Glasgow Film Festival 2012: Writer Sally Phillips & Director Sheree Folkson discuss The Decoy Bride

Image
Co-writer/actor Sally Phillips (Smack the Pony) and director Sheree Folkson (A Royal Scandal) discuss their feature film The Decoy Bride, which was screened as part of the Great Scots strand at the Glasgow Film Festival 2012.
Bridget Jones meets Local Hero in this fizzy romantic confection that features a sparkling screwball comedy performance from Kelly Macdonald. Hollywood star Lara (Alice Eve) and her writer fiancé James (David Tennant) are desperate for a quiet romantic wedding far from the prying eyes of the paparazzi. The tiny Scottish island of Hegg seems ideal but the media are soon descending in their hordes. A cunning plan is devised to stage a fake wedding and throw them off the trail. Local lass Katie (Macdonald) is the decoy bride but nothing goes entirely as expected in an entertaining romp with echoes of I Know Where I'm Going.

And there's a fabulous commentary written by Sally over on the Shooting People blog which you can read here.

The ITV drama is three episodes long, set in Manchester and was written by Bill Gallagher, who adapted Lark Rise To Candleford for screens.

But now Adele is pregnant again and this time she is determined to have a natural birth: a brave decision considering Laurence’s cerebral palsy was caused by his own difficult birth and Adele’s CP affects her from the waist down. For six months we follow Laurence, Tom and Adele in a film that lays bare the joys… and hurdles… of disabled parenting.

Tree Fu Tom Promotional Photos

Image
Thanks to our pals over at Blogtor Who (we insist you visit their amazing site immediately by the way!) we have some great new promotional photos of David from his new Cbeebies project Tree Fu Tom.
The photos show David alongside Twigs, the character he is voicing in the show. Another shot shows David and his co star Sophie Aldred having a giggle in the recording studio.

Aimed at four to six year olds, Tree Fu Tom is set in an enchanted world where movement creates magic. Tom appears to be a normal eight-year-old boy but putting on his magic belt and performing a special sequence of magic action-movements (known as Tree Fu) transforms him into a tiny but mighty magical super-hero.
Using a Tree Fu spell, Tom is transported into a wondrous enchanted kingdom in a tree called Treetopolis, inhabited by sprites, bugs and naughty fungi – the ‘Mushas’. Here he meets his faithful sidekick Twigs, a silly and energetic Acorn Sprite.
Tom and Twigs are inseparable as they become embroiled in ama…

Double Awards Win For Much Ado About Nothing

Image
Much Ado About Nothing, the West End smash of last summer came away from the WhatsOnStage Awards tonight with a pair of awards. The play won Best Shakespearean Production and was also named the AKA Theatre Event Of The Year.

The awards were collected by the play's director Josie Rourke who praised David Tennant and Catherine Tate for having the idea to stage the play in the first place, thanked the company for performing so well together and most of all thanked the audiences throughout the summer for their unwavering enthusiasm and support. She stressed the importance of having a good quality cast and felt that it was very apt that they had received the Theatre Event Of The Year award as that is how they were made to feel during the entire run.

Catherine Tate also sent a thank you message from LA where she is currently filming for The Office.

Unfortunately David Tennant, who had been nominated as Best Actor In A Play in a very hotly contended category lost out to James Corden, sta…

Tree Fu Tom Interview

Image
Twigs is Tom’s best friend and sidekick – he goes everywhere with him and is the comic heart of the show. This tiny acorn sprite is like the wide-eyed, fun-loving, free-spirited and seriously silly child in each of us.


Could you tell us who you play?
I play Twigs, who is Tom’s best friend. Twigs lives in Treetopolis and he’s a tree sprite. He’s very small, he’s sort of based on an acorn and he can retract himself into an acorn whenever he’s frightened. But he’s a little anarchic, he’s a little crazy and he’s quite loud.

Could you sum up TFT and why parents should encourage their children to watch it?
I think TFT is imaginative, inventive, exciting, really good fun and it looks beautiful. It looks like no expense has been spared and I can’t wait to see all the finished episodes as everything I have seen so far has been a visual feast. It’s an incredible wonderful thing that we have channels like CBeebies that devote so much time and effort and skill to telling wonderful stories.

Love Virtually - BBC Press Release

Image
As we revealed yesterday David will be co starring with Emilia Fox in a new BBC Radio 4 dramatisation of Love Virtually.
The BBC Press Release follows:
Thursday 8 March 2.15-3.00pm BBC RADIO 4


Starring David Tennant and Emilia Fox, Love Virtually by Austrian novelist Daniel Glattauer is a thoroughly modern epistolary novel with one difference - its protagonists Emmi Rothner and Leo Leike communicate exclusively by email.

They 'meet' when Emmi mistakenly sends an email to Leo's inbox. A romance ensues that allows them to live out a shared secret life far removed from their day-to-day existences. The story asks to what extent the relationship relies on fantasy and escapism and whether it will it survive a real life meeting.
The problem is Emmi is married - but does a virtual affair ‘count’ as adultery?
The tale questions whether it’s possible to fall in love with someone you've never met - and explores the implications of anonymity in cyberspace.
Adapted by Eileen Horne.

New Radio 4 Project For David: Love Virtually

Image
David Tennant will record an adaptation of the Daniel Glattauer novel Love Virtually along with Emilia Fox for BBC Radio 4. The production will be broadcast as the Afternoon Play on Thursday 8th March at 2.15pm.

From the official Press Release:

Have you ever just clicked with someone . . . ?

It begins by chance: Leo receives emails in error from an unknown woman called Emmi. Being polite he replies, and Emmi writes back. A few brief exchanges are all it takes to spark a mutual interest in each other, and soon Emmi and Leo are sharing their innermost secrets and longings. The erotic tension simmers, and, despite Emmi being happily married it seems only a matter of time before they will meet in person. Will their feelings for each other survive the test of a real-life encounter?

And if so, what then?


Glattauer was born in Vienna and still lives and works in the city. Love Virtually sold over two million copies  in Germany. Reviews following the release of the English translation:

New Pirates! Trailer

Image
In The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists, Hugh Grant stars in his first animated role as the luxuriantly bearded Pirate Captain -- a boundlessly enthusiastic, if somewhat less-than-successful, terror of the High Seas. With a rag-tag crew at his side (Martin Freeman, Brendan Gleeson, Russell Tovey, and Ashley Jensen), and seemingly blind to the impossible odds stacked against him, the Captain has one dream: to beat his bitter rivals Black Bellamy (Jeremy Piven) and Cutlass Liz (Salma Hayek) to the much coveted Pirate Of The Year Award. It's a quest that takes our heroes from the shores of exotic Blood Island to the foggy streets of Victorian London. Along the way they do battle with the pirate-hating Queen Victoria (Imelda Staunton) and team up with a young Charles Darwin (David Tennant), but never lose sight of what a pirate loves best: adventure!
