Eddie Izzard feature eyes summer filming
Eddie Izzard is preparing to film Six Minutes to Midnight, a feature film from Mad as Birds Films.
Set during the run-up to the Second World War, Izzard plays a teacher at an elite finishing school on the English coast who is framed for murder and accused of being a German spy.
The feature will shoot this summer, mainly on location in south Wales, with director Andy Goddard calling the shots from a screenplay he wrote with Izzard and Celyn Jones.
Mad as Birds Films has recently been in post on Keepers, a period feature starring Gerard Butler, who also produced. The story is inspired by a true-life mystery surrounding the disappearance in 1900 of three lighthouse keepers from the Flannan Isles off the coast of north-west Scotland.
Production Intelligence has more details on Six Minutes to Midnight including the shoot dates and key HoDs such as the line producer, DoP and production designer.
