Martin ClunesMartin Clunes is preparing to film his starring role in Manhunt, a new ITV thriller based on real life events. 

Pre-production is underway on the three-part drama that is based on the memoirs of DCI Colin Sutton and his hunt for the killer of 22-year-old Frenchwoman Amelie Delagrange in London in 2004. 

ITV head of drama Polly Hill said at the time of the commission: “With the full co-operation of ex-DCI Colin Sutton, Manhunt dramatises his fight to find Amelie's killer Levi Bellfield,” said Polly Hill, the head of drama for ITV.

“It is a powerful, compelling script from Ed Whitmore, which illustrates how a dedicated and resilient police officer was determined to leave no stone unturned.”
