EX-EASTENDERS hardman Danny Dyer was pictured with a cut head as he filmed The Football Factory sequel.

The British footy hooligan flick, which has been given the title Marching Powder after its characters’ love of cocaine, comes 20 years after the original cult classic.

The real life West Ham super-fan, whose daughter is in a relationship with Hammers striker Jarrod Bowen, play Chelsea yob Tommy Johnson.

In our exclusive pictures Danny has a grazed forehead as he enjoys a cigarette on set in a residential area.

There are also scuff marks around his eye and nose indicating he’s been in the wars again.

The actor wore a navy jacket, matching shirt, blue jeans and white trainers and, facial cuts aside, was in a much better state than he was left at the end of the first film.

That flick culminated with a huge brawl between Chelsea’s firm and Millwall, led by Fred (Tamer Hassan).

Tommy was beaten to a pulp and taken to hospital having been hunted down for the majority of the film after a violent incident.

The Millwall chief’s brother held a knife to Tommy’s throat after he enjoyed a one night stand with their sister Sian.

Tommy’s pal Rod saved the day – though inadvertently put a mark on his friend’s head – by smashing Fred’s sibling with a cricket bat.

As Tommy tried to evade his rival, he questioned if his violent lifestyle really was all it was cracked up to be.

And the new film will answer lots of fan questions, namely what has become of Tommy in the years since?

A source told us: “The idea is that the new project would follow Tommy in the years that followed, what happened in the firm and the new generation coming up behind him.

“Danny said at the time that the film was about so much more than hooliganism. It was about men and their complex relationships.

“And given how much the world has changed over the past two decades, there is plenty of scope for new themes.

“Naturally, football will be at the heart of it so fans can expect violence and hilarious one-liners. Danny has a lot of love for the film and has spoken to Nick about how it could work.

“It would mean defecting from his beloved real-life club West Ham for Chelsea again but Danny is happy to put on the shirt for another pop.

“There’s an eager audience for this kind of gritty, British film and if they can get the script right, they think it could be a massive success.”
