301 TROOP: ARAWN RISING: Hitting The Reset Button For British Action Cinema
301 Troop: Arawn Rising introduces an original tale of two longtime friends - soldiers rejected after failing their commando selection examination, who find themselves in their biggest fight for survival the U.K. Northern wilderness against a clan of possessed Druids performing blood sacrifices in the name of an ancient Celtic underworld god. The film, which is set to go into production this year following further negotiations with distributors, will feature Bennett, actor Alan Calton and actress Cat LaCohie, with Jon Campling, actor and British martial arts cinematic heavy hitter Silvio Simac, and actor Wayne Gordon rounding out the cast.
In December of 2013, Bennett and his crew were finally able to take their project to its next phase, having initally filmed a trailer following a crowdfunding campaign two months earlier. And while the work being an artist and a film producer and director comes weighted with its well over its own fair share of tasks, Bennett's own faith in his brand remains unflinching. "Filming the trailer was such a mental week, but it was also the best time of my life.", he says. "I'm happiest when I'm under pressure, against the clock, bruised and battered and hitting that shit day after day. I'm bringing action back strong, and I'm doing it where it hasn't been done before, here in the U.K.".
With Only The New Breed making headway with 301 Troop: Arawn Rising this year, Bennett and his crew have a clear goal in mind, and fans will learn more about what that entails when the trailer finally arrives. For now though, their official website is up and running, with links to their Twitter and Facebook pages, and plenty of info to learn more about what Only The New Breed has in store.
