Jaime Winstone is to star alongside her father, Ray Winstone, in Elfie Hopkins – a twisted tale of cannibalism set in a British rural hunting village, which begins principle photography on March 8 in locations around Cardiff. This is the first time both actors have worked together. Aneurin Barnard (Spring Awakening, Ironclad) and Kimberley Nixon (Cherrybomb) also star.
Jaime plays the title role, a quirky “wanna-be” detective whose appetite for a real-life case is matched by the appetites of a new family (The Gammons) who move into the village. Ray Winstone plays the local butcher and meat is definitely on the menu…. Sounds a bit like a modern day Motel Hell.
The film is directed by Ryan Andrews, who also wrote the screenplay and acts as co-producer. Billy Murray and Ray Winstone exec produce.
