Straightheads is a forthcoming feature film co-financed by Screen West Midlands and filmed on location in the area. Due for release in April the trailer emerged last week and has gone down very well on YouTube, presumably because the film stars Gillian Anderson whose online fanbase is not insubstantial.

A dark and sexually charged thriller, Straightheads is the debut feature from director Dan Reed who, according to Film Birmingham, honed his skills as a filmmaker in the city during the 1990s. He’s running a Straightheads Blog where he’s currently rather blown away by the success of the trailer but there’s a lot of other interesting stuff on there too.
