A film we first heard about toward the end of last year, Gary Meyer’s The Winedancers, is now edited and ready for its finishing touches so the production team has unveiled the first official trailer. Check it out, and look for more soon.
The international cast includes Lucinda Rhodes, Kim Sønderholm, Kasia Koleczek, Miglen Mirtchev, Edmund Digby-Jones, Kyle Calderwood, Mariana Peñalva, J.C. Montes-Roldan, Antoine Martin, Andrea Catozzi, Jonathan Christopher Duncan, Marina De Salis, and Callie Roberts.
Writer/director/producer Meyer describes the film as “a mixture of horror comedy and theatre, a roller coaster of emotions. For some reason I came up with a transvestite cowboy line dancer as the main character wearing stiletto heals and tapping to the beat of ‘Cotton-Eye Joe’… The inspiration: Robin Hardy’s The Wicker Man, Tony Scott’s The Hunger, and life here in Provence with its deep-rooted French way of life resisting change as much as it can from the outside world. The wine, the vineyards, and the Pagan-like festivals… the French love of dancing. Line dancing, it seems inherent. It is so beautiful here that one can only get inspired, but just below the surface of this beauty lies greed, corruption, and the unseeing innocent victims who are lured here by its magic; it’s a magnet for it. The Winedancers is this story hosted by the Greek gods Pan and Bacchus, not to mention a glass or two of wine.”
A release is expected later this year.
The Winedancers is about several groups of people coming together and meeting up at a wine cheateu in the South of France. Before long a lot of very peculiar incidents start taking place: odd Pagan rituals, chateau hosts very far from the ordinary, people slowly going off the deep end one by one, and most importantly, bloody murder – VERY bloody murder, in fact! It offers real suspense akin to a classic game of whodunit with a lot of twists and turns.
