British Lion completes post on Hardy's The Wicker Tree
British Lion has completed post-production on Robin Hardy’s TheWicker Man follow-up, The Wicker Tree.
Hardy has reunited with British Lion CEO Peter Snell, who produced the 1973 cult horror story, for the contemporary tale about two Texan Christians who travel to the Scottish fiefdom of Tressock to spread the gospel.
Graham McTavish plays the sinister laird Lachlan Morrison who presides over Tressock and the cast includes newcomer Brittania Nicol, Henry Garrett, Clive Russell, Honeysuckle Weeks and Jacqueline Leonard.
Christopher Lee, who famously played Lord Summerisle in the original, has a cameo.
“The Wicker Tree is a chilling contemporary take on the genre,” Snell said. “We have a very strong cast, wonderful locations and like The Wicker Man, music plays a pivotal role in the story-telling.
