PROJECT NEWS: 18/09/16
Two new scripts have been completed:
LOCH OF THE IRISH - aka Jurassic Pike, this black comedy set in Northern Ireland is about a group of college students hunted by a mythological fish that has local residents mumbling into their Guiness and crossing themselves with incantations. Sitting neatly between "Piranha", "Lake Placid", and "Mrs Brown's Boys", the project "Loch of the Irish" will punch above its weight with a solid cast of amazing talent with a budget to rival the very best comedies of UK independent cinema.
SIREN - a mysterious revenge thriller with a seaborne theme. Pitched as one woman's search for her lost identity and the events that led to her near drowning, it is a tale that has a feel reminiscent of "Hannah" or could even be described as "Splash meets Species" but with a twist that will shock and unsettle even the most hardened of cinema audiences. This project is being scheduled as a low budget independent production, with a cast of complete newcomers, that will test the filmmmakers resolve in filming on location as much as the audiences ability to unravel the mystery.
