Writers Retreat (2015)

Rupert appears as Alisdair in the film Writers Retreat made by MoliFilms Entertainment with director Diego Rocha.

excitable update: This film has finally scored a distributor in the US and will be available on 17 April 2018! Huzzah!

You can watch a trailer here on the film’s Facebook page. It seems that Rupert is one of the leaders of the writers group.

The film is available for sale from Amazon US only, it seems, so if you can play a Region 1 DVD you’re in luck. Or if you’re in the right part of the world, you can watch it via Prime Video.

Here’s a screen grab from the trailer…

It’s listed on IMDB as ‘drama horror thriller’ with a 2015 release. So far, it seems to have had only one screening, on 16 October 2015, at a film festival in Spain: SITGES – International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia. The film’s page on the festival website is here.

The film’s Facebook page currently states ‘Coming to theatres summer 2016’, but alas it seems that was overly optimistic!

Let’s keep our fingers crossed that we’ll get to see this soon, and that Rupert is at least given a memorable death scene!

This Love (2012)

Rupert features as the Other Man in this short film which was accepted for the Short Film Corner 2012 at the Cannes Film Festival! His Company co-star Poppy Roe also stars.

  • Filmed in January 2012

Just Because You’re Paranoid… (2009)

Rupert starred as Derek in this short film, a delightfully funny two-hander with Ian McNeice.

  • Made for the UK Film Council in April 2009
  • Director: Thomas Grove Carter

P.S. The date of the first of the month is approximate, but it was definitely made in April 2009.

still researching…

This is a list of Rupert’s work that we’re still researching – things we’ve heard about or seen glimpses of, but don’t have enough confirmed details about to post. If you can help us with more information and links or images, we’d very much appreciate it!


  • The Ministry, a film by Ben Kent, featuring Rupert and Jasmine Hemsley – the team who brought us Helen and Ben!
  • Rupert filmed something in England in November 2013 for a project to be released in 2014 … though we still don’t know what! And he didn’t seem all that certain that he wouldn’t end up on the cutting room floor. {sad face}
  • Rupert filmed a movie in the US in 2015. No further details yet, but this was mentioned in an interview, and he mentions ‘a new comedy-drama’ in another interview.
  • Rupert was off on a new work project as of early December 2016, though we don’t know what! Perhaps the Bet Victor ad…?


  • Feeding Time at the BAC (Battersea Arts Centre) perhaps from ? to 11 December 2005.
  • Three’s a Crowd at the Shepherd Churchill Hall.

As I said above, any help would be awesome!
