Danny Boyle film gets underway
Filming on Danny Boyle’s next directing project gets underway next week.
Many of the details on the as-yet-untitled feature are still under wraps but it is reportedly music-themed and set in the 1960s or 70s.
Himesh Patel and Lily James are among the cast.
The screenplay is by Richard Curtis – he and Boyle are also on the producing team along with Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, Matt Wilkinson and Bernie Bellew.
The feature will be filming in locations across the UK including Suffolk, Norfolk, Liverpool, London and Cardiff.
