Hugh Bonneville Joins Our New Production.

  • Posted On:July 01, 2024

Filming is underway in Hertfordshire on a new dark comedy film called Go Away! 

Written and directed by Ed Kear and Cringo Williamson and partly based on their own past experiences of dealing with debt and bailiffs, the comedy focuses on life-long layabout and lodger Kyle Burden as his life is flipped upside down when an accident with a bailiff on the same day that his landlord has scheduled viewings with potential buyers threatens to derail his pot growing business.

Michael Socha takes on the lead role of Kyle. Ella Bruccoleri, best known for her role in Call The Midwife, has been cast as Kyle's quirky friend Gemma while ‘Paddington’ and ‘Downton Abbey’ star Hugh Bonneville plays the mysterious 'Bernard' - the only witness to the incident with the bailiff.

Niky Wardley is the Estate Agent, Jo Martin plays the Police Chief, Steve Speirs plays a character called Paul and the Bailiff is portrayed by Paul McNeilly, while Chris Gascoyne is Don. The cast list also features Jeff Mirza, Hatty Preston, Gerard Horan, Rebecca-Clare Evans and more.

The directors, who work together under the name Rude Guests, say: "We had a fantastic time developing this project and are incredibly excited to see it come to life with such a fantastic cast and crew. We look forward to delivering a film that's funny and poignant in equal measure which we hope will live long in the memory of its audience".

The film is produced by Gina Lyons (Dinner With the Parents) of Gobby Girl Productions and Kristyna Sellnerova (Duchess) for Go Away Film Ltd. The executive producer credits are shared by Ram Getz and Michael Mortensen through their GM Management banner; Lyndon Baldock from Templeheart Films; Mark Sandell, Vik Bansal, Harvey Dean, Tarek Anthony Jabre; and Melora Donoghue and Randy Wooten for Low Road Films.
