Forest Whitaker filming for Netflix in UK
A new musical feature from Netflix, Jingle Jangle, is setting up for a UK shoot next year with David E Talbert directing from his own screenplay.
Forest Whitaker stars in the film as Jeronicus Jangle, a once-great inventor who has lost his belief in himself and his inventions.
He stumbles upon a second chance when his granddaughter comes to town for the holidays.
Singer/songwriter John Legend produces alongside Mike Jackson – the pair executive produced this year’s Emmy award-winning Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert. The other producers of Jingle Jangle are David McIlvain, David E Talbert and Lyn Sisson-Talbert.
The executive producer is Ty Stiklorius, who worked with Legend and Jackson on Damien Chazelle's multi-award-winning 2016 musical La La Land.
