It’s Friday! You know what that means? Time for a double shot of Wicker-based madness! First up, the great Christopher Lee in the latest clip from the upcoming film The Wicker Tree and then… well, then we have some chicken fried gold for ya!
Look for The Wicker Tree (review here), written and directed by Robin Hardy, in theatres on January 27th, 2012, courtesy of Anchor Bay Films.
Graham McTavish (The Hobbit), Jacqueline Leonard, Honeysuckle Weeks, Clive Russell, and Christopher Lee (the original The Wicker Man) star.
In THE WICKER TREE, two young missionaries from Texas (Brittania Nicol, Henry Garrett) head to Scotland to educate the Scottish heathens in the way of Christ. They are initially charmed by the locals in the town of Tressock and agree to become the local Queen of the May and Laddie for the annual town festival. But the couple are not prepared for the frightening consequences of their decision and the very disturbing secrets they are about to discover about Tressock’s seemingly friendly townspeople.
In other Wicker related news… while promoting his new film Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, Dread Central favorite Nicolas Cage sat down with Empire Online and dropped this bombshell:
“I would like to hook up with one of the great Japanese filmmakers, like the master that made ‘Ringu,’ and take ‘The Wicker Man’ to Japan…except this time he’s a ghost.”
Yes, he was joking, but damn it, think of the hilarity! Speaking of which, what better time could there be than right now to once again revisit The Wicker Man remake’s greatest moments? Dig it!
