Damian Lewis Vampire Comedy ‘The Radleys’ Boasts an All-Star Ensemble

Bloody Little Secret

by Lacy Baugher | Telly Visions.org | June 29, 2023

Damian Lewis is the sort of actor one tends to associate with prestige drama — he won an Emmy and a Golden Globe for his starring role in the spy thriller Homeland, but his career has spanned series ranging from period dramas (Wolf Hall) to adaptations of literary classics (A Spy Among Friends). With a little Succession-lite thrown on top for good measure (Billions).

He’s definitely not the first actor whose name that comes to mind when you hear the phrase “supernatural black comedy.” But that’s about to change thanks to his new (dual) role in The Radleys, a contemporary vampire film that aims to explore what happens when we ignore our deepest, darkest desires or try to suppress our true selves.

Damian Lewis to Star in Director Euros Lyn‘s ‘The Radleys’

Abstainer Vampires

by Naman Ramachandran | Variety | October 21, 2022

Emmy and Golden Globe winner Damian Lewis (“A Spy Among Friends,” “Billions”) will star in BAFTA-winning “Heartstopper” director Euros Lyn’s supernatural black comedy film “The Radleys.” Collider states, “Lyn will serve as the film’s director. The production marks a reunion between the filmmaker and his leading man as both Lyn and Lewis previously teamed up back in 2020 for the sports drama, Dream Horse.”

“The Radleys” is based on Matt Haig’s popular novel which follows the Radleys, a seemingly ordinary family who hold a dark secret – they are vampires. They are abstainers, vampires who choose not to drink blood despite their natural cravings, but the truth is revealed one day.

The film is based on a script developed by British Comedy Award winner Jo Brand (“Getting on”) and is written by Talitha Stevenson (“Late in Summer”). It will start shooting in the U.K. in May 2023. (UPDATE: Damian revealed shooting begins Monday, June 5, 2023).

The 13 Best Comedy Movies Of 2021 Ranked

Dream Horse

by Liam Gaughan | Slash Film | December 6, 2021

2021 was certainly an unpredictable year for comedy films. Not only were film productions and releases affected by the COVID-19 crisis, but for many, it’s hard to laugh in the face of an ongoing pandemic.

As such, the comedy films of 2021 were an interesting batch that covered many different genres. Some of the biggest hits of the year were action-comedies that seamlessly combined thrills and laughs; while films like “Red Notice,” “The Suicide Squad,” and “Nobody” have more serious elements, there’s certainly a large amount of comedy in both. After a challenging year, audiences enjoyed these humorous crowd pleasers.

In addition, the prominence of streaming services and simultaneous distribution strategies has allowed many smaller and independent films to gain a larger audience. Between Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, HBO Max, Disney+, Peacock, Paramount+, and Shudder, film fans have more freedom than ever to explore a wide range of comedic films. It’s been particularly interesting to see how indie artists have responded to the pandemic with innovative projects, and many of 2021’s comedy films are expected to be major awards contenders.
