Get Ready For THE REPRISALIZER!!
Matthew Holness broke new comedy ground as horror writer turned 80’s television actor Garth Marenghi in the British dark comedy Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace – a cult series that should be every bit as successful as Gervais’ Office (on which Holness also appeared). While Marenghi spin-off Man To Man With Dean Lerner held us over for a bit – it only made us hungrier for more Marenghi. And while Holness has recently appeared on Gervais & Merchant’s brilliant Life’s Too Short, he was severely under-used on that series. But don’t fret! It looks like Holness is up to his old bag of tricks with his current project, a new feature film spoof of both â€˜80s cop dramas and Death Wish type films. The Reprisalizer will follow the twisted acts of Bob Shuter, described as â€œa normal newspaper kiosk vendor until gangsters electrified his brotherâ€™s testicles by car battery.â€
Warp Films â€“ which produced fellow Marenghi creator/co-star Richard Ayoadeâ€™s Submarine â€“ is backing the project, which Holness has written. It’s scheduled for a summer 2013 release, but you can get a taste of The Reprisalizer’s brand of justice right now by heading over to the OFFICIAL SITE! Buck Up!
