The Rise of the Krays is a 2015 low-budget film about the Kray twins who terrorised London during the 1950s and 1960s.[1] The film was funded by Terry Brown and David Sullivan and was in development before the production team learned of Legend, the blockbuster scheduled for release the same year.[2]


The film focuses on the early life of the Krays before their downfall. In comparison to Legend it aims for a gritty authenticity with less glamorising, portraying The Twins as "horrible pieces of work".[2]
