Storage 24

First profiled on this site last May, Brit renaissance man (director, writer, actor, producer, playwright, and who knows what else), Noel Clarke's sci-fi horror movie that he's been super-secretive about titled Storage 24 now has a trailer, which Clarke himself tweeted about moments ago.

As a recap its synopsis reads:

London is in chaos. A military cargo plane has crashed leaving its highly classified contents strewn across the city. Completely unaware London is in lockdown, Charlie and Shelley accompanied by best friends Mark and Nikki are at Storage 24 dividing up their possessions after a recent break up. Suddenly, the power goes off. Trapped in a dark maze of endless corridors, a mystery predator is hunting them one by one. In a place designed to keep things in, how do you get out?

Clarke, who co-wrote the screenplay, stars in the film; he plays Charlie. Rounding out the starring cast are Antonia Campbell-Hughs as Shelley, Colin O'Donoghue as Mark, and Laura Haddock as Nikki.

The film is apparently complete, and is scheduled for a UK release in June; not sure about the rest of the world.

Clarke's been a really busy man over the last 2 or so years, doing just about everything it seems - acting, directing, producing, writing, etc; I'd say he's maybe the most prominent black British movie talent who's still unknown outside the UK - specifically here in the USA. We all know about favorites like Idris Elba, Sophie Okonedo, Thandie Newton, and Chiwetel Ejiofor especially; but Clarke seems to have reserved himself strictly for UK audiences. But that's likely soon to change, as he'll be co-starring in the Star Trek sequel, and, as he's stated in recent interviews, he certainly isn't resting on his laurels; he definitely has his eye on Hollywood and success in the American marketplace:

"I try to make it to the States twice a year. I have written several scripts and directed two feature movies, and right now my goal is to continue pressing forward with that. I am slowly clawing my way over... I have a few plates spinning in the air at the moment that I think you will be hearing about in the near future."

Until then... on current his slate are the aforementioned sci-fi horror Storage 24, a rom-com titled The Knot, a sports drama called Fast Girls, and a yet-to-be-titled MMA feature, all of which are to be released in 2012. There's also the UK version of Bad Boys he and Ashley Walters are developing (the script is written).

So as other Brit talents say they are facing challenges getting projects produced, Clarke seems to be having very little diffculty, whatever the reasons are.

None of Clarke's films (those he wrote/directed and/or produced) has received a theatrical release in the USA, though you'll find Kidulthood and Adulthood, his earlier works, on DVD/streaming.

To watch the trailer for Storage 24 you'll have to head over the The Sun's website, because they have the exclusive, and I'm not able to embed it here; to watch it click HERE. And then return to share your reactions...
