The young cast includes Jessica Barden, Jacob Anderson, Sophie Stuckey, Duane Henry, Calum MacNab and Adam Deacon as six tearaway teenagers who break into an abandoned, condemned tower block to make mischief and party.
Mercy Point, a high-rise tower block conceived and built in the sixties, condemned in the nineties. Abandoned by all, it is now home to a brooding malevolence, and what resides within its empty floors is truly terrifying.
LLOYD (Jacob Anderson) a young man in his early 20′s, is facing the reality of fatherhood, determined to rise above the pervading knife culture and bleak environment he calls home. He’s back after time away in jail, reunited with the crew he left behind: GARY (Calum MacNab) – pyromaniac joker of the pack, JASON (Adam Deacon) – Lloyd’s Alpha male rival, COL (Duane Henry)– Jason’s slow-witted lackey with a crush on; KELLY (Jessica Barden) – boisterous and text obsessed, joined at the hip to; JEMMA (Sophie Stuckey) – Lloyd’s pregnant girlfriend.
A deranged tenant (played by Geoff Bell) living a solitary existence, is on a mission to eradicate what he sees as vermin invading his home. And just like rats the kids can run, they can hide, but no one knows this tower like this tenant...
Comedown is due for release later this year.
Tom, originally from Bath, is a graduate of CSSD and played Brett Aspinall in two of the early series of Waterloo Road, as well as starring as George Best in the ITV drama Best:His Mother's Son. He has recently been seen as a regular as in HBO's acclaimed series Luck, and will be seen later this year in Hiam Abbass's directorial debut, Inheritance.
In the new film, Tom will play the leading role of physician Rob Cole, who searches for the scientific truth of illness and healing in a medieval world dominated by religion and superstition.
Oscar-winner Kingsley will play Ibn Sina, the so-called “doctor of all doctors” while Skarsgard, seen most recently in Disney/Marvel blockbuster The Avengers, will play Barber, Rob Cole’s first mentor.
Shooting on The Physician is set to start in Morocco and Germany next month.

300 was the hugely successful adaptation of the cult graphic novel series by Frank Miller and Lynn Varley set in ancient Greece, featuring an epic array of Persians, Spartans and Greeks.
Calisto, a 16 year old whose desire to become the heroic man/soldier his father was, leads him to become the leader of a small band of soldiers. The film will also star Eva Green as Artemisia, and Australian actor Sullivan Stapleton as Themistocles.
Jack himself recently had to drop out of a role in Beautiful Creatures filming in the US due to visa issues, which may well have made him once again available for 300.
Represented by Conway Van Gelder, he will next be seen this year in the Michael Morpugo adaptation Private Peaceful, and then in The Liability.

JULIEN has quite a complex form of CP, and the film centres around his and his father's decision to compete in an Iron Man contest together. The director is a French documentary film maker who has worked a lot with families who care for a child with a disability, so the inspiration for the story came through that.
They are looking to cast a boy of around 18 years old who has cerebal palsy to play the part of JULIEN. The film is being shot this summer in France. There will be no need for the boy to be able to speak French as JULIEN will use a communication device. The director is incredibly keen to cast someone who genuinely lives with cerebral palsy, and not an actor 'acting' it, so they have expanded the search to the UK.
KCC would like to reach out to as many boys who live with cerebal palsy in the UK as possible.
Please note that they do not require the boys to have had any experience in acting or performance before.
Notes on the character JULIEN
Julien has quite a complex form of Cerebral Palsy, he uses an electric wheelchair and because he has limited speech, also uses a communication device. Julien is 18 years old, so we are looking for a boy who could pass for that age. Julien’s intelligence is unaffected by his cerebral palsy.
Please feel free to go to the Kahleen Crawford Casting web site to see who they are.
If you are interested, please send a couple of photos (one full length, one close up) along with a little info i.e age, where you live, hobbies and interests etc to:
If they think you might be suitable for the part, they will get back in touch with you and take it to the next stage.
Ideally the boys should be aged 14 - 16 years old from the Bradford area with horse-riding skills.
To apply email email@example.com.
