Heartless to start filming 27 June 2008

Isle of Man Film’s next project Heartless, starts filming on the Island on Monday (30th June). Announced in Cannes this year, Heartless, which is currently filming in London, stars up and coming British Actor Jim Sturgess, most well known for his role in 21, Harry Potter actress Clemence Poesy and familiar British actor Timothy Spall .

Directed and written by Philip Ridley (The Passion of Darkly Noon), the contemporary Faust themed thriller centres on a young man (Jim Sturgess) who is tricked into a deal with a demon and then fights to save his soul.

Producer Richard Raymond said: “Heartless is a gleaming, seductive ride into the fantastic imagination of signature director Philip Ridley, who we are all so thrilled to see back behind the camera. The combination of Jim Sturgess and Clémence Poésy will be electric, in a story that touches upon strong contemporary themes and fears, which young audiences across the world will really connect with.”

The Minister for Trade and Industry Hon David Cretney MHK commented: “I am delighted to be welcoming this year’s third feature film to the Island. We all know that 2007 was a difficult year for the Island’s film industry and after a considerable amount of work by all at Isle of Man Film and all those involved in attracting films to the Island, we are thrilled to have the cameras rolling once again with Heartless.”

Heartless will be filming on the Island for three weeks from Monday 30th June.
