Crackle’s ‘Snatch’ Reboot Gets First Trailer With March Premiere
Crackle isn’t generally our go-to network for quirky crime dramas, but its Snatch adaptation definitely looks to have captured the spirit of Guy Ritchie’s 2002 crime dramedy. See for yourself with a premiere date and first trailer, featuring Harry Potter star Rupert Grint, Dougray Scott, Ed Westwick and more.
In addition to a first trailer from Crackle’s TCA press tour panel, the streaming service announced that the new Snatch will premiere on Thursday, March 16. Check out the first poster, along with a full synopsis and cast list below:
Inspired by a real life heist in London, “Snatch,” centers on a group of twenty-something, up and coming hustlers who stumble upon a truck load of stolen gold bullion and are suddenly thrust into the high-stakes world of organized crime. The boys must quickly learn to navigate the treacherous waters of London’s underworld as rogue cops, gypsy fighters, international mobsters and local villains descend.
The 10-episode, one-hour series stars Rupert Grint as the utterly posh, Charlie Cavendish. Best known as Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter film franchise, Grint also serves as an executive producer. In addition, the series stars an ensemble cast featuring Luke Pasqualino (“Skins”, “The Borgias”) as Albert Hill, Lucien Laviscount (“Scream Queens”, “Honeytrap”) as Billy Ayres, Dougray Scott (“Fear the Walking Dead,” “Doctor Who”) as Vic Hill, Phoebe Dynevor (“The Village,” “Dickensian) as Lotti Mott, Juliet Aubrey (The Infiltrator,” “Primeval”) as Lily Hill, and Ed Westwick (“Wicked City,” “Gossip Girl”), who guest stars as Sonny Castillo. The series is executive produced by Alex De Rakoff, who also serves as writer and showrunner.
We’ll likely see more on the road to March, but could Snatch put Crackle further on the map?
