…a comedy feature film staring Benedict Cumberbatch
What is this? Anyone?
This was the very old blurb on it. It used to be called Last Rites.
Benedict Cumberbatch, Charlie Cox are attached to star in Where There’s A Will, an Ireland-set comedy to be directed by Maurice Phillips.
The film will also star British actress Jenna Harrison who played opposite Ben Whishaw in My Brother Tom.
Developed by actor Danny Midwinter, who is also producing, Where There’s A Will is about three brothers who go on the run to Ireland from the mob in London thinking they’ve inherited a pub, which turns out to be a funeral parlour.
The script has been written by Ian D Fleming, with the film’s director, Maurice Phillips, whose credits include the 1986 film The American Way with Dennis Hopper, as well as TV dramas Murphy’s Law and Auf Wiedersehen Pet, also co-writing.
“I’ve been working on this for five years, trying to get it off the ground and all of a sudden it’s falling into place,” Midwinter told Screen.
“Benedict read the script and said he loved it and thought it was so different to anything else he had seen,” added Midwinter, who describes the film as having “a feel of Waking Ned with the banter of The Quiet Man [the 1952 film with John Wayne].”
The film is already part financed with plans to shoot in Ireland in 2012.
Ha, it’s very old indeed! well at least before 2nd series of Sherlock. I was looking forward to it but had not heard anything further until today.
I thought they were just using big names to attract $$$… Ah well, who knows, it’s a complicated business.
high-res screencaps from this clip because…
I thought this was dead and buried for Benedict but now who knows …..
Latest synopsis for Phoenix
In PHOENIX, LEE, a reclusive architectural model-builder finds himself in the unlikeliest of places: in bed with a virtual stranger, SUE – a traveling nurse whose nomadic lifestyle keeps the disappointments of relationships at bay. They both suspect it will all end there. And yet 6 weeks later Sue shocks Lee by showing up with this news: despite the fact he said he physically couldn’t procreate, she is now pregnant and planning to terminate the pregnancy, but thought he should know. Lee has a simple but surprising request – to accompany her to the clinic. Sue is resistant to the idea, but demurs thinking there’s no way he’ll cross the country to Phoenix, Arizona to join her. She is wrong. Lee and Sue spend some intense hours in Arizona, starting in the Grand Canyon and ending explosively in the clinic. The two to return to their old lives. And though it would seem the damage done in Phoenix is irreparable, the two manage to find each other once again in New York where they grapple with the possibility of starting over – beginning first with getting the other’s last name and phone number…
I know it’s another low budget indie film but I kind of want to watch Benedict in this.
So Benedict is now in Oklahoma?
Oh i say, not seen this before! His facial hair looks particularly ginger in this too.
The magazine was on ebay once and cost a fortune! haha.

Cute if true but it is the Fail. I love the way he’s veering off to the right when he sees the paps. His taste in clothes is utter shit.
Can I burn his shoes?
Late last night I finally finished listening to all 39 hours of the audio version of Parade’s End. It’s a book of great complexity and beauty that is evocative, frustrating, insightful, heartbreaking, and filled with detail and mental digressions. Here are some of the plot details you didn’t get at the end of the BBC production which, after all, was only 5 hours long.:
- After the explosion, Christopher does not get sent home, he is forced to do something else that he hates: become a jailer in charge of moving German P.O.W.s.
- Shortly after Christopher arrives home Mark gets pneumonia. Christopher sits up for many nights reading to his brother from Boswell’s The Life of Samuel Johnson.
- Christopher arranges for Mark to marry his long-term lover Marie-Leonie.
- Mark has a stroke and thereafter chooses to act as if he is paralyzed and mute. (Perhaps he really is—we never know for sure.)
- Christopher, Valentine, Mark and Marie-Leonie move to a big old house in the country (although Mark resides under an open-walled thatched canopy in the garden).
- Christopher runs the farm and does a big business selling antiques to Americans.
- Valentine helps Christopher buy and sell antiques. She is joyfully pregnant but worries about money.
- Marie-Leonie is a fine gardener, cider maker and housekeeper. She and Valentine also develop an odd, respectful friendship.
- Sylvia lets Groby to a rich American.
- Christopher’s son Michael, who is 18 and now (much to his mother’s chagrin) calls himself by his “papist” confirmation name Mark, arrives at the couples’ farm with the tenant & his mother in tow. Ostensibly they’re there to get his Uncle Mark’s permission to cut down Groby Great Tree. We learn that it has already been taken down.
- Mark sees his younger brother’s mannerisms in his nephew and determines that he (Michael) is indeed Christopher and Sylvia’s son; he is the rightful heir to Groby.
- Young Michael/Mark has turned into a good man (despite his mother’s influence). He views the surprise visit to his father’s house as “bad form.”
- Sylvia is accused by one of Christopher’s loyal servants of trying to kill the unborn baby by upsetting Valentine. She remembers the words of Father Consett and feels a modicum of shame, remorse and fear for her eternal soul.
- Sylvia lets go. She is even kind to Valentine.
- Sylvia sends a message to the dying Mark saying she will file for divorce so Christopher can make Valentine Mrs. Teitjens.
- (Her plan is to go to India as the wife of Major Campion.)
- Mark surprises Valentine by speaking his last words to her. He assures her that all will be well.
