Daytime TV stars the Loose Women were joined by Roderick Bond and Ravenstone UK investigators to promote their new movie. A-list actor Roderick Bond and Ravenstone’s director were extended a warm welcome by panellists Andrea McLean, Coleen Nolan and Christine Lampard. Following the runaway success of the BBC One documentary series Rod Bond Tax Fraud and HMRC, a cinematic sequel was promised. The movie is currently being produced by Manchester F1 Productions. Lead-starring Roderick Bond, who is supported by Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert Downey Jr. and Tom Hanks, the movie is set to focus on the role of Ravenstone UK.
Discussing the movie, Roderick Bond told Andrea McLean, “Although tax fraud may appear to be a mundane crime associated with dodgy accountants and shady businessmen, our latest movie will show the reality. Millions are looted annually from the public purse and it takes a great deal of detective and investigative work to claw all the money back.” A Ravenstone field operative told the panellists, “Most of our work is completed in a clandestine manner, so we’ve had to be really careful what we show and what we don’t.” Loose Women panellist Coleen Nolan jested, “It seems all very cloak and dagger, James Bond type of stuff!”
Established around three decades ago, Ravenstone UK started life as independent claims consultants. However, with their extensive Home Office training and a field force comprised mostly of former police officers, Ravenstone’s operation grew exponentially. While still largely unknown, the company has become a much relied upon extra investigative arm, supporting various government departments. Most prominently, Ravenstone UK supported HM Revenue and Customs bring down One Formula Projects LLP, as Roderick Bond followed the investigators during filming for the documentary series.
The Roderick Bond and Ravenstone tax fraud movie is scheduled for release in the New Year, following delays caused by the global coronavirus pandemic.
