Conrad Vernon to Direct Re-Imagining of The Toxic Avenger

the-toxic-avenger

Bizarre, but mighty intriguing news today comes with the announcement that Conrad Vernon is to direct a re-imagining of the 1984 B-movie The Toxic Avenger. Who’s been crying out for this I wonder? The remake will be Vernon’s first live-action endeavour and, most recently, he co-directed Sausage Party. The Toxic Avenger has plenty of room for cartoonish madness, so his experience in animation will certainly come in handy.

The Inside Story Of The Comedian’s Guide To Survival

James dying at a corporate gig

2014+by+Mark+HemmingsdThe co-writer and subject of next year’s biggest British comedy movie biopic tells all on how his new movie starring James Buckley, Kevin Eldon, Gilbert Gottfried and Jimmy Carr came to be.

When my school friend Mark Murphy and I began writing a screenplay four years ago about my early years as a stand up comic, neither of us could have imagined it would become a £3.5m feature film starring some of the comedians we watched and loved as children (such as Kevin “Weak lemon drink” Eldon and Paul “Dennis Pennis” Kaye). At school Mark and I bonded over our love of movies and British comedy shows. Conan The Barbarian was our favourite. True Romance and Groundhog Day were watched so frequently that it was like, well Groundhog Day. When we left school in 1997 we lost touch but reunited a decade later in a pub in Knightsbridge. He had become a filmmaker, I had become a magazine journalist writing film reviews and doing stand up at night. We wanted to combine our collective interests (I am loathe to call them talents at this point!) and work on a project together. This became the world’s first funny film review show – Movie Kingdom. Months of seven-day weeks and twenty-hour days went into producing this labour of love for very little, if any, money. The show was very low budget and we pumped the pennies we made from it back into it to fulfil our vision. While it looked cheap I am still enormously proud of the show because we did well with what we had and most importantly it was funny. Funny enough that the likes of Tom Cruise, George Clooney, Terry Gilliam and Daniel Craig appeared in it. It also caught the attention of the head of commissioning at Comedy Central, Sarah Farrell. (See highlights of the show below)

She liked what we saw and commissioned us to make a web series for Comedy Central that consisted of me interviewing my favourite comedians which was obviously a dream come true. Jerry Seinfeld, Amy Schumer, Jim Jefferies, Greg Davies and many more all appeared in the show. But Mark always thought it was hilarious that after a day of chatting with Jackie Mason or Judd Apatow about the secrets of stand up that I would jump in my car and drive for three hours to die on stage in front of five people. So he conceived the script idea that became The Comedian’s Guide To Survival about James Mullinger, a magazine journalist who is struggling to balance his day job and his wife and children with his desire to become a successful stand up comedian. An underdog story about following your dreams, over a month ago we finished shooting the movie and it has surpassed our own wildest dreams.

James Buckley signed on to play the lead character after reading the script. He loved it and related somewhat to the character – a man who wants the best for his family but is equally devoted to the art of comedy even though he is obviously already the star of the biggest comedy film in England of all time. Buckley and I didn’t meet until the first day of shooting in Montreal. We shot a scene together (I have a small part in the film as a character named Brad Macey who is a British stand up gone to Hollywood and become a bit of a dick. No it’s not based on Russell Brand. Much.) and then James did a scene with Jimmy Carr who plays himself in the film. Buckley wisely chose not to try and emulate me or any of my mannerisms. At the risk of sounding like Simon Cowell, he has made the character his own. And good thing too because obviously the character needs to be likeable and I don’t think my real life paranoia, insecurities or nervousness would play well on screen.

Watching Buckley work is a joy. Obviously, like most people, I was a fan of “The Inbetweeners” but this character is nothing like Jay. Although I must admit I was a bit like Jay as a teenager. Buckley’s last film before Comedian’s Guide was with Judd Apatow, Sarah Silverman and Andy Samberg in Hollywood so his improvisation skills are spectacular right now. I have never laughed so much as when he was shooting scenes of the character interviewing the best comedians in the world – Omid Djalili, Pete Zedlacher, Mike Ward, Brendon Burns, Mike Wilmot, Derek Seguin, Gina Yashere. With their riffing skills honed on the stand up circuit over decades and Buckley’s from film sets with Apatow, these scenes are some of the funniest in the film. This was especially surreal for me because we shot these scenes in the same hotel in Montreal that Mark (the writer and director) and I did the real interviews with these comedians four years ago. So to see an actor I greatly admire sit in the same chair I was in four years ago, ask the same stupid questions I was asking felt like I was in an alternative universe.

