Of note in the interview he mentions that he starts rehearsals for his new play, Our Boys, next week. The play will run from October 3rd, with previews starting September 26th. He also teases something, possibly related to Wasteland, but says it’s a secret and he can’t share. He did say a trailer should be coming out soon, with the movie hopefully releasing by the end of this year.
He also promotes the song Our Time, by Chris Stocks, that is being sold to raise money for charity. You can purchase the song on iTunes with all proceeds after iTunes commission to CANCER RESEARCH UK. There is also an accompanying video that you can watch on YouTube. The video was directed by his brother Anthony Lewis with cinematography by Chris Lewis and starring Bill Ward, Laura Carter & Sam Cunningham.

Thanks to my lovely friend Kerstin we have a transcript for Matthew’s interview on The Xfm Gordon Smart Podcast, the podcast is now available for download on itunes. He talks about Harry Potter, The Syndicate, Wasteland, The Transmission and much more! You can read the full transcript in the press archive.
Gordon: How many parts are there (in The Syndicate)?
Matt: Uh there’s five.
Gordon: Five parts
Matt: We’re all in all the episodes, but each one sort of centers on one of the characters. Mine’s the last one.
Gordon: Right, okay
Matt: So stayed tuned till week 5
Gordon: I’ve noticed on the inside of your arm you’ve got 11 tattooed there. Is that anything to do with, I’m trying to think, is that Snodgrass that plays for Leeds?
Matt: It’s not. Do you want to know where it’s from? This is really embarrassing
Gordon: Come on
Matt: Um, do you remember Eddy Lewis, the American played for us, left wing. Yeah it’s him. Haha yeah. Basically it was really easy for me, Lewis 11, got my same surname. So I always wore Lewis 11 on the back of my Leeds United shirt and then um, from then onwards whenever he got signed to Darby like after I got it and then I go in and say can I get Lewis 11 on my shirt, there were like, “You know he doesn’t play for us anymore.” Yeah I know it’s my name as well. But then ever since then I always had 11 on my football boots, on my shirt, everything I ever got was 11 and so it ended up becoming quite a number for me, so I got it on there. But it originally stems from Eddy Lewis.
Gordon: One other thing, you’ve got a film that you’ve been working on recently, again with Timothy Spall. When’s that one coming? And what’s it about?
Matt: Yeah. Right, okay. Well it’s yeah Wasteland again shot in Leeds, which is very handy. It’s effectively a heist film, but you know, it’s a new take on it and it’s about friendship and loyalty and redemption as well. If we’re going to get into it, a guy gets thrown in jail for possession of heroine and he’s been set up by a local folk as just a fall guy basically. And um, he gets out of jail and the whole time he’s been in there he’s been planning a way of getting this guy back. But he’s not a criminal; he’s just a lad who, you know was in the wrong place at the wrong time. And he enlists the help of his 3 mates, and I’m one of his mates, and it’s just look we’re gonna rob this guy and we’re gonna go buy a coffee shop out in Amsterdam with this guy I met in prison. And it’s a totally mad idea but their all mates and their all reasonable, if he goes what are we gonna do around here so we might as well go with him, it’s do or die really and they all just go into it and yeah they got to rob this gangster. It’s a bit of fun.
