VINNIE JONES has hit out at film bosses for releasing SMOKIN’ ACES 2: ASSASSINS’ BALL straight to DVD rather than showing it in movie theatres.
The hardman played hitman Finbar McTeague opposite Tom Berenger and Sofia Vergara in the sequel to director Joe Carnahan’s 2006 film.
The movie went straight to DVD in January (10), and Jones is annoyed after executives at Universal Studios skipped a big-screen release.
He says, “I’m really proud of it because it’s a brilliant movie, but from day one it was straight to DVD.
“I asked the bigwigs at the film company why, and they just said, ‘That’s business.’ It’s a bit of a b**lock-ache.”
