Synopsis: The Rabbit’s Foot is a pitch black comic fable, set against the backdrop of the Old West. Under the influence of a mystical rabbit’s foot, the fortunes of a card sharp, a former bandit leader and a luckless prospector intertwine with fatal consequences. This film offers a stellar cast, including Angus Wright (Rogue One, The Iron Lady, Peep Show, Flowers), Kevin Horsham (Game of Thrones), Farren Morgan (Brimstone) and Lesley Ewen (The X Files, Dr Who). It also features an original score by Tom Hobden, a member of the popular band Noah and the Whale, and Eliot James – the music producer behind Bloc Party and Two Door Cinema Club.
About the Director: Charlie Brafman and Magnus McCullagh first met in 2005 in Nottingham University’s New Theatre company, where they collaborated on several projects. Magnus then left to train as an actor at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, whilst Charlie produced, wrote and directed a string of sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, garnering acclaim from The Independent and The Telegraph. After teaming up again to write a feature film commission in 2014, they started the production company ‘Strange Lightning’ in 2016. Shooting for their next feature film began in June 2019, with acclaimed director Lieven van Baelen at the helm.
