BARNES ROFFE MEETS ROBERT VAUGHN
Robert Vaughn, the last surviving member of The Magnificent Seven was in Leytonstone last week shooting a British comedy film, The Magnificent Eleven. The film, loosely based on The Magnificent Seven is produced by Barnes Roffe clients Angry Badger Pictures Ltd and Plumcourt Productions Limited. Partner Paul Hughes, who worked with the producers to structure the financing of the film, commented, “The making of this film is a triumph for the British film industry bringing together industry finance, private equity and tax credits.”
As for Robert Vaughn, this is a film he really wanted to do and the producers were delighted that he was available after finishing shooting “Hustle” and before he joins the cast of Coronation Street. He also kept other members of the cast, which includes Keith Allen (The Body Farm, the Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood), Sean Pertwee (Dog Soldiers), Paul Barber (The Full Monty), Gary Mavers (Peak Practice) and Phillip Rhys (Nip/Tuck) entertained with his stories of filming The Magnificent Seven. Says Paul Hughes, “It was a pleasure to meet “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.”. He is a very friendly and charming man.”
The film, The Magnificent Eleven should be released next year.
