Gemma Arterton reunites with director J Blakeson (The Disappearance Of Alice Creed) in Culprits. Here’s the new trailer.

Back in 2009, indie thriller The Disappearance Of Alice Creed launched Gemma Arterton’s film career. Eddie Marsan and Martin Compston were the only other actors in the film, which boasted a taut script with plenty of twists and turns. It remains a remarkable achievement.

J Blakeson, who wrote and directed The Disappearance Of Alice Creed, is now reuniting with Arterton for the brand new crime comedy series Culprits.

The synopsis for the incoming show reads as follows:

Joe Petrus (Nathan Stewart-Jarrett) is living the American dream: he’s a fiancé to Jules, dad to Frankie and Bud, and starting his own business in a sleepy suburban town. But unbeknownst to his family, Joe has a secret. Three years ago, Joe was recruited by notorious British criminal Dianne Harewood (Gemma Arterton) to join her crew and take part in a high-stakes crime – one that promised to make Joe rich and provide him with a brand-new life. And now, his dangerous past is about to catch up with him. When a killer starts targeting the crew behind the crime, Joe realizes that the only way to keep his family safe is to return to London, make contact with his old gang, and track down Dianne.

Also in the cast are Kirby, Niamh Algar, Kamel El Basha, Tara Abboud, Kevin Vidal, Ned Dennehy, and Eddie Izzard. The latter’s also starring in Doctor Jekyll, out on 27th October.

Blakeson and Claire Oakley directed the series from scripts by Blakeson, Nadia Latif, Rose Lewenstein, James McCarthy, and Alex Straker.

Culprits will stream on Disney+ in the UK from the 8th November.
