Spain Welcomes a Surge of Foreign Shoots

When it comes to attracting foreign shoots in Spain, the motto could well be: “It’s the tax breaks, stupid.”

Of course, Spain has long been a foreign shoot locale: Think Samuel Bronston’s ’60s epics such as “El Cid.” International movies have always sought stunning locations, Mediterranean climate and low-cost labor. Since 2015, however, Spain has offered tax rebates for international shoots of up to 20%; 40% in the Canary Islands.

Tax credits are available to Spanish shoots and co-productions, reaching 25% in the Peninsula, 45% in the Canaries. Also, Navarre is dangling a 35% tax credit for local and international productions.

Benefits attract a wide range of projects. The biggest, among TV dramas, is “Game of Thrones,” which first lensed part of Season

Why Hollywood Won’t Cast This Harry Potter Actor Anymore

Almost everyone around loves the Harry Potter series, and has a soft spot for the actors that brought it to the big screen. The cast of the series were just kids when they started, but many of them used this as a jumping off point to long, successful Hollywood careers. Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson have both gone on to great things, but what about Rupert Grint? We’ll let you know why his career has tanked, and Hollywood doesn’t want anything to do with him. From some personal disasters to bit parts, we’ll take you through this rather depressing career. It seems like his career might finally be turning around, but don’t get too excited too soon. Let us know if you’re a fan of his latest ventures, Snatch and Sick Note, or if you prefer to remember Rupert as Ron Weasley and nothing else.

Guy Ritchie is Returning to His Lock, Stock and Snatch Roots With His New Film Toff Guys

Finally! Guy Ritchie is returning to his filmmaking roots with a new film project he's directing called Toff Guys! Ritchie launched his career with films like Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch. He went on to make big budget films that implemented his signature hyper high energy shooting style, like Sherlock Holmes, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., King Author: Legend of the Sword, and the upcoming Disney film Aladdin.

This next film of his is said to be "set at the intersection of Sexy Beast and Downton Abbey, and follows a very English drug lord attempting to cash out on his highly profitable empire by selling it off to a dynasty of Oklahoma billionaires." Insiders said it’s "about old money, new money, and show me the money."

I've been wondering if Ritchie would ever make a movie like his earlier films again, so it's awesome to see that he's actually doing it!

Guy Ritchie Returning To His Gritty Crime Roots With ‘Toff Guys’

Guy Ritchie Returning To His Gritty Crime Roots With ‘Toff Guys’
It appears that Guy Ritchie is done toying around with big-budget tentpole filmmaking for the time being.

After successfully launching the Robert Downey, Jr.-led “Sherlock Holmes” franchise, the British filmmaker went on to direct “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.,” “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword,” and the upcoming live-action Disney remake “Aladdin.” With the last decade filled with projects like that, it’s hard to believe that Ritchie is the same filmmaker that brought audiences “Snatch” and “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.”

Well, according to a new report, the director is done with those big franchises and wants to return to his roots with the film, “Toff Guys.”

According to Deadline, Guy Ritchie is lining up “Toff Guys” to be the next film he directs and judging by their synopsis of the film, it sounds like it could be a return-to-form from the director.

Guy Ritchie Returns to Gritty British Dramas with ‘Toff Guys’, His Next Directorial Effort

When you hear the name Guy Ritchie, you likely think of one of two types of films: There's the hyper-kinetic, beat-em-up action films like the Sherlock Holmes franchise, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Then there's the relatively more subtle, quirky, and focused British underworld dramas like Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch. Ritchie's latest film, news of which is about to be unleashed at next week's Cannes Festival, will be squarely in that latter trend as you might have guessed from …

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Thomas Alexander

It’s fair to say that Lennie James is no stranger to the small screen and his latest project, Save Me, proves his talents don’t solely lie in acting. The Sky Atlantic series sees James not only act but also write many of the episodes.

We catch up with Lennie James to talk about Save Me, working with Snatch co-stars again and the small matter of The Walking Dead.

HeyUGuys: Save Me is your first writing credit for a while – how did you first become involved in the project?

Lennie James: You know, there was a point where I thought I’d do much more writing than acting but circumstance meant acting got in the way of writing. Consequently, I’ve always got ideas bubbling around in my head so I write them to get them out of my head.
