The psychological horror is the full-length directorial debut of Spanish filmmaker Jorge Dorado, with Strong reunited with his brilliant Blood co-star Brian Cox alongside rising actress Taissa Farmiga (younger sister of Oscar-nominee Vera Farmiga »

A live-action The End of the F**cking World television adaptation is currently being shot in the UK.
Teotfw centres around two disturbed teenagers who squat in an abandoned house.
"The End Of The F**king World is a dark teen comedy based on the comic by Charles S Forsman," wrote Entwistle on his website.
"It's a live action version which will transport Charles's visions of the Us to a nihilistic, recession-laden UK."
Teotfw has been collected into a single volume by Fantagraphics Books. »
He may be favourite for the role of Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel sequel, but British actor Mark Strong still has a number projects on the cinematic (and small-screen) horizon.

His supernatural ‘gift’ allows him to take on the case of a brilliant, yet troubled sixteen-year-old girl who may by a victim of trauma… or capable of something sinister.

There are currently no release dates slated but we do have the first mysterious, and albeit Spanish poster, for the film also featuring Indira Varma, Noah Taylor, Saskia Reeves and Jessica Barden.

‘From The Director Of Kidulthood’ aren’t exactly a set of words that inspire confidence when approaching a film. This is yet another British take on a well-worn genre that adds very little to rules and events set out many years before. Comedown sees a group of youths trapped inside a derelict tower block who get taken out of the equation one by one.
The film begins like a spiritual successor to Kidulthood. We are introduced to a bunch of incredibly unlikable characters that seem hell bent on having us hate them. Possibly a technique used to make the kills more gratifying later on, it also serves as a distancing device as we try our hardest to connect with these characters.