After filming in Montreal for a week we shot in England for almost five weeks. I live in Canada now (in real life I followed my dream and gave up the day job and became a full time comedian – as to whether that happens for the character, well, you will have to watch the film) so I flew over to watch this huge production unfold pinching myself every few minutes. The scope and scale of the script was large in that the character goes on a journey across the world to discover the secret to survival in stand up so it was great that Alan Latham of GSP Studios was able to secure such a good budget so that none of the travel or high concept comedic set pieces had to be compromised. It also helped us secure an all-star cast including MyAnna Buring, Paul Kaye (who plays James’ Editor), Mark Heap, Gilbert Gottfried, Tim McInnerny as well as comedians we loved over as kids including Norman Pace and Kevin Eldon and my personal favourite stand comedian on the British circuit right now – Carly Smallman.

Another surreal and beautiful moment was watching a scene about the beloved comedian’s car share. The long drive to and from gigs is when friendships are made and lost. Probably my favourite scene in the film re-enacts a car journey and alongside Buckley are three of my favourite comedians to work with – Luisa Omielan, Maff Brown and Richard Sandling. We all started out around the same time and have bonded over many a long car journey. Seeing them all together in a car bickering, bonding and munching on scotch eggs was magical.

James dying at a corporate gig

The most bizarre thing for me was watching Buckley perform my stand up.  All of his live performances in the film use my real material. Of course it’s hard to watch your own act being used for scenes in which the character dies on stage and gets booed off but that’s the reality of stand up and we wanted this film to be real. Of course it is a movie and is supposed to be fun but we were determined to make it authentic. I want comedians to watch it and recognise what is happening on screen. Too often when films are set in a particular environment, they don’t resemble what it’s really like to work in that profession. I would like to think that – with a bit of artistic licence – for the most part this is the reality of life for a stand up on the bottom rung of the ladder. Worryingly I think he delivers some of the gags better than I do.

All of the awful things that happen to the character at corporate gigs happened to me. Almost word for word. Such as the time I arrived to do a Christmas gig for an insurance company in Burnley and was told that there was no free bar because the boss decided to spend the money on the comedian instead. They quite rightly hated me. I hated me. I was the reason there was no free booze. That is unforgiveable. It was such a horrible night I could barely bear to watch the scene being filmed.

Ultimately it has been the most fulfilling experience of my career. Of course there is a downside and that is that the synopsis for the film that is all over the Internet begins with the words “Failed comic James Mullinger…”. That is going to make it very tricky to get work from now on if people decide to Google my name before booking me. That is the downside of having a biopic made of yourself when you aren’t a household name. The beauty of stand up though is that you get booked on how well you do on stage. It is a very honest profession in that sense. Not much else can harm you if you are delivering the laughs in the clubs. I have been already asked if there could be a sequel. Well, given I left London and moved to a beautifully and comparatively quiet place in Canada called Saint John, New Brunswick (which I adore and will never leave) and against all the odds my career took off there, quite possibly. That could easily be the plot for a second underdog story as the character starts all over again. As my wife often tells me in real life and in the film though; one thing at a time.

TheyLookLikePeople

celluloid screams

Yorkshire’s premiere horror festival, Celluloid Screams, returns for its seventh year to take over Sheffield’s Showroom Cinema 23rd through to the 25th October to featuring some of the hottest genre features from around the world and some incredible films from today’s new emerging talent.

Karan Kusama’s expertly-crafted thriller THE INVITATION will open the festival and invite audiences to experience a dinner party like no other. The Invitation stars Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones), Logan Marshall-Green (Prometheus), John Caroll Lynch (Shutter Island) and promises to be an unrelenting experience. Closing the festival in style, with a 40th Anniversary screening of Dario Argento’s DEEP RED, is this years’ guests of honour Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin who will rescore the film in an extra special live performances followed by a selection of tracks from Goblin and Claudio Simonetti’s extensive back catalogue.

Once again this year, Celluloid Screams is offering festival goers a whole host of solid genre choices including work from new emerging talent. Severin Flala and Veronika Franz will be sending icy chills down spines with their breakout genre film GOODNIGHT MOMMY. Then it will be time to go east to witness the worlds of Japanese gangsters and bloodsucking vampires collide in Takashi Miike’s manic action horror YAKUZA APOCALYPSE.

