Cormoran Strike actor Tom Burke is starring in an upcoming independent film called The Show, written by Alan Moore (V for Vendetta and Watchmen) and directed by Mitch Jenkins.
“Fletcher Dennis (Tom Burke), a man of many talents, passports, and identities, arrives in Northampton – a strange and haunted town in the heart of England, as dangerous as he is. On a mission to locate a stolen artefact for his menacing client, Fletcher finds himself entangled in a twilight world populated with vampires, sleeping beauties, Voodoo gangsters, noir private eyes, and masked avengers. He quickly sinks into a bizarre and delirious black hole, that is hidden just beneath the surface of this seemingly quiet town. Soon enough Fletcher discovers that dreams and reality have been blurred and there might no longer be a real world to go back to… Welcome to The Show.”
The Show is set to premier on 12 October at the Sitges Film Festival in Spain and expected to arrive in the UK sometime in 2021.
