If you have been following the news, you probably know that on October 24 last year Ghost Stories began filming. A month later they wrapped filming and post-production began. Since then, there wasn’t any other news nor piece of information regarding this project.
However, today the London Film Festival lineup has been revealed and we are happy to inform that Ghost Stories is one of the films that are going to be premiering during the festival.
On BFI’s website we have the following page dedicated for Ghost Stories. There you will find the first image for this new film:

Let’s remember that Martin is going to be playing Mark Priddle and is one of the 3 unresolved cases of the Occult Andy Nyman’s (who stars and is one of the directors) character Phillip Goodman – an academic and professional sceptic that is out to debunk anything supernatural – comes across with after an encounter with a parapsychologist.
The film is directed by Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman and is a throwback to classic Brit horror stories from the 70s. It finally comes to the big screen after being on the stage some time ago and scaring more than one of the spectators. The producers are Claire Jones and Robin Gutch. The film is said to be 98 minutes long and is distributed by Lionsgate.

Martin was spotted attending the book launch of “The Jam In Echoed Steps a Vision Of Albion”. This was held at Holborn Studios in London, yesterday August 17th during the evening.
The only photos we have of that day were some from social media, which we’ve uploaded into our Photo Gallery.
Martin and The Magic Mod
You probably remember Martin’s photoshoot taken by photographer Andy Gotts. Look at a couple of them:
Remember? Great! We knew it. It seems that Mr Gotts is gifting us a new old photo from that photoshoot so we’ve added it to our Photo Gallery and you can visit the album.
James Graham – writer of Martin’s new play Labour of Love – has announced that they are beginning rehearsals for the play today. This confirms yesterday’s sighting on Primrose Hill, so we know that he has been in London since yesterday at least.
Not only that but also we have a location thanks to Mr Newby who is in charge of set and costume, who published on his instagram that they are rehearsing on Jerwood Space.
Let’s hope we get some photos of the rehearsals!
Martin is leaving his mark in Glasgow as more sightings are made and shared on social media. Only last night he was clubbing at a place called The Buff Club (known in Glasgow for being The place to go to for funk & soul dj sets). It was hip-hop night and he apparently danced the night away.
Today he was seen sans beard (just a bit of stubble), his regular cap and glasses at a restaurant.
We imagine he must be getting back to London pretty soon as rehearsals for Labour of Love should be starting.
Back in May 2017 we heard that Martin flew from Puerto Rico (after filming his scenes for Cargo) to Mallorca (or Majorca if you want to be English about it), a beautiful island in Spain. There, the production team in charge, filmed on location of one of the most (if not the most) impressive mansions of Spain called “Sa Fortalesa” in Pollença (a town located to the north of the island) a couple of ads for the new campain for Vodafone/Ogilvy.
Today’s update: These last couple of days, Martin was seen filming in Glasgow a new ad for Vodafone. Reports indicate that they were filming in a chapel called Christ The King. We are speculating that this ad is probably the Christmas one they intented to shoot considering Martin will be busy with his new play starting September through December.
If you continue reading you will find more information as well as links to all the videos so far. We’ve also uploaded some of the campain photos and some from social media published by the actors that worked with Martin on this project.

The premise: A man suffers from a serious disease that causes acute narcolepsy whenever he is happy. The man develops a variety of techniques to deny himself pleasure and deal with the sleep issues, but they’re put to a big test when he falls in love.
Behind the film adaptation based on a segment from public radio’s This American Life Are Jason Winer, Helmer of Warner Bros’ recent Arthur remake and many episodes of ABC’s Modern Family, and to be scripted by Max Werner, a writer on The Colbert Report.
We’ve uploaded some photos taken from social media to our Gallery from filming locations:
