The ‘rom-com’ has been reinvented for the latest Brit flick comedy shooting in London this summer.
“I’m very excited to be working at home in the UK for the first time in a decade and on a project that excites me. The Revenger is a twist on modern romantic comedies and I can’t wait to jump into it.” – Robert Kazinsky
The Revenger: An Unromantic Comedy, starring Robert Kazinsky, Samantha Barks, Rachel Hurd-Wood, Edward Speleers and Tony Way begins production in the capital later this month (from July 4th).
The film, written and directed by Mark Murphy, is a fresh take on the familiar rom-com film format which sees one man’s quest for love turn to revenge when his wife-to-be attempts to take him for all he’s worth.
Warcraft star Robert Kazinsky, who plays tech entrepreneur Mark, goes on a spree of hilarious antics with Tony Way as best friend Tim, when he discovers his dream girl only wants him for his money. Expecting a life of glamour, his fiancé Connie – played by Les Misérables star Samantha Barks – is subjected to a series of pranks to see just how far she will go to get her hands on his impending £20 million fortune.
With Rachel Hurd-Wood and Edward Speleers as accomplices on either side of the plot, a story of love, revenge and – possibly – closure unfolds. For Murphy, The Revenger is his second feature comedy; following up The Comedian’s Guide To Survival, (2016) and his fifth feature film to date. The film is produced by his own company, Solar Productions, in association with GSP Studios.
“I’m literally bursting with excitement for this film, it’s going to get messy. Right from the rehearsals it’s clear that we’ve got an awesome and hilarious cast; the potential here is spectacular. I’m raring to go.” – Director/writer Mark Murphy
Filming will take place at a variety of locations in the West London and Greater London areas.
