The film begins in a darkened MI6 precinct, an email is sent containing top secret information and by the following morning, everything has sprung into chaos. Normand Fisher, a top spy with a blistering migraine, is tasked with uncovering the identity of the mole, who can only be one of three suspects, all of whom work inside the service. A ludicrous investigation involving deceit, interrogation and misplaced painkillers pushes Fisher to the brink of sanity as his headache tears him apart until finally, amidst breaking point, he solves it. Or does he?
"Visually, I want to adopt a filmic language that pays homage to the classic spy films of the 1960s and 70s and then begin to deconstruct and whittle away it’s niceties whilst our protagonist gradually loses control and the headache overpowers him, externalizing his interior space using camera and sound design to create a memorable sensory experience for the audience.
I want to ensure we take this opportunity to craft a film that packs a heavy comedic punch because comedy is one of the only genres that can have an instant emotional impact on the audience. The archetypal characters that populate the headquarters act as the vessel for the absurdist comedy, so performance is crucial in achieving our goal of being a laugh-a-minute film.
This project is so exciting because in a grand sense, the spy genre seems to have left our screens, but it’s a ripe time to tinker with its tropes and pitfalls due to some of its notoriety by our standards today (largely it’s treatment of female characters); there has never been a more opportune moment for quality pastiche."
