CUPSOGUE PICTURES are pleased to announce that actors James Buckley, known for his role as Jay in the hugely successful British TV series ‘The Inbetweeners’, and Bruce Campbell, known for his roles in many cult horror films including ‘The Evil Dead’ have both joined the cast of upcoming fantasy motion picture ‘Welcome to Purgatory’.
Buckley, who is best known for his role as cocky student Jay Cartwright in ‘The Inbetweeners’ has joined the cast in the role of Luke, a petty thief who doesn’t have much luck, even in the Afterlife. Along with his partner-in-crime, Charlie (Stephen Marcus), they try to make the best of every bad situation in Purgatory, but with little success. Buckley, who also appeared in Matt Drake’s ‘Charlie Countryman’ and ‘The Inbetweeners Movie’ is just about to make a theatrical return in its upcoming sequel ‘The Inbetweeners 2’.
Campbell, who often works with Sam Raimi, Eli Roth and ‘Welcome To Purgatory’s own executive producer Scott Spiegel, is known for appearing in over 100 movies, many of which have become cult classics, making Campbell himself a cult icon after starring in such films as ‘Army of Darkness’, ‘The Evil Dead’, ‘Burn Notice’, ‘Spider-man’ and ‘Bubba Ho-Tep’.
‘Welcome To Purgatory’ also stars Jillian Murray (‘Wild Things: Foursome’, ‘’Bad Ass’), Nathan Jones (‘Troy’, ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’), Jack O’Halloran (‘Superman’, ‘King Kong’), and Stephen Marcus (‘Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels’, ‘Quills’), and will be directed by British director Gene Fallaize.
‘Welcome to Purgatory’ follows three new arrivals – Willis, Taylor and Danni – as they navigate this fresh vision of the Afterlife, helped along the way by Guardian Paul. The gates of Heaven & Hell have been broken and the Afterlife is in ruins. The new arrivals must find a way to put things right to prevent an eternal battle between good and evil.
Tony Cook and Gene Fallaize are producing the picture for Cupsogue Pictures, which was written by Marcus Ako & Tony Cook. Filming is due to commence on ‘Welcome to Purgatory’ at Pinewood Studios, ahead of a theatrical release in 2015.
