Die-hard Riz Ahmed fans will be glad to see the Londoner lose the American accent and return to his hometown in a new British crime thriller film, City of Tiny Lights, directed by Peter Travis.
Ahmed plays the lead role as private detective (“and the rest”), Tommy Akhtar, investigating the disappearance of a sex worker, with Billie Piper playing his love interest. The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year to good reviews, and releases in UK cinemas on April 7th.
We’re counting down the days to see a moody Riz Ahmed and the darker side of London in this film noir. Watch out for our review!
In the meantime, here’s the trailer.
