Dirty Tuppence – The Movie
Legendary drummer “Egg”, AKA Percy Gash-Hound (Warren Speed), is having to start his life afresh due to a very indelicate accident and it’s highly publicised aftermath, which saw him kicked out of the multi-million selling rock band Bad Penny, and also confined to a wheelchair.
After a year of extravagance and excess Egg has now spent all of his £3M fortune and needs a new income. So he teams up with his voluptuous new carer Brody (who also happens to be a mean bassist), and his vertically challenged twin brother Maynard (on guitar) … and together they begin auditioning for a charismatic lead singer for their new band Dirty Tuppence (a Bad Penny tribute act). Although, how Egg plans to drum when he can’t move his legs is something he is yet to work out!
Curve balls are added in the form of humans such as wannabe serial killer Derek Pendulous, bickering Private Investigators Jack Fire & Emily Brimstone, Otis the talking Great Dane, Fizzy Pop the high kicking mystical vocalist, Ulysses Twist and his weird clipboard fetish, Axl & Slash from tribute band G2R, a Freddie Mercury lookalike (played by John Blunt), and Egg’s overly conscientious bodyguard Maurice Tinkler.
Dirty Tuppence – The Movie is a topsy-turvy roller-coaster of a movie injected with a quirkiness and peculiarity that only a personality like Warren could imagine – and then bring to life.
Warren Speed says, “I’ve dreamed of making movies since I was twelve years old, so for me the last nine years have been amazing even though everything has been on a very low level. However, with Dirty Tuppence – The Movie I feel that we finally have a strong enough script and such an exciting cast that there is a great opportunity to produce something in a totally different league!”
Intended cast include:
Pete Bennett – Winner of Big Brother Series 7 (2006)
Dani Divine – International Fetish Model and Live Performer
Kataxenna – International Fetish Model and Live Performer
Axl and Slash from Guns 2 Roses – Guns N’ Roses leading tribute act
Colin Cuthbert – Matt Lucas double
Faye Ormston – Popular Geordie actress
George Newton – “This Is England”
Otis – the 6’ 6” Great Dane
Warren Speed – legend
The main shoot locations for Dirty Tuppence will be shared between central London and the North East of England where the production company is based. Depending on the time needed to create the special effects, the team hope to begin the main shoot in February 2018.
