Eddie Marsan Joins Junkhearts
Tom Sturridge also on for the Brit indie

02 June 2010  |  Written by Alastair Plumb

Low-budget British indie Junkhearts is now being lead by the regularly excellent Eddie Marsan, and will be joined British up and comers Tom Sturridge (the young fella from The Boat That Rocked) and Romola Garai (I Capture The Castle, Atonement).

Following on from his similarly dark and edgy The Disappearance Of Alice Creed, Junkhearts is a gritty urban story of an ex-soldier who is convinced by a manipulative young couple into letting them take over his house and use it as a drug den. Happy days!

It’s being directed by newcomer Tinge Krishnan, who’s previously won a BAFTA for her short film Shadowscan in 2001, a similarly bleak tale, a discussion of depression set on a nightshift of an NHS hospital. The script is written by another relative beginner Simon Frank, who’s so excited about the project he tweeted just a few days ago: “Day two of Junkhearts shoot. Still pinching myself that it's actually happening.”

The magic of cinema still exists, people. We’ve seen it! Simon Frank has proof!

Shooting begins this week and the film is slated for a 2011 release.
