It’s awesome to see Rutger Hauer getting so much work lately. To say that his presence has been missed from the screen over the last several years is a bit of an understatement. Thankfully the man is back and is as badass as ever!
Principal photography began on March 30th in South Wales on Burn Hand Film Productions’ feature film The Reverend, based on the graphic novel of the same name. Directed by writer Neil Jones, the flick stars Rutger Hauer (Hobo With a Shotgun, The Hitcher), Stuart Brennan (Risen), Tamer Hassan (Clash of the Titans), Doug Bradley (Hellraiser), Emily Booth (Doghouse, Evil Aliens) and Giovanni Lombardo Radice (Cannibal Ferox, The Omen).
Fresh from seminary school a new Reverend embarks on his first parish. A small, low maintenance chapel based in the quiet idyllic setting of a quiet country village. While on the surface the village seems to be a peaceful parish, with perfect residents, soon it becomes apparent that something more sinister lurks beneath the façade of a local businessman. On a wet, cold night a mysterious girl visits the Reverend at the chapel. Cold and upset she is welcomed in warmly; soon it becomes apparent that her visit is not for sanctuary but to deliver a message, a message in the form of a deep, bloody bite… Awoken with an unknown, uncontrollable thirst, a confused Reverend can find no evidence of the girl from the night before. With nothing but the thirst and memory of the bite, the Reverend embarks on his mandate, to clean up the village and the neighbouring estate, by preaching or feasting.
