Colm Meaney will be back on the small screen soon enough for an upcoming role in a Sky Original Production called 'Gangs of London'.

He will star alongside Paapa Essiedu ('The Miniaturist', 'Kiri') and Valene Kane ('Rogue One', 'The Fall') in the new series from acclaimed writer/director Gareth Evans, the man behind 'The Raid' franchise. Evans is known for his complex choreographed fight scenes which 'Gangs of London' is set to feature plenty of.

Best known for his role in 'Star Trek: Deep Space Nine', Colm Meaney has starred in more than 70 films including Robert Redford’s 'The Conspirator' and has recently starred opposite Denzel Washington in the Broadway Hit 'The Iceman Cometh'.

'Gangs of London' is described as a contemporary thriller, "set in one of the world’s most dynamic, multicultural cities – one which is torn by the turbulent power struggles of the international gangs that control it. When the head of a criminal organisation is assassinated, the sudden power vacuum his death creates threatens the fragile peace between the intricate web of gangs operating on the streets of the city."

Also in the cast of 'Gangs of London' is David Bradley who is best known for playing Argus Filch in the Harry Potter franchise, a BAFTA award winning performance in 'Broadchurc'h and Walder Frey in 'Game of Thrones'

'Gangs of London' is now filming in London with no release date announced as of yet.
