WHISPER, which goes into production in September 2011 on locations in the UK, explores the nature of grief and the terrifying consequences of experimenting with Electronic Voice Phenomena to talk to the dead. It will be helmed by Terence Gross, the award-winning director of Hotel Splendide. The cast will be announced shortly.
Jonathan Sothcott, Black & Blue’s MD said today: “We are delighted to be partnering with Lysette and her business partner Rachel Chatterjee for Whisper. They have identified and secured a genuinely excellent project that we are looking forward to bringing to the screen and we’re thrilled that they chose Black and Blue to help them with their feature debut. Lysette has been one of my favourite actresses for a long time and I’m especially thrilled that she’s going to be working with us.”
Lysette Anthony added: “To be honest Rachel and I are a little overwhelmed. To have Black & Blue green-light us with the ink barely dry on our latest ‘Whisper’ draft is, well, the stuff of movies. We’re honoured to be making our first film with them.”
