We are pleased to announce that we will be releasing Reggie Yates' feature directorial debut, Pirates, into UK and Irish cinemas. Release date to be announced.

Written and directed by Yates, the film is produced by Kate Norrish and Polly Leys of the UK's Hillbilly Films.

Pirates is a comedy focusing on three friends driving from North to South London on New Year's Eve 1999 in search of tickets to the supposed hottest party in town.

Pirates began filming in February 2020. Production was forced to shut down on March 19 due to the pandemic, just 10 days from the end of the shoot. However, Yates was able to use the time to edit the footage that had been shot, and alongside editor Ash White had cut more than 60 minutes of the film by early April. The film restarted shooting on September 7, and wrapped on October 1.

Stay tuned for more information.
