Paul Sykes At Large
Written by Leo Bill and Vaughan Sivell
Status: In Development
Based on a fascinating true story set in the 1980’s. Paul Sykes has spent most of his adult life in and out of jail. A local legend in Yorkshire he’s loved and loathed in equal measure. If you get on the wrong side of him, it’s likely to end in injury. He’s a thug. But not a mindless thug. In fact his intelligence is part of his downfall. Whilst in jail he’s educated himself and written a novel about his life. Now he’s out, he’s determined to make something of himself. Can he resist the temptation of such well paid thuggery? Can he adjust to the chaos of life without the prison rules he’s used to living by?
All in all, remaining ‘at large’ is going to be tricky.
