Wild West by North East
Contribute to support quality local journalism
A COWBOY film shot entirely in the North East will be receiving its premier next month.
Attack on Tranquillity tells the tale of what happens when a gang of desperadoes ride into Sheriff Garrett's frontier town with bad intentions in mind.
Amongst the cast is Dufftown resident Darren 'Dudley' Wiseman.
The 36-year-old, who plays one of the townsfolk, said: "It was really fun to make. I loved every minute.
"Although, as the whole film was shot within just four days, it was very intense and hard work as well."
Darren's day job is as a precision engineer at Standfast in Craigellachie.
However, it's the third movie in which the self-confessed film fanatic has appeared on screen.
Two year ago Darren had a part in Band of Outlaws, another North East cowboy film which was also shot at Tranquility Wild West Town near the Glendronach Distillery in Forgue.
He said: "I got a bit of teasing at first from friends and family after I was in Band of Outlaws. But then they saw it and were pleasantly surprised about how good it was."
Then, last year, he played an enemy clansman attacking Robert the Bruce during the movie Outlaw King which featured the Scottish acting stalwart James Cosmo.
Attack on Tranquillity will premier at the Belmont Cinema in Aberdeen on Sunday, May 5, at 10am.
