Releasing the Riddle
Date posted: 11.09.2007
A new feature release, The Riddle, will make film history by having its premiere in a national newspaper.
Written and directed by Brendan Foley, The Riddle is a smart thriller starring Vinnie Jones, Derek Jacobi and Vanessa Redgrave. The Mail on Sunday will give away free copies of the film with its newspaper on Sunday 16 September.
The newspaper bought the rights to the London- shot film and expects to distribute 2.5million DVD copies this weekend.
“As the maker of a London indie movie with a great cast, this is as good as it gets,” says Brendan.
“I hope people will spread the word and enjoy the movie on Sunday. Effectively, one of the most important characters is the city itself.”
The film was shot along the Thames and virtually every member of the cast and crew was a Londoner, by birth or choice.
The plot centres on an ambitious journalist trying to unravel a series of murders that follow the discovery of an unpublished Dickens novel.
