Happy New Year from Sean Bean Fans! What's Ahead for Sean in 2016

Thank you so much for reading this blog! Your continuing support is very appreciated, especially in thin years. I shall endeavour to keep articles as timely as possible. As mentioned on the Facebook post, so far, there is only one confirmed release for Sean in 2016 (Young Messiah), and a couple other productions remain on his slate as possibilites.

The Young Messiah

IMDb page: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1002563
Based on the fictional book Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt, by Anne Rice. Tells the story of Jesus Christ at age seven as he and his family depart Egypt to return home to Nazareth. Told from his childhood perspective, it follows young Jesus as he grows into his religious identity. Within this story, Sean plays a Roman centurion, Severus, but I'm still unsure of his exact purpose.

Releases in the US on 11th March and at Eastertide in UK.


Enemy of Man
IMDb page: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0338258
A war hero and the lure of ambition and decent into hell. An adaption of Macbeth.

Sean is playing the lead, Macbeth. Also supposed to star Charles Dance, Rupert Grint, James D'Arcy, to name a few, a very great cast if they can get it done!

Instruments of Darkness, a 10 minute short film that was made to sell the film project, was posted to YouTube by the soundtrack composer Chris Cooper: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hOBEzG-RrIk

Now listed at IMDb as "In Development" and I haven't seen an email update in quite some time. The production had a successful Kickstarter fundraiser, and last I heard it was supposed to be shooting now, winter 2016, but there has been no news.

The Untamed (Animated TV Series)
Based on The Untamed graphic novel by Sebastian A. Jones and Peter Bergting, Stranger Comics posted a pitch animation early last year which prominently featured a voiceover by Sean and with a tagline "Back from the dead" of which I'm sure they thought was very amusing. The art sure looks like Sean, at this point I'm assuming he remains involved with the production, but there's been no news since March 2015.


Here is THE UNTAMED trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9TT5G0p2gY


Sorry to say, that is it for new productions so far! I was hoping to hear something new announced during Sean's promotional appearances for the ongoing global rollout of THE FRANKENSTEIN CHRONICLES or from press at the Hollywood events he has recently attended, but there's nothing as yet. I'm hoping he is in talks right now for more work to be announced soon! Stay tuned & thanks again for reading!

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!!
