The Mob Film Co produces “blockbuster” commercial with Rowan Atkinson


Manchester’s Mob Film Co are working with director Paul WS Anderson and actor Rowan Atkinson on a major commercial for Etisalat.

It’s been shot on location and at Elstree Studios, with Atkinson starring as “Agent One” in an extended trailer, made to look more like a Hollywood movie.

He’s on a mission to the UAE to find somewhere where he can’t get an Etisalat signal, which sees him climb the world’s tallest building, dive underwater and speed across the country in boats and supercars.

The Mob brought in Paul WS Anderson to direct it and co-develop the idea with Deja vu and Caviar Creative. According to those on set, it required an “army” of specialist vehicles and stunt teams.
