The late Julian Sands stars opposite Charlotte Hope in The Piper, and the trailer for the movie has landed. More here.


The actor Julian Sands left us in 2023, when he disappeared while mountaineering in California at the start of the year. Aged just 65, he left behind a wealth of acting work, including a handful of movies he’d shot but hadn’t been released.

Here’s one of them now. It’s called The Piper, and Sands co-stars with Charlotte Hope in the film. It looks a hearty mix of classical music and horror, and thus far, we have but a smattering of information about it. We shall thus duly share with you what we have.

The logline for the movie reads, quite simply:

When a composer must finish her late mentor’s concerto, she discovers that playing its music summons deadly consequences.

We also have the trailer for the film, as it happens. This too features classical music, being conducted in this instance by Julian Sands. Take a look…

Erlingur Thoroddsen has both written and directed the film, which is getting a release in the US on 8th March. It’ll be heading to both cinemas and video on demand services on the same day. We don’t yet have details as to who has picked the film up in the UK, but as and when we hear more, we’ll let you know.

For fans of Julian Sands, we’re still awaiting news of a release for a couple more films that he completed his work on. There’s Body Odyssey in which he stars with Hanna Ullerstam in the story of a female bodybuilder. Then there’s The Last Breath, about a bunch of scuba divers who discover both a World War II battleship underwater, and also a shitload of sharks circling it.

We’ll keep an eye out for The Last Breath in particular. Much missed, Julian Sands.
