Diana Vickers — X Factor UK alum, “Cinderella” songbird and the sugary-sweet chanteuse behind Songs From The Tainted Cherry Tree, as well as the criminally underrated Music To Make Boys Cry — is about to be in a psychological thriller…with light cannibalistic undertones.
From the press release:
BuGreen Screen Productions, in co-production with Solar Productions, is proud to announce that it is now in production on Mark Murphy’s second feature “Awaiting”, a psychological/thriller starring Tony Curran (Underworld: Evolution, Gladiator) and X Factor’s finalist Diana Vickers (Little Voice, Give Out Girls). Diana Vicker’s first UK movie began principle photography on the 22nd June and will continue for a period of four weeks in the studios and forests in Yorkshire.
Yes, but how about the film itself?
The plot follows Morris, (Tony Curran), a psychotic recluse with cannibalistic tendencies, whose life changes when his innocent daughter (Diana Vickers) rescues one of his victims and befriends him. Jake (Rupert Hill; Coronation Street) an ordinary businessman soon realises that he is stranded and his presence in the house gradually reveals unexpected and dark mysteries from the past.
Oh! “Cannibalistic tendencies.” I guess The Boy Who Murdered Love also ate it afterward, apparently.
Diana Vickers says “It’s such an exciting experience filming my first UK feature film; I was immediately drawn to the script, as I am a real fan of psychoogical thrillers. I’ve been doing a lot of comedy recently and this is a great change and a great opportunity to get my teeth into.”
“Get my teeth into.” I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE, VICKERS.
Sounds like a delicious endeavor — but I suppose this means we’re not getting a single release for “Dead Heat,” “Boy In Paris” or “Blame Game” anytime soon then. Shame.
Let’s bite down on true greatness…
