Suits actress Meghan Markle is certainly having a moment in the spotlight—and not just because she’s been officially confirmed as Prince Harry’s love interest. Markle’s career is also on the upswing, as she’s the lead in a British crime thriller, Anti-Social, that’s getting its North American release (and a special edition cut) this January.
In the gangster drama, Markle plays a high-fashion model dating a street artist who may or may not be connected with some major jewelry heists. The story is actually based on three real-life London crimes of the last decade, including the Graff Diamonds robbery in 2009, the Selfridge’s Burka robbery in 2013, and the Brent-Cross robbery in 2012. Directed by Amy Winehouse’s boyfriend Reg Traviss, Markle stars alongside Gregg Sulkin and British rapper Skepta, who plays a criminal mastermind.
“I hate violence,” Markle says at one point in the trailer, which features plenty of smash-and-grab action and police activity alongside posh parties attended by a glamorous Markle.
Stateside fans of Markle will be able to watch Anti-Social: Special Edition on video on demand on Jan. 2. It was originally released in the U.K. in 2015.