Audiences should prepare themselves for THEY LOOK LIKE PEOPLE, the magnificent debut feature from director Perry Blackshear. Emotionally-charged and intricately-crafted, Blackshear’s apocalyptic thriller is a thoughtful exploration of love, loyalty and living nightmares. Rock legend Henry Rollins delivers a career defining performance in Jason Krawczyk’s dramatic thriller HE NEVER DIED and Patrick Kennelly’s EXCESS FLESH casts a scathing look at the LA Fashion scene.

The festival lineup also includes productions such as THESE FINAL HOURS, a devastating yet intimate depiction of the end of the world from director Zak Hilditch; Robert Eggars takes audiences back to New England to embrace an icy cold thriller about witchcraft and black magic with THE WITCH; EMELIE, a story where three children are left in the care of a babysitter whose behaviour becomes increasingly strange as the night goes on; and THE CORPSE OF ANNA FRITZ, a shocking tale that delves into our relentless obsession with celebrity.

Rounding up this years features is Jason Lei Howden’s DEATHGASM, a thrilling gore-soaked joyride into the depths of hell. Forging horror and heavy metal, Deathgasm combines the old-school practical gore fx of Sam Raimi and Peter Jackson with a deafening heavy metal soundtrack that demands audiences to throwing up their devil horns or risk bodily dismemberment.

The SHORT FILM RETROSPECTIVE returns this year with a twist as Celluloid Screams, after delving deep into the archives of the UK government’s Central Office, have curated a collection of films to celebrate the public information films that terrified a generation during the 1970s and 1980s. Also returning for it’s third year is the annual Celluloid Screams ALLNIGHTER which this year will see special presentations of A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, PHANTASM, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2 and RE-ANIMATOR.

Lastly, team Celluloid Screams have kept one spot on the line up free for their annual SECRET FILM which will not be revealed until the very moment it is about to begin. Last year it was ASMODEXIA and the year before that was ALMOST HUMAN from director Joe Begos. This generates a real buzz amongst festival goers and never fails to strike a chord with the audience.

Celluloid Screams will also be showing an amazing collection of shorts that will feature during the festival. The shorts include Andy Stewart’s latest offering REMNANT; The Woman’s Pollyanna McIntosh stars in Melanie Light’s shocking tale THE HERD; HEIR, by Richard Powell; the goretastic CROW HAND!!!; EL GIGANTE, a short about a cannibalistic luchador who brutalizes his victims in the ring then slaughters them for meat; Fredrick S. Hana returns to Celluloid Screams with SISTER HELL, his hotly anticipated follow up to last year’s Autumn Harvest.

With seventeen features, twenty-four shorts a bunch of guests and one hell of a closing ceremony, team Celluloid Screams have put on a belter of a year for festival goers. For further details about the festival visit the official Celluloid Screams website here.

In the meantime we’ll leave you with the official trailer for the festival:

The First Grimmfest 2015 Films Revealed!

heneverdied

Team Grimmfest have been busy building what is said to be their best festival line up yet and their first film announcement has certainly warmed our cold hearts as the first three films have been announced. Featuring three very different UK Premieres, Grimmfest have searched around the globe at such festivals as Sundance, SXSW and Fantasia International Fantastic Film Festival to ensure this years festival attendees will see some of the very best of horror and fantasy.

The first film comes from the creators of The SignalSYNCHRONICITY is a mind-bending ‘Sci-fi Noir’ in the tradition of Dark CityBlade Runner, and Alphaville starring Chad McKnightMichael Ironside and Brianne Davis.  The film follows physicist Jim Beale just as he invents a machine that can fold space-time, suddenly a rare Dahlia appears from the future. He must now find the flower’s identical match in the present to prove his machine works. Jim soon discovers that the Dahlia lies in the hands of a mysterious girl, who seduces him into revealing his secrets. Convinced that he’s fallen prey to a femme fatale trying to steal his invention, Jim travels back in time to stop her betrayal before it happens. But once in the past, Jim uncovers a surprising truth about the machine, the girl, and his own reality.

EXCESS FLESH is the new shocking body horror from writer and director Patrick Kennelly. The film centres around Jill who is obsessed with her new roommate Jennifer, a promiscuous and sexy hotshot in the LA Fashion scene. New to the city and recently single, Jill is unable to keep up as she binges and purges to stay thin; eventually hating herself and everyone around her. Her jealousy and rage spiral out of control — Jennifer has everything, and Jill wants to be just like her. If Jill can’t BE Jennifer, she must destroy her.

