Still waiting for the official green lighting of “Flash Forward”. This is getting a bit ridiculous, to be honest. Viral marketing and TV promos, yet no official “we have a series”, so what else can we do but talk about
That Deadwood Feeling is a blackly comic film noir, a tale of three guys who dream of making a movie, of becoming players in the game of life. What could be simpler? Michael (Dexter Fletcher, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Hotel Babylon) has the enthusiasm, Jack (Jack Davenport, Pirates of the Caribbean) has the intellect and Frank (Demetri Goritsas, The Bourne Identity) – well, Frank has the answer to everything.
The only minor obstacle is that they haven’t a single original idea between them, until out of the shadows comes this weird actor guy (Richard Stanley, dir. Hardware, Dust Devil) who offers them his life story on a plate.
Off they set on a journey of optimism, exploitation, denial, dreams, both good and bad – and ultimately death. Throughout they re offered words of worldly wisdom by Larry, (David Soul, Starsky and Hutch), a seen-it-all, done-it-all big shot that s if you believe his own publicity.
Watching over the unfolding story is an unnamed character (Angus Deayton) who seems to know everything and how it s all meant to be. But who the hell is he? What¹s his game? And what s his relationship to the mysterious Girl in the Red Dress (Ivana Horvat)?
Although no animals were harmed in the making of this movie, it would be inhumane to let em watch it! LARRY

There’s a trailer up on Amazon. I got the “sent!” notice from Amazon last Friday, so the DVD should arrive soon. Considering the very strange story of this movie’s creation, I’m really curious to see it. Review to follow!
There’s news for the most unexpected of projects – for example
The official website has been updated, and you can read the latest production blog from April HERE.
Now they are on their latest and most dangerous adventure yet, which is why they cannot finish their programmes for us. They are in middle Europe trying to stop a mad GM scientist from manufacturing some hideous cross-breeds and devastating the environment. Goodness knows, they have enough trouble saving their own skins let alone the planet. Anyway, don’t forget to come back here soon for the very latest instalment.
We will, we will…
I’m currently in the process of updating various parts of the website. If you should encounter broken links or cryptic code rather than text, please don’t worry. Everything will work soon again.
