Danny Dyer: ‘More Than A Hardman’

He said: “I turned down a movie recently called ‘Cockneys Vs Zombies‘. I thought ‘F**k me, for f**k’s sake’. That’s the final nail in the coffin for me. The fact they even had the front to use that title. I didn’t even turn the first page of the script.”

The ‘Human Traffic’ star says rejecting the script was a relatively new thing for him because he used to accept anything he was offered out of a fear of rejection.

He told BANG Showbiz: “I’ve had a bit of a spell of going, ‘Yeah, OK, I feel privileged that you want me in your film’. You’ve got to rein that in and say ‘No, it’s not going to test me, it’s not going to challenge me, it’s nothing new.”

Cockneys Vs Zombies? An Eastenders ‘back from the dead’ Christmas special, perhaps?
