Writer Alan Moore, best known for his groundbreaking graphic novels (including The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen, From Hell, V For Vendetta, Watchmen) and director Mitch Jenkins are making a series of short films. Produced By Lex Projects, these occult, noir-flecked pieces are Moore’s first work written specifically for the screen and made with his ongoing creative involvement…
The first installment, entitled Act of Faith, stars Siobhan Hewlett (Sherlock, Hotel Babylon, Torchwood) and was recently shot in London. The second piece, Jimmy’s End, will be filmed in Northampton later this summer.
Originally intended as a brief ten-minute, one-off piece, the project has evolved into a multi-layered, multi-episode narrative created by Moore and brought to life by Jenkins. The working title for the overall series is Show Pieces.
Act of Faith and Jimmy’s End will premiere via The Creator’s Project in late 2012.
