Rosamund Pike filming in London
Principal photography is underway in London on Three Seconds, a New York-set thriller starring Clive Owen and Rosamund Pike.
London doubles for the Big Apple in the action thriller which is based on the best-selling Swedish novel by Borge Hellstrom and Anders Roslund.
It centres on reformed criminal and Special Ops soldier Pete Hoffman whose release deal from jail sees him working undercover for the FBI to infiltrate a Polish drugs gang.
Joel Kinnaman, rapper/actor Common and Ana de Armas are also among the cast. Andrea Di Stefano directs from a screenplay by Mark Cook.
Three Seconds is one of several high-profile US film projects currently using the capital as a production base or for location work.
Cameras recently started rolling on Tim Burton’s live-action Dumbo, and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2, while Mission: Impossible 6, Overlord and the untitled Han Solo feature are coming towards the end of their filming schedule.
