Filming underway on spy thriller 355
Principal photography is underway on 355, a starry spy thriller with Jessica Chastain, Lupita Nyong’o, Penelope Cruz and Marion Cotillard heading the cast.
The feature will film largely in the UK with some of the 13-week shoot heading to France and Morocco.
It comes from Chastain’s NY-based production company Freckle Films and Universal Pictures with Simon Kinberg calling the shots from Theresa Rebeck’s screenplay.
355 is the latest major inward investment project to set up shop in the UK.
