Whirrrr is a new movie currently in production which Phapamichael will direct. The script is also written by him and his close friend, Sven Dagones. Greek actor Renos Charalampides will star as a 40 something adult who still remains a child at heart. He is married to a model, but he always believes that she cheats on him. This time his obsession is that she has an affair with the handsome goal keeper of the Greek soccer team Olympiakos. When he learns that Olympiakos will play a game in Istanbul he takes the plane to follow the team, and hopes that he will catch his wife sleeping with the goalkeeper. However, after his plane has landed in Istanbul the game is cancelled because of a snowstorm. Another character of the film is named Nick. Nick is an American- Georgian who owns a small furniture business in Vienna. He is coming back from a business trip to Kazakhstan and stops to Istanbul where in a hotel lobby he will meet Charambides, and both will spend the night playing backgammon and talk about everything. During this night they decide to take the train and go together to Thessaloniki because Renos will have to return to Greece and Nick has to find a way to go to Vienna. Their journey will be full of surprises that will add meaning to their lives… In an older interview with the Greek Hollywood Reporter Phedon had described the film as a comedy with real elements from his everyday life as well as biographical elements of Charalampides’ life. We recognize one their passion for backgammon.
