Billy Zane, Miranda Richardson, Harriet Walter, and Michael Biehn are joining the cast of Sky One’s street race drama Curfew, a Sky original production.

The show, which follows the story of people competing in the world’s fastest, most furious illegal night-time street race, will see Zane (Titanic, Zoolander), Richardson (Stronger, Churchill), Walter (Atonement, The Crown) and Biehn (Aliens, The Terminator) join previously announced cast members Sean Bean (Broken, Game of Thrones), Adrian Lester (Riviera, Trauma), Phoebe Fox (Blue Iguana, Intrigo: Samaria), Malachi Kirby (Black Mirror, Roots), Robert Glenister (Hustle, Spooks), Aimee-Ffion Edwards (Troy: Fall of a City, Peaky Blinders), Rose Williams (Reign, A Quiet Passion), Elijah Rowen (Vikings) and Guz Khan (Man Like Mobeen, Borderline).

Zane said: “Joining the immensely talented cast and crew of Curfew as Joker Jones fulfils many cinematic and literary fantasies all at once. Playing a gonzo cowboy, member of a viral video performance art troupe, on a healing hell-ride, just about falls square in my wheelhouse right now.”

Richardson said: “A childhood of soaking up westerns has finally paid off, except that the horses are replaced by cars! I’m feeling lucky to be interpreting Matthew Read’s Lou: kind, tough, brave, practical and romantic, – someone you definitely want on your team. All this and the chance to drive two wildly different vehicles. Curfew is covering a lot of new ground for me which is always fun. Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy ride!”

The eight-part series from Tiger Aspect Productions in association with Moonage Pictures will be available exclusively on Sky One and TV streaming service NOW TV in 2019.

Curfew is written and executive produced by Matthew Read (Pusher, Hammer of the Gods). The series is executive produced for Tiger Aspect Productions by Will Gould and Frith Tiplady in association with their new independent production company Moonage Pictures. It is directed by Colm McCarthy (The Girl with All the Gifts, Peaky Blinders) and is produced by Simon Maloney (King Charles III, Peaky Blinders).

Curfew was commissioned for Sky by head of drama Anne Mensah, director of Sky One Adam MacDonald and director of programming for Sky Entertainment UK & Ireland Zai Bennett. Sky Vision will handle distribution rights.
