Cornish businessman Richard Driscoll is facing a possible prison sentence after being convicted of tax evasion related to the Film Tax Credit Fund. The 54-year-old was found to have claimed false Vat rebates after lying about the cost of three projects which included Eldorado, starring Daryl Hannah and narrated by Peter O'Toole.
The final film to star David Carradine, who was found dead in a Thai hotel room shortly after his scenes were shot, Eldorado also features Michael Madsen, Brigitte Nielsen, Jeff Fahey, Steve Guttenberg and former Doctor Who Sylvester McCoy. It's roughly based on an Edgar Allen Poe poem but also features a Blues Brothers tribute band, a strip club owner's wife on the run and a town full of cannibals. It was due to be released in 2012 but sales company Fantastic Films International reports that it never received it.
Driscoll, who also starred in the film himself, claimed. »
