Director of The Wicker Man Robin Hardy Dies

Posted July 2, 2016 by Eoin Friel in News

Robin Hardy, director of the horror classic The Wicker Man has sadly passed away at age 86.

According to the BBC “the 1973 film told the story of police sergeant Howie, played by Woodward, who was sent to search for a missing girl on the fictional island of Summerisle. Hardy, who went on to make follow-up The Wicker Tree in 2011, died on Friday, the friend said.

Last year, Hardy said he wanted to make a third Wicker Man film as a tribute to Sir Christopher. The Wicker Man was Hardy’s feature debut, and he went on to direct only two more feature-length films. The second, The Fantasist, came 13 years after his debut.”

The Wicker Man would be infamously remade a few years ago starring Nicolas Cage and is regarded as one of the most unintentionally hilarious films ever made.
