Feature Filming in Manchester
What links Manchester with Nicole Kidman, Jude Law, Guy Pearce and Colin Firth? Probably a few things but right now it might be the upcoming 2015 release; Genius.
We’ve received a letter from Location Manager supremo Jonah Coombes (he found places for 28 Weeks Later; and the straight to DVD-esque ‘LOL’) explaining that there’ll be a film crew outside our office building in the next couple of weeks.
The feature length Genius is ‘set in 1930s New York and, in it being shot entirely in present day England, Manchester is set to play the principle role for all the exterior parts.’
Despite their sentence forming being slightly off, it sounds like a big film production with some big stars are coming to the North. Our advice, bring an umbrella.
You heard it here first, if it happens we’ll try and post some photos, if it doesn’t we’ll delete this post and deny all knowledge.
In the meantime, here’s the first photo.
So it did happen, it was exciting, Jude Law is a handsome man.
