THANK GOD! Central City Media To Release Religious Satire SAY YOUR PRAYERS On Demand In The UK On September 28

02 September 2020


Today Central City Media is pleased to announce that it will release highly anticipated British comedy Say Your Prayers on demand in the UK from 28th September.

Written and directed by British filmmaker and comedian Harry Michell (Chubby Funny, Guinea Pig), produced by Helen Simmons (Chubby Funny, F*CK) and co-written by Jamie Fraser (Living The Dream, Pillow Talk), it stars a slew of homegrown talent including Harry Melling (Harry Potter franchise, The Lost City of Z, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs), Tom Brooke (Game of Thrones, The Death of Stalin, Bodyguard), Anna Maxwell Martin (Philomena, Motherland, Code 404), Roger Allam (The Thick of It, The Lady in the Van, Endeavour), Derek Jacobi (Gladiator, Good Omens), Vinette Robinson (Sherlock, The A Word) and Flora Spencer Longhurst (Unforgiven, The Maltese Connection).



Led by Harry Melling and Tom Brooke, two of Britain’s most promising up and coming actors spring boarding from major franchises such as Game of Thrones and Harry Potter, the duo play two radical Christian hitmen.

Orphaned brothers and Christian radicals, Tim and Vic, arrive in Ilkley with the relatively straightforward task of assassinating Professor John Huxley. However, after a classic case of mistaken identity, they find themselves having murdered the wrong man. Now stuck in the town during Ilkley's busiest weekend, they wait for the arrival of a foreboding mentor to give them instruction. The mission must still be completed - that's providing Vic’s rage, Tim’s doubts or the efforts of foul-mouthed Detective Inspector Brough don't get in the way first.



Executive producers include: Hugo Heppell, Roger Le Tissier, Frances Le Tissier, Andrew Orr, Kevin Loader, Rece Ltd, Bastien Sirodot, Adrian Politowski, Julien Loeffler, Fabrice Smadja, Charles Emberson, David Leigh, Jack Meeus, Amon Ziah Mahmud, Ben Bond, Harry Michell, Andy Brunskill, Matthew James Wilkinson and Farah Abushwesha.

The film is a Guinea Pig Production with Aimimage Production in association with Independent and Featuristic Films. Financing came from Screen Yorkshire, Ivy Gate Films, and Umedia.

Michell has a very distinctive comedy voice in the vein of Edgar Wright, Ben Wheatley and Ricky Gervais, and has previously been hailed as ‘a major new comedy talent,’ by HeyUGuys.

His critically acclaimed sketch group ‘Minor Delays’ have toured internationally and were one of the best reviewed shows in the British Comedy Guide of 2014 and 2015. ('Remarkable' **** The Telegraph/'Major Success' **** The Guardian/'Stars of the future' **** Mail on Sunday)

His first short film, GUINEA PIG, starring Stephen Mangan, premiered at the London Short Film Festival in 2015, and was nominated for the 'Funny Sh*t' Award.

Harry Melling started acting at the age of 10 in the Harry Potter films playing the role of Dudley Dursley.
In his mid-teens he joined the National Youth Theatre appearing in a number of shows including "The Master and Margarita". Harry at the age of 18 attended the LAMDA (London Academy Of Music and Dramatic Art.) He left early when offered to join the company of "Mother Courage and her Children" at the National Theatre alongside on-screen mother Fiona Shaw.

This kick started a long series of theatre roles which included Harold Pinter's "The Hothouse," the Old Vic Theatre's, "King Lear" opposite Glenda Jackson, and the lead in the West End transfer of hit show, "Hand To God."

Since his stint starring in Harry Potter (2001-2010), Melling has gone on to appear in The Lost City of Z (2016), The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018), The War of the Worlds (2019), The Devil all the Time (2020) and clinched a starring role in Say Your Prayers (2020).

Tom Brooke trained at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) and lives in London. Initially winning plaudits for theatre, Brooke won the TMA Award for best supporting actor for his performance in "The Long and the Short and the Tall" at the Lyceum Theatre, Sheffield in 2006.

After appearing in “Game of Thrones” in 2013, Tom went on to gain recognition for his roles in BBC's “Sherlock”, “The Death of Stalin” (2017), “Bodyguard” (2018) and Amazon Prime’s “Preacher” (2016-19).
