Three Seconds to film in the UK
A new feature film set in New York and starring Clive Owen and Rosamund Pike is set to film in the UK this summer.
Three Seconds is based on the best-selling Swedish novel by Borge Hellstrom and Anders Roslund.
The story centres on a former Special Ops soldier and reformed criminal whose prison release deal sees him going undercover for the FBI to infiltrate a Polish drugs gang in New York. Joel Kinnaman and rapper/actor Common are also among the cast.
Basil Iwanyk produces for his company Thunder Road Pictures and is joined by Ollie Madden and Vishal Rungta. Italian actor/director Andrea Di Stefano will be calling the shots from a screenplay by Matt Cook.
