The Dead Spit Of Kelly

Post by thunder » Fri Nov 08, 2019 10:58 am

A new project for Jason.
...about a taxidermist (Morgan) who kills his cruel boss (Isaacs) and uses his skills to wear the dead man’s skin and live a double life.

It's apparently a dark comedy. Based on a short story by Flann O’Brien. Jim Broadbent is in it too.

Something new to look forward to. :wheee

Wow. That sounds very intriguing. Probably a long way off, tho'.

Here's a theatrical monologue adapted from the short story (SPOILER ALERT):

As far as I understand, Jason must have a lot of screen time in this. I Hope it gets made. I found some old links saying they tried to make this in 2017 too. Let's hope it happens now. :D

And more than a little gross! But an interesting concept.

Just keep thinking about Men in Black and the bug wearing the human skin. :gah:

Hey! We got a mention at the end of the article! ;-)

Myriad’s current slate includes fantasy drama The Lost Girls starring Ellen Burstyn and Emma Thompson, which follows the Darling girls as they resume their lives after meeting Peter Pan.

Um. The Darling girls?? Wendy had two brothers. :scratch

They are adding cast members, so that means it's still on:

There should be quite a bit of screen time for Jason since the lead will look like him!
