"THE EMPTY HEADQUARTERS AFFAIR"
A wonderfully original fan flick spy drama that takes place in the re-imagined world of the original 1960's TV series, THE MAN FROM UNCLE.
This unique, feature length film is coming to the Varsity Theatre in Ashland on Sunday, July 20, 2014. Show time is 9:40am. A Q & A with the film makers will follow.
Ashland’s Paul Richards takes viewers on an intelligent, immersive ride with fascinating characters, an intricate plot, and original UNCLE gadgets. Fans of the original series will be thrilled to see the classic famed UNCLE Special firearm featured in the movie, at times firing live ammunition. The famed "sleep dart" convertible weapon developed for the series in the 60's never actually functioned-it was a futuristic prop. Fifty years would pass before a functional version was created--by the makers of this film.
The functional UNCLE Special is used throughout the film, and a "Making of" section after the closing credits makes it clear that this remarkable feature was a miracle of creativity by a team of unpaid enthusiasts whose work far surpassed any reasonable expectation, given their insurmountable obstacles.
Filmed in the Virgin Islands, Hawaii, aboard a military transport plane, and on a sunken wreck, it is a remarkable story of inspiration, daring, teamwork, and most of all, love.
