The drama about a group of men corrupted by greed will be directed by Giles Borg.

Rupert Everett, Tom Felton and Derek Jacobi are set to starring Lead Heads, the upcoming feature from Giles Borg (1234, Flutter).

The three join an ensemble cast that also includes Luke Newberry (Anna Karenina), Mark Williams (Harry Potter, Shakespeare in Love) and Olatunji Ayofe, who will make his big screen debut after graduating from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.

A drama about greed and the repercussions it has on the soul, Lead Heads centers on a group of men, strangers to one another but all corrupted by greed, who, in their desperation, are drawn together for one night to play a game that may cost them both their souls and lives. Principal photography is set to begin in London on March 22, 2021

Lawrence Steven Meyers, Randy Dannenberg and John Evangelides will produce the film, with Alexa Waugh (Black Ops) on board to line produce. The script was written by Patrick Makin (Happy Birthday, Toby Simpson, Savage Kingdom).

"We are thrilled to be working with Giles and such a strong ensemble of actors. While mounting production has proved difficult during these times, we are delighted to be able to film in London early next year," said Meyers of Meyers Media Group.

Added Borg: “I am very excited to get started on Lead Heads. It’s such a challenging, intriguing script, and this cast is primed to take on the material. I’m really looking forward to working with them all, along with Meyers Media Group.”