Finally the third film is the fantastic HE NEVER DIED, the new brutal vampire horror film starring punk legend Henry RollinsStephen Ogg and Booboo Stewart. He Never Died follows Jack, Jack in a rut. Depression and severe anti-social behavior has whittled down his existence to sleeping and watching television. Seeing the human race as little more than meat with a pulse, Jack has no interest to bond with anyone. There’s little purpose for him to make friends with someone he’d eventually eat or outlive by more than a millennia. The fuse is lit when Jack’s past comes back to rattle him. Jack must now walk a tight rope of sobriety and try to eat as few people as possible in this violent tale of personal responsibility.

We’re already excited for what’s to come and we look forward to the festival when it takes over the Odeon Printworks in Manchester between 1st and 4th October where there will be at least 20 feature film premieres and a plethora of the best new genre shorts from around the globe. We have a feeling it’s going to be bloody fantastic and it will be a shame if you were to miss out!

Graham Humphrey’s stunning artwork for Film4 FrightFest 2015

FF 2015 – poster artwork – WEB-1

This years hotly anticipated Film4 Frightfest is on the horizon sending festival attendees into a frenzy. The event itself will be taking place the Vue Cinema, Leicester Square between Thursday 27th and Monday August 31st and will be using six screens at the VUE, West End (which is one more than last year).

Those lucky enough to attend can expect to see north of 80 films and events in the programme. A festival pass this year will cost £185. Day passes are priced at £30.00 for Thursday, £60.00 for Friday and Saturday and both Sunday and Monday will cost £50 each. Single tickets this year will be £13.25. Interestingly there will be no famous sleepy queue this year as all festival and day passes will be sold online on 4th July at 10am.

Meanwhile, Graham Humphrey‘s poster for this years festival has finally been revealed and we here at CINEMA CHORDS have fallen head over feet for it.

Graham explains: “While I was looking for a theme for this year’s poster, I ran with the idea of Magic. At a recent visit to the incredible Cinema Museum in Kennington (one of my favourite haunts) I was admiring their extensive collection, among which I noticed a number of Victorian ‘Magic Lanterns’.

This formed the basis of my concept, the idea of magical projection through one of these exotic devices. Running with the theme, I took the application of Aleister Crowley’s ‘Magik’ rituals and placed our regular FrightFest monster posed in the distinctive manner of one of the best known photographs of ‘The Beast’.

Using the projection device, a legion of demons is unleashed, surround by magical symbols. They – just as we will – are enjoying the shared spectacle generated by the satanic lamp.”

We’re excited for what’s to come and you can bet that we will be there in August to share every bloody moment with our fans! For more information about the festival please visit the official website here.

David Brent Repping & Rocking Into Cinemas in “Life on the Road”

Lide on the Road

david BrentJust when you thought it was safe to go back into the office, Wernham–Hogg paper merchants’ general manager David Brent (Ricky Gervais) is all set to rep ‘n’ rock his way onto the big screen in the Summer of 2016 in his very own film, Life on the Road.

In Life on the Road Brent has moved on in the world, making ends meet as a rep selling cleaning (and ladies personal hygiene) products. Nonetheless, having managed the band Texas, and collaborated with Oasis’ Noel Gallagher, it comes as no surprise that he still has aspirations to rock stardom in the form of fledgling rock band ‘Foregone Conclusion.’  He joins forces with a bunch of mercenary session musicians, a talented cohort (to inject a healthy dose of street cred) and an overpriced-yet-underwhelmed tour manager and goes about self-funding a full tour of the UK.

Commenting on the film, Ricky Gervais said, “I’m so excited that the world will see what David Brent is up to now and where his future lies. This film delves much more into his private life than The Office ever did and we really get to peel back the layers of this extraordinary, ordinary man.”

Gervais helms, writes, produces and stars in Life on the Road, which also features original music from the man himself, including the classics ‘Free Love Freeway’ and ‘Equality Street.’ This movie will do for every mid-level sales rep with a dream of becoming a rock god what the Rolling Stones did for rock ’n’ roll, allegedly.

Life on the Road is co-financed by Entertainment One and BBC Films and is slated for an August 2016 release.

In the meantime, we’ll leave you with the soon to be rep’n’roll star teaching you how to master the aptly titled track “Life on the Road.”

“People see me, and they see the suit, and they go: ‘you’re not fooling anyone’, they know I’m rock and roll through and through. But you know that old thing, live fast, die young? Not my way. Live fast, sure, live too bloody fast sometimes, but die young? Die old.” David Brent.
