BBC One is rebooting its classic children’s sitcom Worzel Gummidge – here’s the first glimpse of Mackenzie Crook starring in the title role. His prosthetics were designed by Neill Gorton for Millennium FX Ltd. and several of our 7-week course graduates are part of his team on the two hour-long films, which Mackenzie is directing.
Mackenzie Crook has written this contemporary adaptation inspired by the books by Barbara Euphan Todd. For those who don’t know the character, Worzel Gummidge is a walking, talking scarecrow who causes trouble on Scatterbrook Farm. He was made famous in the 70s and 80s in the series starring former Doctor Who actor Jon Pertwee.
We can’t wait for more news on this!
