Shooting has officially wrapped on Burn Hand Film Productions' THE REVEREND in Cardiff, Wales, UK. To celebrate, we have three stlls for you. Pictured above is Stuart Brennan as The Reverend; below you will find Tamer Hassan as Harold Hicks with his goons as well as the lovely Emily Booth as Tracy.
Writer/director Neil Jones commented on the shoot: "It was a tough 5 week shoot, with plenty of night shoots, but the crew were superb and the cast really stepped up to the plate. I'm excited to start the edit and see it come together now, and to have excitement left at this stage; that's always a good sign."
He also spoke about working with Rutger Hauer, who portrays the Devil: "There are a few actors that you always look to work with and for me, Rutger was a name at the top of my list. And this role was made for him. He's an incredible actor and I think what surprised me most about working with him, was his genuine enthusiasm to make the role memorable. He certainly didn't want to just walk on, perform and leave, he wanted many discussions about how to portray such an iconic role and because of this, I think his performance will be very memorable."
In addition to Hauer, Brennan, Hassan and Booth, the indie vampire flick also stars Doug Bradley, Giovanni Lombardo Radice, Shane Richie, Dominic Burns, Simon Phillips, and Helen Griffin. Currently in post-production, it expected to be released later this year.
Fresh from seminary school, a new Reverend embarks on his first parish, a small, low maintenance Chapel based in a quiet country village. While on the surface the village seems to be a peaceful parish, with perfect residents, soon it becomes apparent that something more sinister lurks beneath the façade of a local businessman.
On a wet, cold night a mysterious girl visits The Reverend at the chapel. Cold and upset she is welcomed in warmly, soon it becomes apparent that her visit is not for sanctuary but to deliver a message, a message in the form of a deep, bloody bite... Awoken with an unknown, uncontrollable thirst a confused Reverend can find no evidence of the girl from the night before, with nothing but the thirst and memory of the bite, The Reverend embarks on his mandate, to clean up the village and the neighbouring estate, by preaching or feasting.
