Shoot dates for Country Music film
A new feature about an aspiring country music singer from Glasgow is currently eyeing a summer shoot in the UK.
Country Music comes from producer Faye Ward’s fledgling shingle, Fable Pictures, and has a screenplay by The C Word writer Nicole Taylor.
The film marks the directorial feature debut of theatre director and playwright Dominic Cooke. Karen Gillan is lined up to star as the young singer who dreams of performing in Nashville.
On Production Intelligence subscribers will find details of the co-producer, location manager and casting director, with updates to follow as pre-production approaches.
Fable Pictures is also working on the much-anticipated Laurel and Hardy biopic, Stan and Ollie, which is set to star Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly. On Production Intelligence we will be confirming shoot dates and crucial hires as they board the project.
