Written and directed by Nick Whitfield, Skeletons is a surrealist comedy about two travelling salesmen in the business of cleaning skeletons out of people's closets.
Nice news, good to know that our Jason joins the cast. Looking forward to knowing more about this.

Thanks LadyLucius!

Interesting first mention. I'm surprised Jason never brought it up. There's also nothing about it at the IMDb and I couldn't find a website for Forward Films.

Thanks for bringing it to our attention, Sue. We'll have to keep an eye out for this.

On this page, SKELETONS was one of the selected projects to be shown at the 2009 Cinemart which ran January 25-29 this year??

Maybe it got stuck in development hell? God knows we've seen it happen before.

A new film? Great news.

I think Cinemart is for presentation of projects. The Norwegian film listed there hasn't been made yet either. According to the site of the Norwegian Film Institute it's some kind of convention where production companies try to find international collaborators for their projects. (If I understood it right - and I think I did)

Our Jason's a busy boy lately. Maybe he's taken to heart all the "cue crickets" jibes we've been making at the long dry spell we had of Jason news. More to look forward to. :wheee

Thanks! thunder. Yes, that little pic reminded me of Frank.

Did it sound like Jason's part was done? He was needed for only a few days??

It's hard to tell from the article if he has done his part yet or not. He says that it all happened in a blink of an eye, but that can mean that it was arranged very quickly. (From he was asked and untill he started working on it). And it says he had to stay in the same cottage as two other actors for a few days. But that can mean that one part of the shooting, they had to live together in a cottage for a couple of days.

What do I know? I try not to get my hopes up too high. I'm used to his "5 minutes contributions". I'm glad he is working :D

But if it's based on a short film, it probably means that there aren't too many different parts in it. And that can mean that his part in the film isn't too small. Unless they have rewritten and expanded the story a lot from the short film it is based on.
