Production and releaseEdit
The concept of How to Lose Friends & Assassinate People originated following the release of Intervention, which paired Tom Menary and Bill Sheikh in a dramatic two-hander. The story of an assassin and his oblivious friend was intended as a spiritual follow-up to Intervention with a dialogue between the actors. The sniper scenes were filmed in Plymouth University on March 6.
