From the same team that produced ‘Stanley a Man of Variety’ in 2015 comes Steven
Berkoff’s Tell Tale Heart and ‘Shakespeare’s Heroes and Villain’s’
Adapted from the short story by Edgar Allan Poe. Tell Tale Heart is told by an
unnamed narrator, who endeavors to convince the audience of his sanity, whilst
describing a murder he has committed.
The story has been adapted by Stephen Cookson & Steven Berkoff who plays
Edmund, as the lead in the film. This is producers Stephen Cookson and Peter
Keegan’s fifth project together. The film is shot by DoP Ismael Issa and line produced
by Patricia Rybarczyk who has brought the crew back together to shoot the two films
back to back with ‘Shakespeare’s Heroes and Villian’s’ following ‘Tell Tale Heart’,
which will see Mr. Berkoff recite passages from various Shakespearean plays which
he will then analyze and discuss.
Peter Keegan of CK Films is co-financing with Gary Collins of Red Rock
Entertainment. The producers are currently talking to sales agents about handling
worldwide sales.
We are delighted to announce Henry Goodman (The Damned United), Hugh Skinner
(W1A, The Windsors), Dudley Sutton (The Pink Panther Strikes Again) and Mark
Brailsford who join ‘Tell Tale Heart’ as supporting cast.
