First Image From the Set of The Legend of Barney ThomsonActor Robert Carlyle is making his directorial debut on the new horror comedy The Legend of Barney Thomson (formerly The Long Midnight of Barney Thomson), and we have the first image from the set for you. Check it out!

Myriad Pictures announced Tuesday that principal photography has begun in the UK on the darkly humorous film which will star two-time Academy Award winner Emma Thompson (Saving Mr. Banks, Sense and Sensibility), Ray Winstone (Snow White and the Huntsman, The Departed, Hugo), and Carlyle, who will also play the title role.

The script is based on a widely popular series of novels by Douglas Lindsay and was adapted for the screen by BAFTA award-winner Colin McLaren (Donkeys) and Richard Cowan. Myriad Pictures is handling worldwide sales on the film.

In The Legend of Barney Thomson, Carlyle plays the title character, a downtrodden Glaswegian barber who inadvertently stumbles into serial murder, with both absurd and macabre consequences. Complicating matters further, Barney’s formidable mother Cemolina (Thompson) cheerfully emasculates him at every turn, causing a bloody and comedic chain of events. While Barney clumsily tries to cover his tracks, Glasgow police inspector Holdall (Winstone) fights his own battles within his inept homicide department as he tries to solve the crime of the century. A black comedy of errors unfolds as the police try to capture the murderer at large.

Additional cast members include Brian Pettifer (Vanity Fair, Donkeys, Amadeus), Sir Tom Courtney (Quartet, The Golden Compass), Martin Compston (Filth, The Disappearance of Alice Creed), James Cosmo (Braveheart, The Chronicles of Narnia, Trainspotting), Ashley Jensen (The Lobster, How to Train Your Dragon), as well as Kevin Guthrie (Sunshine on Leith) and Stephen McCole (Rushmore, The Acid House).

Academy Award winning prosthetic makeup designer Mark Coulier (Harry Potter franchise, The Iron Lady, X Men First Class) provides the prosthetic makeup; Fabian Wagner (TV’s “Sherlock,” “Game of Thrones,” Frankenstein) serves as the director of photography on the film, and Ross Dempster (art director of Godzilla, 50/50, and 2012) is the project’s production designer.

The Legend of Barney Thomson is currently shooting in and around the Glasgow area.

Night of the Living Dead 4K and The Silence of the Lambs Come to the Criterion Collection

Published

on

It’s been a long time coming for these two classics, especially Night of the Living Dead after the ridiculously bad transfer put out by Mill Creek Entertainment, whose transfer was supposedly remastered from a new 2K scan. I swear I thought it was some kind of a joke when I first put it on to watch. In any event…

IndieWire is reporting that horror classics Night of the Living Dead and The Silence of the Lambs will be added to the 2018 Criterion Collection, a hallmark label for home video cinephiles.

According to the site, Criterion will release a new 4K digital restoration of The Silence of the Lambs, which has been approved by the movie’s cinematographer Tak Fujimoto. Included on the DVD and Blu-ray sets are 35 minutes of deleted scenes and audio commentary from 1994 featuring the late Jonathan Demme (director), stars Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins, screenwriter Ted Tally, and former FBI agent John Douglas.

Night of the Living Dead will also be released in 4K with never-before-seen 16mm dailies included as a bonus feature(!).

These will be added in February of 2018 so make sure you save up some cash after the holidays!

Kevin Bacon Lets Us Know the Tremors Reboot Pilot Has Wrapped Filming

Published

on

Two weeks ago we let you guys know that Tremors mainstay Michael Gross, aka Burt Gummer, was, unfortunately, not asked to be a part of the upcoming Syfy reboot series starring Kevin Bacon.

While that news upsets us a bit, being that the series has only filmed its pilot episode, we feel that there is still a big chance we could see Burt return to kick some more Graboids in the tentacle-thingies with elephant guns.

Fingers crossed.

Speaking of the “Tremors Syfy pilot, recently star Kevin Bacon took to Instagram to let us all know that filming has wrapped!

You can check out The Bacon’s post below and then make sure to hit us up and let us know how excited you are for Syfy’s “Tremors” series in the comments below!

In the Tremors follow-up, written by Andrew Miller, the killer Graboid worms that nearly destroyed Perfection, NV, 25 years ago are back; and the town’s only hope for survival is Valentine McKee (Bacon), who beat them once. But to do it again he’ll have to overcome age, alcohol, and a delusional hero complex.

“Tremors” the TV series is headed our way courtesy of Jason Blum’s Blumhouse TV and Universal Cable Prods.

We’ll let you know when we hear more about the series!

So long to NM. Had an amazing time shooting this pilot. Hope I can keep walking in these boots #Tremors
