Rupert Everett to film Lead Heads
Production is due to get underway in London this week on Lead Heads, starring Rupert Everett, Derek Jacobi and Tom Felton.
Giles Borg directs the film from a screenplay by Patrick Makin. The film is described as being “about greed and the repercussions it has on the soul”. Luke Newberry, Olatunji Ayofe and Mark Williams are also among the cast.
The story centres on a group of men who, although strangers, are drawn together in their shared, greedy desperation to play a game that may cost them their lives…
Meyers Media Group is the production company; the producers are Lawrence Steven Meyers, Randy Dannenberg and John Evangelides.
Everett is also listed among the cast of My Policeman, an Amazon feature based on Bethan Roberts’ novel set in Brighton, due to begin filming soon.
