Dear All.

    Again apologies for not keeping you up to date in regards to progress with Enemy of Man.  

We have new producers on board and the budget has been drastically reduced as it became unfeasible to continue at the same finance level after Michael Fassbender's Macbeth was released. We hope to release a statement to the press over the next few days. I can confirm that Rupert Grint has also confirmed his continued involvement in the project which will of course help us in pulling together the finance.

I was not personally involved in the distribution of some of the rewards (T shirts/posters) as I was out of the country. These were left undelivered and for this I apologise. I have now tracked down the T shirts and will take personal responsibility in getting these out to people along with the posters. Production based rewards will of course depend on us finally getting our film off the ground and completed.

Thank you for your patience and once again sorry for the lack of updates.

Update on Sean

Once again, apologies for keeping you in the dark for so long. I have been working away behind the scenes trying to get the project back on track since the Justin Kurzel/Michael Fassbender Macbeth torpedoed us below deck!!!

The good news is that Sean is back on board and looking forward to playing Macbeth. I believe now some time has passed audience and critics will be prepared to look at the material with fresh eyes.

I was hoping to announce our Lady Macbeth but alas that is no longer the case and the search still continues.

I have at last tracked down the T shirts and along with the posters I hope to have them all delivered in time for Christmas.

I will also be meeting new investors soon and will have a better idea as to when we will eventually go into production.  

I will make every effort to keep you all informed of my progress and I know how frustrating it has been for you all not having updates. I apologise for this unreservedly.

Unlike other Kickstarter projects this a behemoth and succeptible to all the vagaries of the film industry. It is a marathon and not a sprint.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.

We have been having technical difficulties with the sound mix for the digital download/DVD but these issues are being currently fixed and we hope to have  them sent to you along with all the other pre production rewards in due course.

We have had an offer for full finance for the feature which is great news but unfortunately we have missed our spring window for Sean Bean as he has  work commitments in the USA until autumn. We aim to commence production as soon as he becomes available.

We will release information of our funding source following a press release and of course we will keep you all informed.

Thank you for your patience during this phase of the film making process; it is often a frustrating time.
