The Silence set visit and USA trip

November 8th, 2017 • Posted in Movie News, Random Stuff |

I’m just back from a very exciting trip to Toronto, where I visited set of The Silence movie. It was a strange, surreal and frankly brilliant experience, and I’ll write about it in a lot more detail closer to the movie’s release date (no spoilers here!).

Suffice to say, I was made to feel very welcome by all involved, and it was fantastic to meet everyone there.  I met so many people that names became a blur, but special shout out to director John Leonetti, genuinely one of the nicest guys.  It was a real pleasure to watch a true professional at work.

And then there was Stanley Tucci (see pic) and Kiernan Shipka, two lovely people who I’m so thrilled are in the movie. I didn’t meet the rest of the superb cast (details here) — they weren’t there for the scenes being filmed — but the visit cemented my belief that the book is in the best hands possible.  I firmly believe it’s going to be THE horror movie of 2018. Watch this space for more.

After Toronto, I flew to Boston. It was great to visit my American brother Christopher Golden and his family, see loads of old friends at the Merrimack Valley Halloween Book Festival, and then stop off in New York on the way home. I spent some time with my excellent agent Howard Morhaim, and had a load of really productive meetings with editors.

The trip of a lifetime. Loads more about the movie soon, but meantime why not check out the book before it hits the big screen?

Take it easy.
