May Day, which is now the definitive title for the film which was previously known as Ridding of the Laddie, is now going ahead. The £11m project will start filming early next year around the Glasgow area, with some scenes to be shot in Texas.
Mr. Lee's role in this film will be similar to the one in the classic Wicker Man. His wife will be played by Vanessa Redgrave while Sean Astin will play the leading role. This film is not a sequel or a remake but there are similarities - it is a very scary film and the pagan revival is part of the plot.
May Day will be made by Hardy's Eurocentre Productions and British Lion, who produced The Wicker Man.
