Sylvester McCoy Joins Scots Romcom Journey Bound!

Sylvester McCoy, star of Doctor Who and The Hobbit trilogy is the latest house-hold name to join the cast of new Scots indie film Journey Bound.

The romcom road movie is directed by BAFTA nominated filmmaker Ryan Hendrick and tells the story of a young lawyer being driven by his eco-warrior cousin through the Highlands of Scotland to salvage his relationship with the love of his life. Hendrick’s ambitious vision has already attracted some of the most talented people working in film and television today with Still Game star Ford Kiernan, Gregory’s Girl star Clare Grogan and Doctor Who/Emmerdale favourite Frazer Hines, along with award winning cinematographer John Rhodes (Only Fools and Horses, One Foot in The Algarve & 16 Years of Alcohol) and renowned theatre director and musician Gordon Dougall.

Director Hendrick says:

It is fantastic that such esteemed and talented professionals like Ford, Clare, Frazer, John, Gordon and now Sylvester are wanting to be involved in this project as they all understand what we are trying to achieve.

Journey Bound starts filming later this year – you can follow progress on twitter @JOURNEYBOUND1 or check out the official Facebook page.

(With thanks to Ryan)
