Comedian Seann Walsh makes his feature film debut in The Bystanders, and here are the first details.
Stand up comic Seann Walsh is to make his feature film debut in sci-fi comedy The Bystanders.
The film, described as “The Adjustment Bureau reimagined as an Ealing comedy with twisted echoes of Wim Wenders’ romantic angel fantasy Wings Of Desire, takes place in a world where invisible immortals watch over humans and intervene in (or interfere with) their lives. Pete (Scott Haran), a new Bystander being shown the ropes by Walsh’s world-weary tutor Frank, who is mostly irritated by the humans they watch. For fun, Frank suggests they swap their charges”.
Haran and Walsh star alongside fellow comedians Marek Larwood and Nick Helm, with Inbetweeners star David Schaal, Lauren Douglin, Frank Harper, Caroline Ginty, Emily Milburn, Tom Clegg and Lucy Pinder completing the ensemble.
Gabriel Foster Prior directs from a screenplay he co-wrote with Jack Hughes, who previously collaborated with Walsh to make online series The Drunk.
The Bystanders will premiere at the closing night of the Sci Fi London Film Festival on the 6th June.
