In development. The senior team is being assembled. We already have a major Producer / Writer, Tony Klinger teamed up with Richard McCann, the author and main character of the story. They’re working together to create the film with care, attention to detail and to reach a global audience.
Cast & Director – Watch This Space
Big star names soon to be announced.
The Stage of the Project – Presently we have entered into the first stages of development. We have the Outline and contracts are in place for the Rights. The senior team is being assembled. We have a Producer / Writer and Associate Producer. We are also well on the way to outlining the Social Outreach Programme we consider integral to this film.
Casting – We intend to be audacious in our reach out to one or two big star names in secondary roles. That would probably be the roles of Richard’s father and his sister, Sonia. We think that the story is so strong that we might well be able to attract major industry support in this area. There will have to be a minimum of two possibly three actors playing the role of Richard McCann at various ages as he goes from 5 to teenager and then adulthood.
Finding An Audience – Anyone can and does spend advertising money and this will be a very strong candidate for that and will be pursued. But every column inch of genuine publicity is worth ten times the advertising space simply because the audience believe in the unpaid. The story of Just A Boy has an already huge audience because of the half million books it has already sold, plus the natural, sometimes prurient interest in The Yorkshire Ripper.
Additional Information – Along with this we are creating a social outreach programme, first of all local to our filming sites, in Leeds and West Yorkshire. We will use this platform to touch the lives of the young, abuses, ill educated, vulnerable children and women, offenders and drug and drink abusers. In fact all the people who could be characters in our film
The film’s makers will use this platform to touch the lives of the young, abused, ill educated, vulnerable children and women, offenders and drug and drink abusers. In fact all the people who could be characters in this film.
This film will touch millions of hearts and minds. The more successful it is the more people will be inspired.
There are many people in today’s England who deserve to know they can triumph, they can achieve magic. This film will resonate with them as it rings the bell loudly for everyone who watches it.
