Faye Dunaway in Welsh horror Flick!

FayeDunaway.jpgFaye Dunaway is starring in a Welsh low budget horror film. Yes, you heard me right, and what's more she's playing a one armed police-person in the film called Flick.

The story seems a little confusing, but here's the outline from the BBC:

...she plays detective Lieutenant McKenzie called in to investigate a murder after a fight at the Memo - the Newbridge Memorial Hall - in the 1950s.

The murder victim - a local boy - is brought back to life in modern times and tries to find his teenage sweetheart, by then 65.

Shooting is underway in Pontypool and Cardiff with locals working as extras, and Dunaway liked the script from David Howard so much she took a cut in her usual GB£1million fee, a big cut I expect.

If you fancy trying out for a part, and you are a local, there are two scenes being cast for between February the 3rd and the 6th. According to Free Press Series:

The first two days are for a 60s dance hall scene and it is an open casting for people aged between 18 and 50. The second is for a Hallowe'en fancy dress party, and they are looking for people aged between 18 and 25. Please call Lauren Beaven on .

Over at the South Wales Argus they have a couple of shots of Dunaway on set.

Who'd have thought it? Faye Dunaway in a Welsh one-armed detective, time travelling, horror film?



Better send this link to my Welsh friends!

Diolch yn faur, Richard! ;)

Wow! You can write Welsh!

I can speak a bit of it too! I lived in South West Wales in a small town called Llanelli for 2 years before I moved to London, so I know a few greetings and somehow, I also adopted the accent!

Faye Dunaway had aged gracefully too hasnt she?
