Hammer Announces Cast and SynopsisGoon
Awhile back we announced that Hammer had once again been given a boost to create more films. It has happened a couple times but now they are dead serious and have just announced the synopsis, cast and crew for their upcoming web series Beyond the Rave.
The movie follows the last hours of freedom of local soldier Ed, who is flying out to Iraq the following morning. With the help of his best friend Necro, he spends his last night in the UK tracking down his missing girlfriend Jen, last seen partying with a bizarre group of hardcore night-time ravers led by the mysterious Melech. But as he catches up with Jen at a party in a remote forest, Ed discovers that Melech’s crowd, who are hosting the event, are looking for more than a night of fun, and that not everyone will make it through to dawn…
Beyond the Rave will be directed by Matthias Hoene known mostly for his commercial and video work. The cast includes Nora-Jane Noone (The Descent), Jamie Dornan, Tamer Hassan (The Ferryman, Eastern Promises), Sebastian Knapp (28 Days Later), Les Simpson (Dog Soldiers, Doomsday), Lois Winstone (When Evil Calls) and Steve Sweeney. There are also special appearances by Hammer legend Ingrid Pitt and Sadie Frost.
Special FX will be handled by the one and only Tristan Versluis. You may not know who he is but I guarantee you have seen his work. He has worked on Evil Aliens, Hot Fuzz, Isolation and Broken. So far everything sounds great so keep it here for more.
