Britain’s #1 Page 3 girl Keeley Hazell’s first film ‘Venus and the Sun’ will be released in January 2011. Hazell plays the lead in a contemporary comic retelling of the classic VENUS AND ADONIS myth.
The film follows Keeley who thinks she’s solved all her problems by taking up an unexpectedly high-brow hobby: translating Latin. The language has given her magical powers, enabling her to ward-off the frenzied attention of her adoring fans, and the British Library offers an ideal refuge.
But when she meets Adam, the one Sun-reader in the country she hadn’t bargained for, Keeley is given a lesson in not judging books by their covers. Her journey of discovery will reveal just how far she’s come to rely on the advantages of fame.
Keeley is joined by a stellar British cast including comedy actor and esteemed writer Will Smith (THE THICK OF IT) and Ukweli Roach, star of hit film STREETDANCE 3D.
‘Venus and The Sun’ is directed by Adam Randall, director of the award-winning HOODED and EASIER WAYS TO MAKE A LIVING; original screenplay written by theatre writer Reuben Grove (HIDDEN LIGHT) and film produced by Andy Brunskill (Assistant Producer TAMARA DREWE, THE OTHER BOLEYN GIRL, THE MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS)
