SEIZE THEM! is a female led comedy set in dark ages Britain that is funny, tender and outrageous. Queen Dagan (Wood) is master of all she surveys, with an ego to match – until she’s toppled by a revolution led by the charismatic Humble Joan (Coughlan). The Queen becomes a fugitive in her own land, a hefty bounty on her head. With the help of Shulmay (Adefope), a former servant with a lot of secrets – and Bobik (Frost), a shit-shoveler who wants more out of life – Queen Dagan must face every conceivable hardship and danger as she embarks on a voyage to win back her throne. She also has to face up to the very worst parts of herself. Can she become Queen again? And can she become a better person while she does it? And what if she has to choose?

Producer Damian Jones, had this to say:

“We are very excited to be working with the funniest young actresses around today in Aimee, Lolly and Nicola as well as the epic Nick Frost and Jess Hynes. Backed by one of the best distributors in the UK in Nigel Green and EFD we feel privileged to be bringing this project to the big screen.”

Frost added:

“The chance to shoot in Wales, the land of my Fathers, with Aimee and Lolly saying the terrific words, out loud, that Andy Riley has written, was a sweet temptation I found hard to resist.”

SEIZE THEM! shoots over 6 weeks in Kent and Wales, we’ll bring you more as and when…
