Mckell David will play the title role in new UK action feature film Montana, directed by Mo Ali.
He will star alongside The Killing’s Lars Mikkelsen, 2012 BAFTA Rising Star winner Adam Deacon, and Top Boy's Ashley Walters in the film which is about to start shooting in London.
Mikkelsen plays a steely eastern European hitman who arrives in
London to avenge the death of his family but is held up after stumbling
on a 14 year-old boy (played by Mckell), himself on the run from drug
lords trying to kill him. The boy is mentored by Dimitri in survival and the dark arts of
assassination and in so doing, learns the true meaning of friendship,
honour and respect.
At the young age of 12 Mckell started his own (hidden camera/sketch) online comedy show via www.youtube.com/LilMckellTv where he went out pranking the public. He also featured in the award-winning feature film My Brother The Devil.
Mo Ali is a Somali-British film director who made his directorial debut with urban gang thriller Shank. Montana is set to start shooting mid-February in London.
