The Minister of Chance Movie is Coming!
The movie version of the groundbreaking fantasy series THE MINISTER OF CHANCE is on its way. From 1-31st October, a campaign will run on Kickstarter to finance the movie by offering unique rewards to donors in return for funding. Fans, businesses and enthusiasts will be able to sponsor the making of costumes, weapons and other props, then own them after they are used in the film as a valuable piece of memorabilia.
The movie began unusually as an audio series, with the first episode released free on the internet as a podcast. Its amazing success meant that fans from across the World funded a further five episodes to complete the series, with Philip Glenister and Jed Brophy joining the cast at their own request in Episode 5. The stellar cast of the film includes Jenny Agutter O.B.E, Jed Brophy, Lauren Crace, Tamsin Greig, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann and Julian Wadham.
The movie will be shot mainly in Cheshire, UK, home of the production team and famous for its stately homes, castles and lush landscape. Local businesses and employers will be able to sponsor transport, accommodation and meals for the cast. The production team hope that the film will boost tourism to the places used in the film, and a Sci-Fi convention for fans from across the world is being planned in Cheshire for next year.
