Gary Oldman filming crime thriller in London

London

Gary Oldman is set to film crime thriller The Courier from next week in London with co-star Olga Kurylenko.

The story follows Kurylenko’s courier who discovers that a parcel she is carrying is in fact an explosive intended to kill a witness who is scheduled to testify against Oldman’s crime boss, according to a Deadline report.

Filming is scheduled to span six weeks.

Zackary Adler, a veteran of London-based crime movies including The Rise of the Krays and Rise of the Footsoldier 3, is directing for Signature Films and co-producer Rollercoaster Angel Productions.

The film’s producers are Marc Goldberg, James Edward Barker, David Haring and Andrew Prendergast, and the script is credited to Andy Conway and Nicky Tate.

Signature is also behind the upcoming survival movie Arctic, filmed on location in Iceland with Mads Mikkelsen, and the submarine film Kursk, based on the true story of the loss of the eponymous Russian sub in the Barents Sea in 2000.
