Shooting has commenced in Wales on Alice Lowe’s reincarnation rom-com Timestalker, a tale of one woman’s unrequited love spanning several centuries. Writer & director Alice Lowe (PREVENGE, SIGHTSEERS) stars in the lead role and is joined by a talented ensemble cast including Jacob Anderson (INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE, GAME OF THRONES), Aneurin Barnard (TIME, DAVID COPPERFIELD), Tanya Reynolds (SEX EDUCATION, EMMA) and Nick Frost (HOT FUZZ, PAUL).

Other newly announced cast members are Kate Dickie (THE WITCH, THE GREEN KNIGHT), Dan Skinner (NOTES ON BLINDNESS, THE KENNEDY’S), Mike Wozniak (MAN DOWN, HORRIBLE HISTORIES) who all starred in Lowe’s successful directorial debut PREVENGE which played at Venice, TIFF, London, AFI & SXSW. TIMESTALKER will again bring Lowe’s subversive, irreverent and hilarious dark sense of humour to film audiences in 2023.

TIMESTALKER follows hapless heroine Agnes (Alice Lowe) through time as she repeatedly falls for the wrong guy, dies a grim death, gets reincarnated a century later, before meeting him again and starting the cycle anew. It is one story told over many periods, all with the messy thrills and spills that come with daring to follow your heart. Or maybe your loins…

The cast recurs throughout each historical period depicted in the romantic comedy, as the film playfully travels in time. Audiences will enjoy seeing Alice’s heroine Agnes pursue the love of her many lives through various moments in history and into the future: 1680s Western Scotland; 1790s Rural England; 1980s Manhattan; and an apocalyptic 22nd Century.

With TIMESTALKER, Alice teams up again with PREVENGE producer Vaughan Sivell and Western Edge Pictures. Alice said, “This is such a magical project that has come together at the perfect time with the perfect cast and crew. It’s a time travelling journey we’re all on together and it feels extraordinary.”

TIMESTALKER is in co-production with Popcorn Group, and funded by the BFI (awarding National Lottery funding), Head Gear Films, Popcorn Group and Ffilm Cymru Wales with funding from the National Lottery and Welsh Government via Creative Wales.

Hanway Films have worldwide rights.
