'Camping' star David Tennant joins Emily Watson in psychological thriller 'Quicksand'
After playing a moderately normal character in 'Camping', Tennant is heading back to playing his off-track, quirky characters.
David Tennant has yet another project lined up for him in 2019. Following his breakout from "the type" with creators Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner's HBO show, 'Camping', Tennant has been taking up roles that are pretty much, unlike the characters that he has been playing for so long such as the Time Lord in 'Doctor Who', Barty Crouch Jr. in 'Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire', and his upcoming role in 'Good Omens' as Crowley.
Now, the 'Broadchurch' actor will be starring alongside Emily Watson in the psychological thriller, 'Quicksand', coming from the 'Humans and Troy: Fall of a City' director Mark Brozel. Marking Brozel's feature directorial debut, this revenge story is set to center around the British couple, Dan (played by Tennant) and Sarah (played by Watson) who dwell in their own paradise in the Mediterranean. However, their utopic world comes crashing down when their son is murdered by a local youth. In the string of unfortunate events that follow, a grief-stricken Dan is given the chance to avenge his son's death when a stranger asks for a price of his revenge...one more murder.
Scheduled to begin shooting in April on Crete, this revenge tragedy has been written by 'The Be All and End All' duo, Steve Lewis and Tony Owen, and is being produced by Rough Sea Productions’ Mark Lavender and Osiko Films’ Joel Scott-Halkes. Tannaz Anisi and Greg Schenz are executives producing for sales and finance outfit 13 Films, which is launching sales at the upcoming American Film Market. Peter Garde is also executive producing in cooperation with Indigo View. The movie marks the return of Tennant and Watson as an onscreen couple following the 2013 three-episode British miniseries, 'The Politician's Husband', which followed the troubled marriage of the Hoynes' (Aiden Hoynes played by Tennant and Freya Hoynes played by Watson).
Tennant has a lot to look forward to in 2019, as he is also set to star in BBC 2's adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett 1990 novel 'Good Omens'. The series, which holds the same title and is directed by Douglas Mackinnon, follows the angel Aziraphale (played by Michael Sheen) and the demon Crowley (played by Tennant) as they team up once again at a time when the world stands at the brink of an Apocalypse brought down by Heaven and Hell. The angel and demon, who have been looking after the human race for over thousands of years, come together to defeat the fateful purpose. The show is set to be released on Amazon Prime in 2019 and will be shown on BBC Two soon after.
