 Sothcott Production of
A Stephen Reynolds Film
Josef Altin, Roxanne McKee, Alistair Petrie, Nick Nevern, Bruce Payne,
Emma Samms, Tony Denham, Simona Bhrlikova
with Ricci Harnett and Vincent Regan
Produced by Jonathan Sothcott
Written & Directed by Stephen Reynolds
Production begins on VENDETTA
Principal photography has begun in London on Richwater Films’ Vendetta starring Danny Dyer.
Produced by Jonathan Sothcott (White Collar Hooligan, Fall Of The Essex Boys) and written and directed byStephen Reynolds (The Fall Of The Essex Boys) Vendetta is a hard-hitting vigilante action thriller set in a world where the only response to incomprehensible violence is an ‘eye for an eye’.
Dyer features as a former SAS soldier and interrogation officer Jimmy Vickers, who uses his combat skills to track down a feral gang who have brutally murdered his parents in a terrifying home invasion. With police closing in and his old unit on his trail, he has to evade capture long enough to complete his gruesome crusade.
Vendetta marks a return to form for Dyer, who is best known for his starring roles in movies such as The Football Factory, The Business and Outlaw.
Producer Jonathan Sothcott explained “audiences love Danny, he’s kind of like a 21st Century Michael Caine for my generation, but they love seeing him in a certain type of film and that’s something gritty, urban and violent. We felt it was about time for a really tough vigilante movie in the style of ‘Death Wish’ and ‘Harry Brown’ and Danny was the only choice. London can be a horrible place these days, with gangs of lads running riot, and lives are affected on a daily basis. I think anyone who has been wronged and not seen traditional justice has thought about taking the law into their own hands, even if it was just for a second. Imagine if a crack SAS soldier with all the associated skills that go with that decided to take revenge. It’s a terrifying prospect but it will make a great movie.”
Vendetta also stars Vincent Regan (Clash of the Titans), Bruce Payne (Passenger 57), Roxanne Mckee (Game of Thrones), Josef Altin (Game of Thrones), Nick Nevern (The Sweeney), Emma Samms and Tamaryn Payne.

Coming Soon: Rob Zombie's Lords of Salem

The Lords of Salem
Opens in UK cinemas 19 Apr 2013

From the producers of “Paranormal Activity” and “Insidious” comes writer-director Rob Zombie’s most highly anticipated shocker to date – a brilliantly envisioned and haunting tale of witchcraft and Satanism.

What's it all about?
A former drug user, Heidi is now clean and works as a rock DJ at the local radio station along with fellow DJs, Herman Whitey Salvador and Herman Jackson. Following one of their regular evening shows, Heidi receives a square wooden box containing a vinyl record, the only indication as to its origin is a note proclaiming “A gift from the Lords”. Assuming it is merely a PR stunt by an ambitious band, Heidi gives the record a spin and immediately begins to experience bizarre flashbacks to a past, long-forgotten trauma triggered by the haunting sounds contained on the record.

What does Fangoria say about it?
“A psychological horror treat that burrows into the brain and tickles with ideas. This is satanic horror done right, carefully twisting the knife until the big finale without sacrificing scares along the way.”

News Story: Bieber Bashed by Barnsley

In shock news last week, (http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/showbiz/news/a461682/justin-bieber-wears-gas-mask-out-and-about-in-london-pictures.html) Justin Bieber was accused of copying what was a soon to be revealed secret costume element of the world famous Marillion fan group "The Parrotheads". Andreas Barnsley Woodrow accused Bieber of stealing the idea and then flaunting it all over London. The gas mask look was due to be part of a surprise costume idea to celebrate the Marillion album, Radiation, or R10, to 30,000 fans (including those sneaking in) in Holland this coming weekend.
Woodrow is no stranger to controversy. He has been accused of stealing costume ideas before. Brent Smithers, well renowned English/Scottish/Irish/Italian/Actually we really don't quite know where he's from, writer for "I C U" security magazine and Twitter acount, had this to say:

"It wouldn't surprise me if Woodrow nicked this off Bieber. Woodrow stole my idea of bringing inflatables to gigs years ago. I like to wave an inflatable Strat in the air at gigs, so does he. But he always has to go one better."

Woodrow is currently hiding out ahead of this weekend's Marillion gathering, citing that he will not be drinking and will be keeping a "low profile".
Meanwhile, Bieber who is President of the Making Sure Music is Mundane group is upset that his birthday didn't go according to plan. Close friends said that they didn't know who Corey Haim was. How were they to know that Bieber was going in Fancy Dress?
