Following the global success of the action thriller Interview with a Hitman, British writer, director and producer Perry Bhandal is reuniting with US based actor and former Bros drummer Luke Goss for The Last Boy, which will begin shooting in October. The post-apocalyptic film will follow a young boy, who is sent by his dying mother on a quest to find the place that grants wishes.
“It’s a premise I have wanted to explore for a long time, about how our human relationships change when there is no-one left and ask if we as a species are fit custodians of our precious planet,” explains Perry, “I also wanted to present a different kind of apocalypse – not one of death and destruction but of simple loss on a huge scale and how that affects individuals and their reasons for being as they navigate a world they no longer recognise. I am delighted Richard Swingle has joined us as his unique shooting style will echo my vision for the film.”
“Perry Bhandal is a friend and a director I greatly enjoy working with. After the success of our last movie together, Interview With a Hitman, it was an easy decision to make in regards to collaborating again,” adds Goss. “The Last Boy is a multifaceted story that gives us an opportunity to give the fans of our last movie something different. I also get to shoot in the UK which is something I don’t get to do often, so all round I’m greatly looking forward to start shooting in October.”
