons dress Agyness Deyn said – “I always had this compelling idea to do acting. I was craving something but I didn't know what it was.  It stemmed from modelling but when I tried acting that was it... I knew this is what I wanted to carry on with”.

Madrid director Luis Prieto  said – “I wanted to make it feel real, so all of the club scenes you see are real. We went out on a Friday night waited for everyone to come and then we just  shot until 5am. They wouldn't turn the music down for us so at times it was quite a challenge, but I think the affect is perfect.  We shot the whole film in 30 days which is an achievement”.   

Danish producer Nicolas Winding Refn and director of the original went onto say- “Zlatko Buric shot all of his scenes in just 3 days.  His character Milo is my dear friend Ryan Gosling’s favourite character and he can’t wait to see the remake”.
