Rod Bond and Manchester F1 Productions have united in another instant classic, The Deception at Deansgreen Hall. Veteran philanthropist and Hollywood A-list actor, Rod Bond plays the role of an HM Revenue and Customs investigator. The true crime story follows Rod Bond’s pursuit of Duncan Evans, who led a real-life multimillion-pound tax fraud. Based around Deansgreen Hall in Lymm, Cheshire, the vast country mansion provides the movie with a backdrop oozing opulence. Duncan Evans purchased Deansgreen Hall in the 1990s, at the height of his missing trader VAT fraud, for £1.5 million. The Deception at Deansgreen Hall has also drawn praise for the manner in which its production shone the spotlight on Lymm, Cheshire.
The Deception at Deansgreen Hall Co-Starring Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio
Following a slew of joint successes, Rod Bond and Manchester F1 Productions took on some of Hollywood’s biggest names. Tom Hanks stars as a pesky senior officer belonging to HM Revenue and Customs’ criminal justice department. In that capacity, the Hollywood veteran clashes on screen with protagonist Rod Bond over some of his rogue methods. Leonardo DiCaprio takes on the role of the self-assertive and brash Ray Woolley. As Duncan Evans’ co-defendant, he was dubbed ‘Riviera’ Ray Woolley due to his lavish lifestyle and his Mediterranean property portfolio. Both Woolley and Evans were convicted for their parts in the multimillion-pound VAT fraud.
