AN aspiring film maker has attracted more than 30 actors from across Waveney who want to bring moviemaking to the area.

Paul Easter is shooting gangster film Stagger around Lowestoft, Southwold, Beccles and Rushmere, and after he was featured in The Journal dozens of people came forward wanting to star in the film.

Now he is looking for a local sponsor for it, with the offer of a trailer on the DVD release.

So far he is only £6,000 off the full filming budget and is in talks with Ray Winstone's daughter Lois, with the possibility of her taking a role in the film. The movie centres on Jake, who takes revenge after organisers of illegal raves in London muscle in on the raves he organises in Norfolk and Suffolk.

Brit Films have already written a short review, posted on their website reviewing the film idea. It reads: “Paul Easter gives us a compact and hard-hitting gangster film in Stagger as we see hard case Jake dealing with some unfinished business over the matter of an outstanding debt while on the way to sort out a new getaway motor.

“No punches are pulled in this slice of well-filmed and produced underworld action.”

The 42-year-old is both behind the film's production with his company Films UK and is starring in it as the lead role.

Terry Boast, of Boast Industrial Park, is to put on catering for the shoot, which starts filming there on Saturday, September 6.

Tamer Hassan, star of The Business, Football Factory and Layer Cake is tipped to star, but there is still space available for five trained actor roles, which are left to cast.

If you are aged between 20 and 45 and are interested call Paul on 07833 583869.
