London based award winning Production Company Classic Media Entertainment has announced its planning a feature film on the life of Mad Frankie Fraser
 
June 16, 2008 - PRLog -- Classic Media Entertainment has secured the film rights to the life of Mad Frank and a feature film is currently in development. The Company has recently produced a compelling documentary on Fraser at their London studios and although the interviews at times were heated the film production has Mad Frank’s full endorsement

Classic Media Entertainment’s founder, Tyrone D Murphy is a successful filmmaker whose films have been honoured at International Film Festivals. He also won the best International documentary award in 2006 for his Hollywood film titled The Hollywood Graffiti Gown.

The Fraser Production will have an all-star cast that will play out the roles of this film that will keep moviegoers at the edge of their seats. The company has had serious interest on the Fraser production and is currently in negotiations with a Hollywood production company to handle the US side of the production. Tyrone D Murphy was quoted as saying that “There is a morbid fascination all over the world with British gangster films such as the Kray’s, Charlie Richardson’s film Charlie and Lock Stock and two Smoking Barrels.

Fraser’s criminal career spanned 50 years; he was certified insane on three separate occasions, is reputed to have killed 40 people and spent 42 years in prison. During the 60's the Kray twins tried to recruit him but Mad Frank as he is known to his friends joined forces with Charlie and Eddie Richardson and their South London alleged 'Torture Gang’. The gang were put on trial where Fraser was alleged to have pulled out his victims teeth with pliers.

One member of the criminal fraternity was quoted as saying that “Mad Frank joining the Richardson’s Gang was like China getting the atom bomb” Fraser was also dubbed the most dangerous man in Britain by two Home Secretaries. When asked recently by an America journalist if making a film on Fraser’s life scares him, Murphy was quoted as saying “well it’s like this, Fraser is supposed to have killed 40 people so I suppose killing 1 more would not make any difference to him whatsoever,  it’s just as well he likes me”

Nowadays Fraser operates a Gangland tour in London. 'Mad' Frank personally takes you on the tour providing a running commentary throughout in regards to the criminal underworld, infamous court cases and crimes. The tour also visits the scenes of some of Britain’s most notorious crimes. One of Fraser’s most infamous crimes during his criminal career was to kidnap and hang the Governor of wandsworth prison along with his dog. Fraser is directly quoted as saying” I am glad someone has finally come along who is going to tell my story as it happened” Fraser also went on to say “ This film production has my full endorsement” Principle photography on the production is due to begin in March 2009
