BBC Films: who’s in the running for the top job?

14 February 2017 11:00 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Screen considers potential runners and riders.

The BBC is likely to announce its new head of film within the next two weeks, according to sources close to the process.

Scroll down for potential candidates and the original job spec

That timetable should come as a relief to those under consideration for the role and to wider industry who will want to begin building or growing their relationship with the new boss.

The job, which is considered one of the UK’s most prestigious posts, became vacant in autumn 2016 following the departure of long-time chief Christine Langan. BBC Films veteran Joe Oppenheimer has been serving as acting head of film since then.

The incoming head of film is expected to have an annual war chest of around £12m for production, cementing BBC Films’ position as one the three mainstays of public funding in the UK along with the BFI and Film4.

Review: The Take, Terrorism As Background for a Buddy Action Movie

6 February 2017 9:00 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

British filmmaker James Watkins previously helmed Eden Lake and The Woman in Black, horror thrillers that may not have been completely successful but were certainly above average accomplishments. So the idea of him directing a straight action flick sounded intriguing. Originally known as Bastille Day and now titled The Take, the movie stars Idris Elba and Richard Madden as a mismatched pair of rogue operatives who are thrown together to solve a pressing anti-terrorist mission. It feels like a modern British take on the 80s American buddy-cop action movie, especially in its usage of terrorist activity as a cover for a big robbery.

Theatre Review: Gaslight (UK Tour)

Gaslight theatre review (UK tour): Should a wife always believe what she is told is true?

Gaslight theatre review, Katey Thompson.

Kara Tointon skilfully depicts Bella Manningham, a fragile, nervous lady who is prone to always accepting what her husband says. Jack Manningham, who is played by Rupert Young is her domineering husband. The production plays out in the drawing room of their home, where items are constantly being moved and misplaced. Jack Manningham always notices that this has all occurred, and accuses his wife of moving them as the trinkets are often found by him in the bottom of her sewing basket. This causes Bella to start to doubt her own recollection of events and whether she has or has not moved them. Jack Manngingham’s controlling behaviour becomes more apparent throughout the play, and he even appears to be little psychotic at times, and he uses his »

Hammer Films, Motion Picture Capital team for movie fund

12 January 2017 2:08 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The Hammer Films Eis Fund will back film and TV projects.

UK financier Motion Picture Capital, the Reliance Entertainment Group subsidiary, has formed a partnership with iconic UK production company Hammer Films.

The two companies are teaming on a new film fund called The Hammer Films Eis Fund which will offer private investors the opportunity to invest in a slate of Hammer branded film and TV productions.

The new fund will sit alongside Motion Picture Capital’s existing Eis fund and will only be accessible through a financial adviser.

Iconic horror label Hammer, best known for gothic horror films of the 1950’s including The Curse of Frankenstein, The Mummy and Christopher Lee’s Dracula, made a splash in 2012 with UK horror The Woman In Black, starring Daniel Radcliffe, which became the highest-grossing British horror film on record, taking £21.3m in its home territory and going on to gross over $130m worldwide.

2014 productions included »
