Jude Law begins filming The Nest
Filming has begun on The Nest starring Jude Law and Carrie Coon with principal photography beginning in Canada for one week before shifting to the UK for the rest of the seven-week shoot.
The family psychodrama centres on an ambitious entrepreneur (Law) who relocates to the UK with his American wife and children, moving the family into an eerily isolated English manor house.
Element Pictures, FilmNation Entertainment LLC and BBC Films are partnering on the feature that marks the return to directing of Sean Durkin, best known for social drama Martha Marcy May Marlene. Durkin directs from his own screenplay.
The Nest is one of several new projects that go before the cameras this week; others include ITV’s Lake District-set relationship thriller Deep Water and BBC Two comedy Don’t Forget the Driver starring Toby Jones.
