Noel Clarke films in London and Atlanta
Noel Clarke’s next feature as writer is 10 x 10, which is now in pre-production readying for a mid-January shoot.
The low-budget cat-and-mouse kidnap thriller stars Luke Evans and Kelly Reilly in a story set in Georgia, US. There will be three weeks’ filming in the London area first, which the makers are doubling for the Atlanta area, before a final week’s shooting in the States.
