Quote:
Up-and-coming Brit stars Billy Boyd ('Lord of the Rings' trilogy, 'Master and Commander') and Eva Birthistle ('Ae Fond Kiss') are to star in con-comedy 'Save Angel Hope', a twisted tale of a swindle involving nuns, hurricanes and a non-existent hospital in the South Pacific. The film will be directed by first-timer Lukas Erni
Quote:
According to Shadows on the Wall, a film news site, filming has begun in Luxembourg on Save Angel Hope, and along with Billy, Bernard Hill (King Theoden) has been cast. Since it's just a short blurb, I'll paste it below. Thanks to Holly for finding this tidbit.

Filming started in Luxembourg this week on the comedy SAVE ANGEL HOPE, starring Lord of the Ringers Billy Boyd and Bernard Hill along with Luke Mably, Alice Evans and Eva Birthistle (Ae Fond Kiss). It's a con-artist caper involving a fake nun and a bogus charity scam.

Cool, Billy comedy is good

Is it bad that I don't recognise any names from that cast list except Billy and Bernard Hill?

I found this plot summary on imdb.com...

Quote:
It was a simple swindle, well within the talents of three capable con artists like Fritz, Henry and Vreni. First, they invented a nun: a healer, like Mother Teresa, only much younger and sexier. They called her Angel Hope and they gave her a hospital in the South Pacific. Then they destroyed the hospital and launched a charity campaign to rebuild it. With the noted generosity of the Swiss people working for them, it seemd like a slam-dunk scam. But now Henry is in love with the woman who was supposed to take the fall. And Vreni has found religion. Poor Fritz... trying desperately to milk this cash cow before the Goodness Virus totally infects his friends. Hey, Fritz isn't worried. He's proud of his ability to think on his feet. But what's the thing pride goeth before? Oh, yeah. A fall.
Sounds a little baffling to me

Billy and Bernard are both really amazing actors, so I'm sure it can't be that bad. I'm big fans of both of them.

Oh, I'm sure it won't be bad. Nothing Billy does could be bad *is only slightly biased*

I can see the humour in this situation

It sounds like Billy's character is the one to keep the film going seeing as he's the one whose mind stays on the money.

Billy is one of the 3 main characters. It's so good that he is getting more main character role now!

Just popped onto imdb.com to check for updates and it seems that Billy's characters name isnt Fritz Sandhurst anymore. Its now Vince Sandhurst!
