NEW PHOTOS: Another Era Of Crowley & Aziraphale As Good Omens Continues Filming In London

Image
The Good Omens shoot went time travelling today as the action took a step back to the 19th Century. The demon and angel duo of Crowley and Aziraphale, played by David Tennant and Michael Sheen, were strikingly different in appearance as the production moved into its second day of principal photography.

The apocalyptic comedy Good Omens centres on the final battle between Heaven and Hell, triggered by the arrival of the Antichrist on Earth. Caught up in the conflict are a stuffy angel-turned-bookdealer called Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and a fast living, houseplant-terrorising demon, Crowley (David Tennant) who have been living among the human race for so long - since the Beginning, in fact - that they've become rather fond of the planet and its inhabitants and, …

Image
The long-awaited release of David Tennant's movie Mad To Be Normal looks to be set for the USA as Samuel Goldwyn Films announce that they have picked up the distribution rights for the States. The news comes hot on the heels of David's co-star Elisabeth Moss's weekend Emmy win for her role in TV phenomenon The Handmaid's Tale, while David himself has been hitting the headlines as he begins work on the 2019 comedy drama Good Omens.

Mad To Be Normal was written and directed by Robert Mullen and is based on the life of maverick psychiatrist RD Laing, played by David Tennant. Laing's radical medication-free approach to treating mental illness put him at odds with the rest of the medical community throughout his career. In the late 1960s he set up a project in Kingsley Hall in London where people experiencing psychosis and medical staff lived together as equals, and it is this partially successful experiment that is explored in the movie. Elisabeth Moss plays Laing's…
