Wrapping up the year: what’s shooting in London
Date posted: 07.12.2016
The chilly weather and beginning of the holiday season have not slowed down crews just yet; shooting is still in full effect in London and we are getting excited about some great new films and TV series being released in 2017.
Some of Britain’s best-loved actors are shooting in the capital this month for Eclipse Films’ Finding Your Feet, a romantic comedy about a judgmental snob (Imelda Staunton) who discovers that her husband is having an affair with her best friend. Forced into exile with her estranged bohemian sister who lives in an impoverished inner-city council estate, she finds her aspirational world turned upside down as she approaches retirement. Other members of the cast include Celia Imrie, Timothy Spall, Joanna Lumley, and David Hayman. Set to be released in 2017, the film is directed by Richard Loncraine and written by Meg Leonard and Nick Moorcroft.
Several television productions have also begun filming this month in London. Production on series four of Netflix’s Black Mirror, created by Charlie Brooker, and the third series of Catastrophe, created by stars Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney, have hit the ground running in the final month of 2016, while JK Rowling adaptation The Cormoran Strike Mysteries, Channel 4’s Loaded, BBC One’s McMafia, and ITV’s Liar have also started shooting in the capital.
Meanwhile, production continues on Paddington 2, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Transformers: The Last Knight, Vince Flynn adaptation American Assassin, The Children Act, Disney’s The Nutcracker and The Four Realms, Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool, and Liam Neeson crime thriller The Commuter.
TV productions still shooting in the capital this month include Netflix’s The Crown 2, marital drama Doctor Foster, Lucky Man 2, A Man in an Orange Shirt, and ITV thriller Fearless.
