Infidel on DVD and Blu-Ray from tomorrow!

Buy it! Buy it! Buy it! Buy it! I promise you won’t make my brother rich, but you will a) be entertaining yourself, and b) helping out a little bit. If you don’t remember, it’s the film Arvind produced that came out to vast amounts of press and warm reception from the critics earlier this year. It tells the tale of a moderate British muslim who one day finds out he is really Jewish, was written by David Baddiel and stars Omid Djalili et al.


…is the next film from Slingshot, and I didn’t even realise that the website is up! Well, ish, you can register for more info… but expect blood curling trailers to follow…

… for those who don’t know, it’s a teen horror movie featuring zombies aplenty. And apparently an inhaler (I’ve only seen a few outtakes). It stars Alex Pettyfer, the actor from the Stormbreaker film a few years ago.

Clearly Tormented will be awesome (but not for the squeamish)… so there are three films awaiting release from the Slingshot stable to look forward to in the next year or so: Faintheart, French Film and Tormented… and more in development, including movies from comic book legend Mike Carey and comedian David Baddiel.

French Film

Long time readers will know that whilst I work in the world of technology PR, my brother has a marginally more glamorous career – he’s a movie producer. His next film, French Film, should be out later this year and the website has just gone live here.

Starring Hugh Bonneville (Notting Hill), Anne-Marie Duff, Eric Cantona (Manchester United) and Douglas Henshall (Primeval) amongst others, it is very, very entertaining and I hope you get a chance to see it, join the Facebook group etc. Definitely check out the trailer at the French Film website.
