Medusa's Ankles (short movie)

Post by Tosca Nini » Wed Jan 20, 2016 7:21 am

It seems Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley) is about to direct Jason in a short movie called Medusa's Ankles!! To be filmed during the following days.

See here http://www.the-leaky-cauldron.org/2016/ ... as-ankles/

And they are casting customers for a Hair Salon scene.

I wonder if JI will be playing Lucian the hairdresser? And I love Kerry Fox as an actress

Anyway, good news, I'm sure the short will be released. Directed by Ginny Weasley? Wow :yip

The Harry Potter series created a dazzling group of children, who have become talented adults. Go, Bonnie. Good choice of actor to work with.

Great news - always look forward to seeing (or trying to see!!) a new Jason project. And one with an HP alum as the Director is gravy!

I found the short story it's based on, we can read it here (spoilers, because I don't know how much "based on" it is...):

And Bonnie Wright and JI posted pics on twitter:

I just got around to reading the short story. I have always A.S. Byatt, (except for one of her books).
I hope we see this soon.

I went to Bonnie Wrights company's website. They have a lot of (if it's not all of) her short films posted. Let's hope this will be posted there as well. :D

I just love the fact that he's called Lucian in this! :D It's based on a story by AS Byatt, and she gave the character that name, so it's a huge coincidence.

Jason as a kind of self obsessed and bullying hairdresser. I must say he looks pretty professional with the scissors. :hands

Thanks for the link, thunder. A lot of touchy-feely in that salon. Jason was engaging, as always.
Funny how he complained about his wife’s fat ankles...

That was really good. Jason coiffed like a pro. I was waiting for a purple streak to go into her hair. :lol

Big high five to Bonnie Wright.
