HORRID HENRY 3-D Movie Begins Production

Production has begun on Horrid Henry: The Movie, a 3-D live-action movie based on Francesca Simon’s hugely successful children’s chapter book series of the same name.

The first ever British kids’ movie to be filmed in 3-D, Horrid Henry: The Movie has an all-star cast. The movie stars:
Anjelica Huston as Henry’s terrifying teacher Miss Battle-Axe
Rebecca Front as Henry’s headmistress Mrs. Oddbod
Richard E Grant as a rival headmaster
Parminder Nagra as Miss Lovely
Noel Fielding as Killer Boy Rats’ frontman Ed Banger
Jo Brand as the Demon Dinner Lady
Matthew Horne as Henry’s dad
Prunella Scales as Great Aunt Greta

The film will introduce young stars Scarlett Stitt as Moody Margaret, Ross Marron as Perfect Peter, and Theo Stevenson as Horrid Henry. In the movie, we’ll see “Horrid Henry, Lord High Majesty of the Purple Hand Gang, waging his ever constant battle against the tyranny of adults, only this time it seems the adults really are out to get him!”

Horrid Henry was created by author Francesca Simon and is the most successful children’s literary character in the UK after Harry Potter, with book sales of more than 16 million.

Horrid Henry: The Movie is currently being filmed in London and will be released in Summer 2011.
