What has been said about Back in Business?

“There’s still so much intrigue around that movie and both Tamer and Danny still get a lot of love for it.”

What is The Business?

The Business was set in the eighties and saw Danny and Tamer sport retro tracksuits, which later made a comeback following the release of the movie.

Filmed in Spain, The Business followed the story of street thug Frankie, who escaped to the Mediterranean country from his rough estate in South London.

He develops a close bond with Tamer’s on-screen person Charlie, a nightclub owner, who is partnered with local gangster Sammy, who is played by Geoff Bell.

Frankie, who goes into business with Charlie, then falls for Sammy’s wife Carly, played by Georgina Chapman.

Nick Love, who has written and directed The Football Factory and The Sweeny, wrote and directed The Business.
