Star date: 15th July 2012

WHO GETS £100MILLION?

Will Power (15) World Premiere
Tuesday 31st July 7pm
Odeon Trafford Centre

A new movie that has a top plot and great cast, complete with scenes shot at St Luke's Church on Liverpool Street and jointly made by Salford based Chris Lane Productions, gets its world premiere in a few weeks.

Comedy drama, Will Power, centres on the last will of a tycoon who decreed that his ex wife and brother should decide who gets his £100million – any family member but themselves. Let the aggro begin…

Multi-millionaire William Ryan (Peter Caruthers) dies in an extreme zorbing (Google it!) accident and leaves a will giving away his £100million to a family member. But which one?

His estranged wife Shelly (Emma Kenny), and brother Daniel (Ian Curley) have to decide who gets the inheritance – anyone but each other. Or as the trailer glows… `£100 million to one… But which one?'

The scene is definitely set for extreme aggro and inter family unfamiliarity.

There's loads of Salford connections in the ambitious movie. Salford based media company, Chris Lane Productions (See previous Salford Star features here and here), has jointly made the film with Zero Facility Films, while the opening scenes were shot at St Luke's Church on Liverpool Street…
 
"The generosity and good will of St Luke's was astounding" says writer and director Tim Limon "We found ourselves in the unenviable position of not having a location for one of the key opening scenes, it was surprising how much red tape there was using other churches in the Greater Manchester area...then we came across St Luke's.

"Not only was it the perfect location, adhering to the specific description of what we were looking for" he adds "but upon meeting Christine Allmark and Sonia Whittle, who were rehearsing a show at the time, they didn't ask any restrictive questions and were only too happy to accommodate us with that true supportive community spirit that can be so rare in this day and age. We owe them a lot!"

Christine and Sonia also gave the movie makers a DVD of St Luke's Arts and Drama Society recent Tutankhamun show… "I was blown away by the complexity and spirit of the piece" says Tim "And then I understood why they were so accommodating, in that they were probably the same as us. Independent community doing it for the love of it, and sharing their wealth for mutual benefit.  If they ever put Tutankhamun on again I highly recommend a viewing. I know I'll be going to see it…"

While St Luke's features in the movie, Salford Arts Theatre goers will also recognise Paul Green (Derek Ryan), who starred as the dame in the panto last year, and is set to be in the role again for Dick Whittington this year.

In Will Power's lead roles are Marc Pickering (PC Sudbury) who starred as R Wayne in Peter Kay's Britain's Got The Pop Factor, as well as having parts in big films like Sleepy Hollow and Calendar Girls; Emma Kenny (Shelly Ryan), who's done loads of tv ads, teaches comedy and has featured in the films Cactus Selves and Poker Face; and Ian Curley (Daniel Ryan), who's featured in Coronation Street, Emmerdale and films including Looking For Lucky.

All in all, and on a virtual nil budget, Will Power looks to be an intriguing tale of money, greed, family disputes and loads of dry comedy.

AS £5.5MILLION AVOIDED BY DEVELOPERS SALFORD MAYOR SAYS IT'S A 'MYTH'!

In the latest issue of Salford Council's propaganda mag, Life in Salford, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, has denounced the "myth" that "developers don't contribute money to the city. It's simply not true" he says.

Yes, they do contribute some money but they also avoid millions of pounds in payments and provision of affordable housing. Indeed, Salford Star analysis shows that developers avoided almost £5.5million in payments last year, as the Mayor only tells half the truth.
