From the electrifying stage of Wembley Stadium to the silver screen, rising British rapper ArrDee is on a journey that knows no bounds. Fresh off his headline performance at Capital's 2023 Summertime Ball, this rising star is making his feature film acting debut in 'Rise of the Footsoldier: Vengeance,' set to hit UK cinemas this Friday (September 15th)
Making his name back in 2021 with the release of 'Oliver Twist', Arrdee is stepping into the world of cinema with the role of sweet-talking bartender Stevey. Described as a striking pivotal role, ArrDee joins a stellar cast that includes franchise mainstays like Craig Fairbrass, Jamie Foreman, and Josh Myers, as well as newcomers Tara Fitzgerald, Sadie Frost, and Ben Wilson.
This transition from the music stage to the big screen is a testament to ArrDee's versatility and talent. Named by NME as "the UK's next leading rap star," this Brighton-born artist was undeniably the biggest breakthrough UK artist of the previous year with his chart-topping success including multiple appearances on the UK Official Singles Top 100 Chart, with an impressive five UK Top 10 hits to his name.
Despite not having released a full album yet, ArrDee has already made a significant mark on the music industry. He's been on a whirlwind tour schedule, gracing stages at Radio 1's Big Weekend in Dundee and Park Life Festival for Aitch's homecoming show, as well as performing at the iconic Glastonbury 2022 marking another milestone in his career.
'Rise of the Footsoldier: Vengeance' takes fans of the cult franchise on a thrilling ride as the fan-favourite character, Pat Tate, embarks on a rampage to avenge the violent death of his loyal and trusted footsoldier. This time, the journey leads beyond the familiar streets of Essex into the dark and gritty world of 90s Soho.
Director Nick Nevern, who previously helmed 'Rise of the Footsoldier: Origins,' returns to guide the sixth instalment of this massively popular British franchise. Based on the real-life story of Carlton Leach and the infamous Range Rover murders, the Footsoldier series has a dedicated following and a strong track record in home entertainment, with over 1.2 million DVD and Blu-ray units sold to date.
ArrDee's foray into acting is a testament to his boundless talent and determination, as he conquers both the music and film worlds, it's clear that this multifaceted artist is destined for even greater heights.
