This fall Nicholas Hoult is set to star as Steven Stelfox in Owen Harris’s big screen adaptation of author John Niven’s hilarious cult classic Kill Your Friends. Shot in London last year, the dark comedy takes cues from Niven’s own time in the music industry and centers around the Britpop explosion of the mid-’90s.

London, 1997; the British music industry is on a winning streak. Britpop bands Blur, Oasis, The Verve rule the airwaves and Cool Britannia is in full swing. Twenty-seven-year-old A&R man Steven Stelfox is slashing and burning his way through the music business, a world where “no one knows anything” and where careers are made and broken by chance and the fickle tastes of the general public. Fuelled by greed, ambition and inhuman quantities of drugs, Stelfox lives the dream as he searches for his next hit record. But as the hits dry up and the industry begins to change, Stelfox takes the concept of “killer tunes” to a murderous new level in a desperate attempt to salvage his career.

Also starring the likes of Ed Skrein (The Transporter: Refueled) and The Late Late Show host James Corden, Kill Your Friends is due out this September.
