'Whisky Galore!' world premiere to close Edinburgh

21 April 2016 5:56 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Remake of classic Scottish comedy set for world premiere as 2016 Edinburgh closing night gala.

The 70th edition of the Edinburgh Film Festival (Eiff) (June 15-26) will close with the world premiere of Scottish comedy remake Whisky Galore!.

A remake of Alexander Mackendrick’s 1949 feature of the same name, the story follows a group of Scottish islanders who enjoy a windfall of whiskey during the Second World War.

The original was based on Sir Compton Mackenzie’s novel of the same name, which was inspired by the shipwreck off the Scottish coast of a ship sailing for America with a cargo of export-only alcohol during World War II.

The home-grown production was filmed on location in Scotland and features Scottish actors including Gregor Fisher (Love Actually), James Cosmo (Braveheart), Kevin Guthrie (Sunset Song), Sean Biggerstaff (Harry Potter And The Chamber of Secrets), and Eddie Izzard (Valkyrie).

Gillies Mackinnon (Regeneration, Hideous Kinky) directed from Peter McDougall’s screenplay. Iain Maclean »

But things could have been very, very different…

Spoilers lie ahead for the Harry Potter series.

1. What if Harry Potter had never been published?

It’s been well-documented that J K Rowling struggled to get her first book published.

Almost a dozen houses, including Penguin, TransWorld and Harper Collins, rejected Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone outright.

When a first chapter arrived at Bloomsbury Publishing, it was destined to remain in the slush pile until its curious black binding caught the eye of a lowly assistant. On a whim, »
