Good Arrows Irvine Welsh's TV Directorial Debut

 
Good friends of ZANI, Irvine Welsh & Dean Cavanagh are about to start filming Good Arrows, the first film from their production company Jawbone. Irvine Welsh has been a busy lad lately: his new novel Crime has hit the shelves running and he's about to start work on a prequel to Trainspotting set in the early 1980's. Good Arrows sees Cavanagh and Welsh collaborating again after having made the BAFTA nominated Dose for BBC3 and the critically acclaimed Wedding Belles for CHANNEL 4. Wedding Belles caused quite a stir after the News Of The World called for it to be banned. ZANI want to know if we can expect any controversy from Good Arrows?

Caroline Munro The Fantasy Icon

“Being in the right place, at the right time,” is how Brian Jones, then of The Rolling Stones,   described the discovery of the band. Certainly there is more depth to Brian Jones’s statement. Nevertheless what is true with his train of thought is the essence and spirit of the 60’s. An era where new ideas and new acts, seemed to be an everyday occurrence.

For someone who never had the intention of ever being an actor, Tamer Hassan has certainly achieved a great deal of success. He has worked with the likes of Christian Bale, Bob Hoskins, Orlando Bloom, and Morgan Freeman. His career path all started from a small part in Eastenders in 2001. Tamer was fortunate enough to pass by the failed auditions, and wondering where his next meal was coming from.

The Panic in Needle Park

Before Al Pacino gained world wide recognition as a talented actor and achieved global fame from his spellbinding appearance as Michael Corleone in The  Godfather, he had been a fringe actor. Only appearing in three feature films, and just one of those as a lead, The Panic in Needle Park,  it was from this appearance that Francis Ford Coppola knew Al Pacino was perfect for The Godfather.

I enter into a hotel lobby to meet the star of the BBC 3 hit comedy series, Mongrels, Nelson the Fox. He has requested that I don’t reveal the name or location of the hotel, as it is place that he likes to frequent on his own or with friends, to unwind and enjoy a selection of cakes and tea. All I can reveal is that it is a five star hotel in the heart of central London, renowned for their afternoon beverages.
