It premiered at the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival last Monday. Malachi Smyth directed it; Matthew James Wilkinson of Stigma Films and Ben Pullen of Sentinel Entertainment produced the film. Will Poulter and Johnny Flynn play the crooks, Naomi Ackie is Poulter’s love interest. The Score is a mix of a real-time heist thriller, romance, and a musical.

Tim Dellow also represents Flynn’s music.
Will Poulter Takes on His New Challenging Role with the Johnny Flynn Musical Heist Film The Score
Poulter has come a long way from being meme from his role in We’re the Millers. He has had a massive glow-up and has buffed up for his new films. Most recently it was announced he’d join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Will Poulter starred opposite Michael Keaton in the critically acclaimed Hulu series Dopesick. He has come a long way from the bumbling Eustace Scrubb in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Poulter will get in touch with his musical side for The Score with Naomi Ackie and Johnny Flynn. It definitely is a new play on the heist genre, and it allows Poulter to show audiences his range. Poulter has been in dramas, comedies, and adventure movies already.
Johnny Flynn has already flexed his vocal muscles in Stardust and has made music with his band. Will Poulter opens himself up to a whole new audience base for his role in The Score, and the trailer shows that he knows what he’s doing.
