Pasqualino, Laviscount To Lead “Snatch” Series

Following his leading turn in “The Musketeers” series on BBC, Luke Pasqualino (“Skins,” “Snowpiercer”) has scored the lead role in the upcoming “Snatch” TV series currently in development for Sony’s streaming network Crackle.

Lucien Laviscount (“Scream Queens”) has also joined the series based on Guy Ritchie’s cult 2000 film of the same name starring Jason Statham and Brad Pitt. Inspired by a real-life heist in London, the story centers on a group of twentysomething, up-and-coming hustlers who stumble upon a truckload of stolen gold bullion and are suddenly thrust into the high-stakes world of organized crime.

Pasqualino will play the central character, the aspirational Albert Hill who strives to avoid being like his father. He will mostly be alongside the previously Rupert Grint as Charlie Cavendish. Laviscount will play Billy ‘F–kin’ Ayers, a handsome and stubborn boxer.

Dougray Scott is also onboard the project which Nick Renton (“The Musketeers”) will direct. Alex De Rakoff, creator and head writer, also serves as executive producer and production on the ten-episode first season begins next week in Manchester ahead of a 2017 premiere.
