Netflix confirms unexpected Bank of Dave sequelNetflix

Netflix has confirmed that its recent movie Bank of Dave is getting a sequel.

The original film is based on the true story of Dave Fishwick and his founding of a community bank in Burnley after discovering that local businesses were struggling to get loans from larger banks, and debuted back in January.

The streamer has now announced Bank of Dave: The Sequel, which will follow Fishwick (played by James Bond's Rory Kinnear) as he takes on "a new and more dangerous adversary: The Payday Lenders".

In his mission to take them down in order to protect some of the most vulnerable communities across the country, Fishwick has to risk all, including his community bank, as well as his liberty and on occasion, his life.

As well as Kinnear, Bank of Dave starred Bridgerton's Phoebe Dynevor, Game of Thrones' Joel Fry and Paul Kaye, Downton Abbey's Hugh Bonneville and After Life's Jo Hartley.

In a three-star review of the movie, Digital Spy said: "Even though you know the story has been embellished for the screen, it's hard not to be swept along with Dave's triumphs.

"It might be fictional, but seeing the 'little guy' triumphing over the elitist corporations will always raise a smile (possibly because we know it probably wouldn't happen that way in real life).

"Bank of Dave won't be the type of movie that'll trouble any best-of-year lists, but as an entertaining and well-performed biopic, it effectively raises the spirits in these bleak January days."

Bank of Dave is streaming now on Netflix. Bank of Dave: The Sequel is yet to confirm a release date.
