Joe Cole has joined the cast of Pulse Films' upcoming drama "Gangs of London," according to Variety. Sope Dirisu ("The Huntsman: Winter's War") has also been cast in the series, which air on Sky in the U.K. and CineMax in the U.S.

The series hails from writer-director Gareth Evans ("The Raid") and is being produced by Pulse Films in association with Jane Featherstone's Sister Pictures. The series is in production now.

The thriller follows the power struggle that ensues when a criminal KINGPIN is assassinated, creating a power vacuum, and international gangs battle for control of London's underworld.

Also appearing in the series are Lucian Msamati ("Kiri"), Michelle Fairley ("Game of Thrones"), Mark Lewis Jones ("Child 44"), Narges Rashidi ("The Girlfriend Experience"), Jing Lusi ("The Romanoffs"), Pippa Bennett-Warner ("MotherFatherSon"), and Brian Vernel ("Dunkirk").

Orli Shuka ("War Machine"), Richard Harrington ("Hinterland"), Jude Akuwidike ("Beasts of No Nation"), and Emmett J Scanlan ("Butterfly") have also signed on for the series.

Evans created the show with Matt Flannery, and he will direct most of the 10 episodes, which will feature his hallmark complex, choreographed, fight scenes. Corin Hardy will also direct several episodes alongside French director Xavier Gens ("Hitman").
