Epic: Matthew Macfadyen's next project

Here's what Matthew Macfadyen has confirmed about his next project called Epic

  • It is a 'gentle black comedy'
  • Will be filmed in Georgia next month
  • His character will be a film director

What we've dug up.

Epic is a gentle black comedy about a confused, washed up British director who gets invited by a nascent state to make a national Epic in an obscure Caucasus Republic. The country led by an eccentric, enigmatic, if corrupt, benign dictator. It is a comedy and love story set against the backdrop of beautiful country fast falling into a state of disintegration.

It appears that the cast of this project has changed from older reports, at least we now know that Matthew Macfadyen is  the filmmaker/director.
