BREAK Films and Scanner-Rhodes Productions announce the forthcoming release of the new British independent film Break – a heartwarming, thriller starring Sam Gittins, David Yip, BAFTA Winner Adam Deacon and the late, great Hollywood screen icon Rutger Hauer, in his final screen role.
To Have A Future, Make Your ‘Break’
Written and directed by Michael Elkin, and produced by Dan Fisher alongside actress/producer Terri Dwyer, the film – shot on location in Beijing, London and at Sheffield’s world famous Crucible Theatre – tells the rags-to-riches story of the troubled, but innately talented Spencer Pryde (Sam Gittins), an inner-city kid, wasting his life on petty crime and violence.
However when presented with an opportunity to turn his life around, following a chance encounter with Chinese stranger and former ‘eight ball’ pool champion, Vince Qiang (David Yip) and tough guy club owner Ray (Rutger Hauer) – will Sam be able to break away from the negative influences around him and use his talents to make a change for the better?

‘Break’ From The Past
“Break was ten years in the making” Michael Elkin explains. “It was a struggle, but I am proud to say we got there in the end.”
“I am a working class guy from a South London estate but I have always believed that everyone has a talent for something, and if the film’s positive message can inspire even a small percentage of kids to turn away from knife crime and use their god-given talents, I will be a happy man.”
Break’s UK theatrical release is set to coincide with Sheffield’s 2020 World Snooker Championship (April 18th – May 4th). There will also be a private gala screening held in Sheffield on Monday April, 20th, ahead of the films nationwide release.
