Chiwetel Ejiofor directs

Updating this site is rather like a London bus - nothing for ages and then 3 come together at once ...

A rather short piece from the 18 June edition of The Guardian has come my way courtesy of Screen International regarding Chiwetel Ejiofor's directorial debut.

Mr Ejiofor's contribution to the 'Verse requires no introduction and we all know that he has become one of the most hardworking UK actors in the industry today. I'm rather pleased to say that thanks to Katy, I was able to see Mr Ejiofor in the recent Donmar production of "Othello" in January with Ewan McGregor which was utterly incredible; I understand that there will be an audio release of the production shortly which I can't recommend enough. However, the piece in The Guardian has Mr Ejiofor recounting his directing experience and can be found here:,,2286130,00.html

The short, "Slapper" will screen as part of the UK Shorts programme at the 2008 Edinburgh International Film Festival on 24 June.
