In 2023, it was announced that the British-produced biopic Bank of Dave would be getting an unexpected sequel on Netflix. With production coming to an end, here’s everything we know so far about the sequel.

The project was first announced by Netflix back in April 2023, months after Netflix UK and Ireland had exclusively acquired the rights to the first movie, where it’s labeled as a Netflix Original. The first movie eventually landed on Netflix in more international territories (including the US) as a licensed title in late December 2023.

According to FlixPatrol, following its initial release on Netflix UK, Bank of Dave was featured in the UK Top 10s for 22 days and in Ireland for 19 days. Following its more extensive rollout in December 2023, it featured in the top 10s in multiple countries for two days.

Chris Foggin, who directed the first movie, is returning to direct the sequel. Other credits include This is Christmas, Fisherman’s Friends, and Kids in Love. Foggin can be seen directing below in a picture posted by David Fishwick with the caption, “Describing the production on X, David Fishwick said, “Our new Netflix Movie is definitely much bigger than our first film, and you can tell by the size of the track we are laying!! From here to London!”

Tempo Productions are behind the new movie alongside Future Artists Entertainment and The Ingenious Group. The first movie was distributed by WME Independent, with Netflix buying the rights from them.


What will happen in Bank of Dave 2? Who’s starring?

The logline for the sequel of the movie currently just states that we’ll see “Dave Fishwick taking on a new and more dangerous adversary: The Payday Lenders.”

The sequel is, just like the first movie, based on real events with Dave Fishwick having taken on payday loans (essentially legalized loan sharks) in the 2010s and a TV special titled Dave: Loan Ranger.

Rory Kinnear (Black Mirror, James Bond, The Imitation Game) will be returning to play the titular character. Jo Hartley is confirmed to be returning as Nikki Fishwick in the sequel, with the actress posting on X that she’d be returning on March 3rd. Hartley can also be found in Netflix’s After Life from Ricky Gervais.

It’s unclear whether Joel Fry and Phoebe Dynevor will return.

In February 2024, Deadline announced that Chrissy Metz (This Is Us) will play Jessica, a New York resident who is a journalist writing a story on Fiswick.

Shaun Chambers has also joined the cast, playing the role of Mr. Jenkins.


Where is Bank of Dave 2 in production?

Filming began in late February 2024, with cameras rolling from February 25th. The scheduled wrap date is March 26th, 2024.

The sequel is being filmed predominantly in Yorkshire, London, and Burnley, with Fishwick confirming through multiple posts on X that they filmed at his home.

Local reporting from Burnley also suggests filming locations include a fish and chip restaurant on Trafalgar Street and the area near Keirby Hotel. In Yorkshire, filming was seen to be taking place at Caramba Steakhouse.
