To most Americans, Noel Clarke is probably best known as Mickey Jones, the oft-times hapless boyfriend of Rose Tyler, time-traveling companion to the mysterious Doctor on the British science-fiction series Doctor Who. However, Clarke has been carving himself out an impressive career as a writer and director in England as well as an actor. Check out2006’s Kidulthood which he write and starred in as well as its sequel Adulthood which he wrote, directed and starred in for a good sample of his range beyond Who. Clarke’s latest project is 18.104.22.168, and sees him once again working as a triple threat in front and behind the cameras.
Beyond the fact that it is being tagged as a “crime/thriller,” there’s not much to be found about the film’s plot. Although coming out later this year in the UK, it doesn’t appear to have been picked up for distribution in the States yet. I say “yet,” because the inclusion of Emma Roberts as a lead in the film might entice a few of the smaller distributors to take a look at picking up the picture.
