Hereford Films and Caffeine Nights announce joint venture Hereford Books


by Dan Bryans\\ EXCLUSIVE 

Independent film production company Hereford Films has announced the launch of Hereford Books, a joint venture with publisher Caffeine Nights. The label will release tie-in novelisations of Hereford’s feature films, as well as ‘expanded universe’ titles of established Hereford Films properties.

Hereford Films CEO Jonathan Sothcott told us “Having enjoyed a successful relationship with Darren Laws and Caffeine Nights on a title-by-title basis, it seemed appropriate to cement the partnership with a new label.”

The first title under Hereford Books will be WE STILL KILL THE OLD WAY: ORIGINS, a 1960s-set crime thriller chronicling the rise of the Archer gang, popularized in Hereford’s cult We Still Kill the Old Way franchise. 

Caffeine Nights Managing Director Darren Laws commented on the partnership saying “Hereford Books will be an exciting new imprint. Hereford Films and Caffeine Nights have a great deal in common, not least of all the love of a fantastic crime or horror story.” 

The novel will be penned by Garry Bushell and is expected to be released in 2018 to coincide with the release of the upcoming third film in the series, WE STILL DIE THE OLD WAY.

Author Garry Bushell said, “I love the Archer gang in the films and what Nick Oldham did with the first novelisation, but this presents a whole new landscape, seeing the guys at the height of their powers in a vibrant, swinging and iconic capital city.”
