New Movies with Hammer Stars

A poster on my Caroline Munro discussion group revealed this week that Caroline had told him she would appear in a cameo in a new Dick Turpin film.

It's only a cameo role alongside Jeremy Bulloch and a new actor who plays Dick Turpin
(she can't remember his name), but she and Jeremy get held up by Turpin and robbed. She plays a lady. It's directed by Chris Stone and is being filmed in Staffordshire in April. Will let you know more when I get it.

Sky One tonight will show the first part of Terry Pratchett's The Colour of Magic adaptation in which Christopher Lee can be heard as the voice of Death. The concluding second part will be shown tomorrow night.

Speaking of Lee: A new poster for Cowboys for Christ, the Robin Hardy/Wicker Man reimagining of sorts, now also has Joan Collins' name firmly attached to it. The filming for Christopher Lee's part will apparently start in April.

Not a new film, but a rare Hammer: According to DVD Drive-In The Man Who Could Cheat Death with be released by Legend Films later this year. The same company will also release the Amicus productions The Skull and The Deadly Bees.
