A new trailer and poster for the British remake of Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn’s Pusher have been released. The film centers on Frank, a drug dealer (Richard Coyle) who gets busted by the cops and has to throw away his product. When he returns to the mob boss (Zlatko Buric reprising his role from Refn’s trilogy) without the unsold drugs or the money to pay for them, Frank frantically tries to find a way to repay the mobster. I still haven’t seen Refn’s original films so I don’t have much to compare it to, but the trailer for director Luis Prieto’s English-language take on the material looks interesting enough. Refn is involved in the remake as an executive producer, so I doubt the pic strays too far from the original.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer and check out the poster. The pic also stars Agyness Deyn, Bronson Webb, and Paul Kaye. Pusher will be available VOD and on iTunes on September 28th before hitting theaters on October 26th.

Here’s a synopsis for Pusher:
Based on the edgy and explosive series by visionary director Nicolas Winding Refn (DRIVE), PUSHER stars Richard Coyle as a drug dealer who grows increasingly desperate over the course of a week after a botched deal lands him in the merciless clutches of a ruthless crime lord. The more desperate his behavior, the more isolated he becomes until there is nothing left standing between him and the bullet his debtors intend to fire his way.
