CRackle’s adaptation of the Guy Ritchie film Snatch has a release date and key art (above).
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.’
In the trailer, we meet most of the cast – including Rupert Grint (Charlie Cavendish) and Dougray Scot (Vic Hill) – but it’s hard to tell if there’s a character along the lines of Brad Pitt’s Pikey bruiser from the film. Still, it’s a bit of a rush – see yourself by clicking on link.
Snatch premieres on March 16th.
