Ben Cura Announces Kickstarter Campaign for UK Film adaptation of Strindberg's play "Creditors" starring BAFTA-nominated Christian McKay

Kickstarter campaign to launch in October 2013

LONDON, Aug. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Actor Ben Cura ("Comes a Bright Day", "Trance", "Dream On") is launching a Kickstarter Campaign in October to raise funds for "Creditors", film adaptation of August Strindberg's comedy/drama play starring BAFTA-nominated Christian McKay ("Me and Orson Welles", "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy", "Rush"), Andrea Deck ("The Counselor", "Singularity", "Paganini: The Devil's Violinist") and Ben Cura himself who will also direct, as well as having penned the screenplay.


"Creditors" is the story of a love triangle that finds itself unraveled when an American painter, Freddie Lynch (Ben Cura), whose career and marriage are in decline is approached by an admirer, Grant Pierce (Christian McKay), in a secluded hotel on an island in England and eased into making sense of his troubled relationship with his wife, writer Chloe Fleury (Andrea Deck).

Also currently attached are director of photography Ben Hecking ("Hinterland", "Hide and Seek"), and tenor/conductor José Cura, whose symphonic works will be featured as part of the film's music.

The Kickstarter Campaign will launch in October this year. The film will be produced under Tough Dance, a company founded by Ben Cura and Andrea Deck. Pending a successful crowd-funding campaign, filming is estimated to begin on location in Osea Island, England, sometime in the spring next year.

"Creditors" will mark Ben Cura's debut as a director and scriptwriter, and in his words he has decided to go down the crowd-funding route "because it is probably the most failsafe way to preserve your film's integrity while involving a great bunch of people you're excited to share the experience of making the movie with".

Tough Dance was founded in 2013. Creditors is the company's first project. For more information about the project and company, go to
