National treasure and Knight of the Realm David Jason is to star in Sky One‘s £6m adaptation of Hogfather, one of Terry Pratchett‘s best-selling Discworld books.
Jason plays Albert, Death’s manservant. Hogfather, aka Santa (sort of), disappears and Death takes over. Oh, don’t ask me… read the Wiki.
The film is Sky One’s biggest-ever drama commission, and its first in HD. It begins shooting in April in Romania, with Leon the Pig Farmer director Vadim Jean at the helm. Set the vid for Dec 2006.
