Red White and Blue out this Friday

This cheerful looking chap is Simon Rumley, Brit indie filmmaker. But don't let that dour expression fool you, he's actually a light hearted funster who wants nothing more than to tickle your funnybone and have you leave the cinema with a warm snuggly feeling about life. You know, like when you saw Notting Hill for the first time and genuinely thought "you know, perhaps Julia Roberts isn't that bad, and I quite like that Ronan Keating song, in context".
Simon has recently completed a film called Red, White and Blue, which is described as... hang on a minute, this guy isn't all sweet and lovely at all. It appears I've been misinformed. Red White and Blue, which opens in the UK this Friday, is a "psycho sexual thriller" (or to put it another way, "probably a bit rapey"). His next project is something called The Cherished One, a disturbing and dark thriller about a serial killer who uses his young daughter to entice his victims. Which sounds delightful.
And THEN he's planning on making a film called Stranger, which is produced by Mark Foligno, who made the heartwarmingly sweary The King's Speech, and Bob Portal, who was involved in Red White and Blue. Stranger is a thriller chase movie located in the heart of rural China, inspired by Spielberg's E.T... sorry, Duel.
Just to add to this trinity of unholy horrors, he's also just completed filming an instalment of The ABC’s of Death in Suriname. Which sounds like a laugh a minute.
Apologies to Simon, who, like me, is probably wondering how sending me a grumpy photo of himself can result in a bizarre jokeless blog post about how he doesn't make films like Notting Hill. On a horror website blog. It's a stream of consciousness thing. I'll get bored now and the next dozen posts will be cut and pasted direct from the original press releases, just watch.
