Plan B and Ray Winstone set for pub "sessions"

UK urban sensation, Plan B, has pencilled in bonding sessions with actor Ray Winstone ahead of the pair's forthcoming movie in which they will play coppers. 

The 'She Said' singer, real name Ben Drew, confirmed that he will play the role of Detective Sergeant George Carter in a remake of The Sweeney and will star alongside Winstone. He told The Sun newspaper that they're planning to go for a few old fashioned drinking "sessions" to get to know each other before shooting begins:

"Me and Ray have to act like we've known each other for years so there's a few sessions planned. We start filming in November so we'll meet up before that in the pub. It's where all the best business is done."

Speaking about the character he is set to portray, he added:

"Playing a copper who is likeable, that's the hardest fucking thing in the world. When they asked me to do it, I was as surprised as anyone."
