Harry Hill’s new movie has been confirmed today, with filming due to start on Sunday across the UK for eight weeks, – and you can be in the film.
The premise and a star studded cast has also bee announced. The film will revolve around Harry’s hamster, who only has a week to live, and a road trip to Blackpool. Harry will be joined by his Nan, played by comedy great Julie Walters, and along the way, they will meet a vet, played by The Inbetweeners’ Simon Bird and Harry will fall in love interest, an undersea shell person, played by Jonathan Creek star Sheridan Smith. Other plot details revealed include canine superstars The Dachsund Five and indie rock band The Magic Numbers, who run a Bed and Breakfast.
The finale will be set to the background of The Blackpool Tower, with a big fight – perhaps with Harry’s evil twin Otto, played by Little Britain’s Matt Lucas, who was separated from Harry at birth and brought up by Alsatians.
The all singing, all dancing movie will also feature Shirley Ghostman comedian Marc Wootton, The Might Boosh’s Julian Barratt and The Iron Lady star Jim Broadbent.
Talking about the movie, Harry has said:
I’m thrilled at last to be able to tell the world the true story of my hamster’s struggle on the big screen and even more excited to be working with some of the comedy greats of the British film industry.
Producer Robert Jones added:
It is an honour indeed to be able to help Harry bring a story so close to his heart to the public at large, many of whom will personally identify with the events depicted.
On the production side, the movie is being directed by Steve Bendelack, written by Harry, Jon Foster and James Lamont and the director of photography being Baz Irvine. The film is being financed by Entertainment Film Distributors and produced by Robert and Lucky Features.
You can also be a part of the film yourself! The team are looking for fans to be extras on two dates later this month. They are looking for extra on Monday 20th in Richmond, Surrey and Friday 24th in Longcross, Surrey. Extras will receive meals and travel subsidies, and must be 16+.
