Treasure Island: Screening and Q&A
Julian Barratt will be appearing in a new TV adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island, airing on Sky1HD in the new year.
The series is directed by Steve Barron (who directed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as well as seminal 80’s pop promos for Michael Jackson, David Bowie and A-ha!) and stars Eddie Izzard in the role of Long John Silver, Elijah Wood as Ben Gunn and Donald Sutherland as Captain Flint. Julian plays the part of Thomas Redruth, the gamekeeper of Squire Trelawney.
Sky is offering its customers an exclusive screening of the first episode at six cinemas around the country on the 15 December, before it airs on TV. There will also be a Q&A with members of the staff at The O2, London with the other venues streaming it live on the big screen. Audience members will have the chance to put questions to the cast regardless of which location they attend. So far only Eddie Izzard has been confirmed for the Q&A; there’s currently no information available regarding Julian’s involvement. Obviously if we hear anything more about it, we’ll be sure to let you know!
For more information about the screening event and Q&A take a look at Sky’s website. Please note that it is only open to Sky customers (boo!) and tickets must be booked by 9am on 15 December.
Looks really interesting though I bet it will be awhile before I can see it (I live in NY.)
Julian looks odd clean shaven.
Had to smile at Steve Barron having previously directed promoes for A-ha(ar Jim Lad!).
Yaaaaaay. We need more Julian in the world ❤
