Filming gets underway on Collateral
Filming gets underway this week on David Hare’s Collateral, starring Carey Mulligan.
The four-part BBC drama is from The Forge and marks Hare’s returns to television: his work was last seen on the small screen in 2014 when he adapted the Johnny Worricker Spy trilogy for BBC Two.
Collateral is also for the BBC – little else is known about the drama’s content and setting other than as described on Deadline as "a modern-day state of the nation project which takes place over four days".
PI subscribers can log in for details on the key production hires including the line producer, casting director, production co-ordinator and production manager.
It’s a busy time for The Forge as they have two other projects in production concurrently. John Brownlow’s adaptation of Jessie Burton’s The Miniaturist recently begun a two-month shoot with filming taking place largely in London plus a brief stint in the Netherlands.
Coming towards the end of its 11-week shoot is Ayub Khan-Din’s The ABC, a major new drama set in a northern comprehensive school which has been shooting in Yorkshire since late January.
