For years, fans have been asking for a sequel to one of the first films exploring the fetish scene: Preaching to the Perverted (P2TP).
In 2013 it became the first European movie restored and revived by Kickstarter fans.
After the release of Fifty Shades of Grey, P2TP was rated as one of the 10 best films on BDSM/fetishism by The Guardian, 2015.
Fast forward to 2016 and P2TP's writer/director Stuart Urban, fresh from writing and exec producing the ratings and critical triumph of ITV miniseries The Secret (starring James Nesbitt) has come up with the idea for the sequel, and we're going to explore it first in a graphic novel.
Those that know P2TP will remember the very last scene where Peter was singing a lullaby to his baby daughter. Well, almost 20 years have gone by and Stuart has come up with this idea:
How do you imagine Artemis, daughter of Tanya (the dominatrix) and Peter (the devout Christian), will turn out to be when she reaches adulthood?
What has happened in her upbringing, and what will be her interests and orientation as she steps out into the big wide world? Beautiful and intelligent, Artemis is like a hybrid of Lady Gaga and Alice in Wonderland. She is going to enter the helterskelter, hypocrite-heavy World of Westminster and the seat of UK political power...
Fans of the first movie will be excited that original stars Guinevere Turner (Tanya) , Christen Anholt (Peter) and Julie Graham (Eugenie) are all up to reprise their characters, some two decades on down life's journey. Ricky Tomlinson of The Royle Family is also up to return as horrible hack Fibbin' Gibbins.
By participating in this campaign you will personally be playing your part and putting vital funds into the development of the movie, as well as getting your fabulous rewards!
The graphic novel offers a chance to tell the story and perfect it before we set out to raise funds for the actual movie sequel. It will be produced to a high standard (see below), written directly by Stuart Urban, who will work with his longtime collaborator and P2TP comic book and storyboard veteran, Mick Harrison.
