Watch the trailer now...

Incoming Mod themed film To Be Someone seems to be Quadrophenia re-united judging by the new trailer.

The film is based on two books, and lifts a Paul Weller lyric for its title - intended to be released last year, the pandemic forced the team to push it back.

Made by the creators of The Krays, The Wee Man and Love, Honor and Obey, this new film has a neat twist - much of the cast originally appeared together in Quadrophenia.

Released in 1979, Quadrophenia accelerated the Mod Revival, and various cast members - including Gary Shail, Toyah Wilcox, Phil Daniels and Leslie Ash - take part in this new venture.

Alas, Phil Daniels - who played lead character Jimmy in Quadrophenia - does not appear in the film.

A full trailer for To Be Someone has gone online, equipped with some plot details...

The co-owner of a popular Mods nightclub and with a successful scooter shop business on the side, life couldn’t be better for entrepreneur and British Mod, Danny. That is until he’s introduced to the club’s secret financier, Mad Mike, an unhinged underworld mobster who is determined to coerce Danny into pulling off an illegal drugs run to The Isle of Wight in return for his shares in the club.

We can't vouch for the quality of the film - it's not Scorcese, put it that way - but there's undoubtedly a few people who would be interested in a Quadrophenia cast re-union.

Check out the trailer below.
