Andy Serkis is off to The Cottage

With a healthy gift of cash from the Film Commission, London To Brighton helmer Paul Andrew Williams can finally find that perfect little holiday home in which to murder several British actors.

Next month, he’ll start shooting The Cottage, which is described as a black comedy horror set in the remote countryside, and features two brothers (one of them LOTR’s Andy Serkis) who bungle the kidnapping of a crime boss’s sexy daughter before falling foul of a dark rural secret.

Starring alongside Serkis are The League Of Gentlemen’s Reece Shearsmith, Jennifer Ellison of Brookside and The Phantom Of The Opera fame and Steve O'Donnell, last seen as Goering in Churchill: The Hollywood Years.

Let’s hope the money covers the cost of blood in the budget…
