enjoyed making prank calls. I spent half an hour on the phone to

Clarks pretending to be a man who couldn't get his shoe off.” Tom sharing

with us how hard and serious this filming business is... ;)

Tom cast as lead in a new movie! Tom is to play the lead - an “Untrustworthy man”  in the Joanna Hogg production team movie ‘The Souvenir’. This is a two part story to be shot as two movies. Tom will play the male lead in the first one set in the 1980’s and Robert Patttinson will play the lead in the second to be shot next year. Martin Scorsese (yes *that* one!) is going to executive produce this British production which will start shooting in London and Norfolk at the end of July for 8 weeks. No news yet on who the female lead is yet but this sounds like an intriguing project! Details to be found here , here and here
Mail on Sunday and Radio Times - ‘Strike’ broadcast date JK Rowling hinted on Twitter that ‘Strike’ was coming ‘very soon’. Well the Mail on Sunday and the Radio Times have now confirmed that we will be getting to see ‘Strike’ in August on BBC 1. The series runs for 7 episodes so if uninterupted will run through into September and possibly October depending on how late in August it starts.
No firm news on HBO broadcast date for the USA yet. Fans already asking when HBO will schedule ‘Strike’ in the USA. A viewer asked community voices about HBO’s schedule. The response was :- “News of HBO picking up this series for American distribution came out last year but my understanding is it’s too early to determine even what year the  program will air at this point.” @CormoranStrike_ on Twitter also emailed HBO directly and got a similar answer that they have no plans yet when it will be screened. So sorry folks no word yet! If I hear anything more I will post here!

We have raised over £2000.00 so far but there is still time to donate for Tom’s birthday in the meantime. You can donate on our Just giving page. A massive massive thank you to everyone who has donated so far so generously and participated in our fan shennanigans in tom’s honour. Xx We’ve also already had a lovely ‘thank you’ email from Michael Wicherek who is the Artistic Directior at Box Clever Theatre thanking all of us for our support. I’ve shared a copy of the text below. :)
