Lysette Anthony and Black & Blue Films Whisper to the Dead in the UK
There are certain things you may wanna rethink screwing around with. Namely, ways to contact the dead. We, like many don't believe that something made by Parker Bros. could be used as a conduit to the other side but we've seen enough movies to know not to test the boundaries. Then there's the EVP phenomenon. Yeah, that's about to go horribly awry in the latest UK fright fest, Whisper.
From the Press Release
Leading UK indie Black & Blue Films has teamed up with actress Lysette Anthony (pictured below) to co-produce supernatural thriller WHISPER, the first picture from her new company PerfectFeatures.
WHISPER, which goes into production in September 2011 on locations in the UK, explores the nature of grief and the terrifying consequences of experimenting with Electronic Voice Phenomena to talk to the dead.
It will be helmed by Terence Gross, the award-winning director of Hotel Splendide. The cast will be announced shortly.
Jonathan Sothcott, Black & Blue’s MD said today: "We are delighted to be partnering with Lysette and her business partner Rachel Chatterjee for Whisper. They have identified and secured a genuinely excellent project that we are looking forward to bringing to the screen and we're thrilled that they chose Black and Blue to help them with their feature debut. Lysette has been one of my favourite actresses for a long time and I'm especially thrilled that she's going to be working with us."
Lysette Anthony added: “To be honest Rachel and I are a little overwhelmed. To have Black & Blue green-light us with the ink barely dry on our latest ‘Whisper’ draft is, well, the stuff of movies. We’re honoured to be making our first film with them.”
