Fashion On Screen Plc announces Director of forthcoming feature film REVolution
Fashion On Screen Plc (“FOS” or the “Company”), the film and entertainment company, is pleased to announce that it has appointed one of Britain’s leading film directors to begin work on the company’s first major feature, REVolution.
Peter Macdonald is one of Britain’s most respected film directors and cinematographers. He began his career as a camera operator on films including Superman and A Bridge Too Far, moving on to become a highly sought-after Second Unit Director on films such as The Bourne Ultimatum, Batman, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire and Cry Freedom. He has directed a number of successful movies, from big-budget movies such as Rambo III and The NeverEnding Story III, box office number one Mo’ Money to prestigious television series such as The Lost Empire.
REVolution is a £25 million budget international feature film set in pre-Revolutionary Cuba in 1958. It takes as its theme the true story of the kidnapping of world motor racing champion Juan Fangio, set against an action-packed fictional drama situated on the racetrack and exotic nightclubs of Batista’s Cuba as Fidel Castro’s men gather in the hills. The feature will be given a global release with significant inputs from subsidiary revenues in terms of music, sponsorship and product placement.
Paul Tucker, Director of FOS and lead Producer on REVolution, said: “Peter is known throughout the international film world as a top class Director of action, passion and drama. We could have no better creative Director for our first major feature.”
Peter Macdonald said: “I am looking forward to working with Paul and the FOS team as we prepare to begin filming in Cuba and the Dominican Republic later this year. This is a terrific story and a great script and we will be making announcements on lead roles in the coming weeks.”
Nevern Johns, Managing Director of FOS Plc, said: “As we move into our exciting next phase with a forthcoming listing on the Vienna Stock Exchange (Wiener Borse) Third Market Exchange Trading Facility, I could not be happier that we have been able to secure such a talent as Peter to lead our first major feature.”
