It’s a wrap for the UK film projects!

2015 is proving to be another great year for the UK film and TV industry, with a bumper crop of both home grown and visiting films and television dramas setting up production on these shores.

A look first at just a few of the projects which have recently wrapped, or are about to, including some of the locations used. This week we’ll concentrate on film, and next week head to television.

Film first. Horse wranglers and armourers will have been kept busy over the last six months or so as two big Hollywood tales came to shoot in the UK. 

One of them was helmed by Guy Ritchie, who gathered his knights at the table in a major new retelling of the Arthurian legend. The feature used locations including Snowdonia, the Forest of Dean and Scotland.

Hot on the heels of Ritchie’s Warner Bros. project, Chris Hemsworth-starrer The Huntsman began principal photography, also setting up some scenes in the Forest of Dean, along with the Elan Valley, Powys.

Anglophile Tim Burton has been busy here too, shooting Peregrine’s Home for Peculiars. Craggy Cornwall was among the main locations for the director, whose assembled cast includes Eva Green and Asa Butterfield.

Also in the can is Blueprint’s untitled Donald Crowhurst feature, which used the south coast, London and Malta. Colin Firth plays the doomed amateur sailor in the film, which is directed by The Theory of Everything’s James Marsh.

Rooney Mara and Ben Mendelsohn star in Blackbird, which recently completed filming in London and the south east. And it was Belfast for Kate Mara, joined by Boyd Holbrook, Toby Jones, Paul Giamatti in Morgan, a sci-fi thriller directed by Ridley Scott’s son Luke.

Next week, we will round up some of the small screen dramas which are just about done and dusted. 

This is just a taster of the many features we have covered extensively on Production Intelligence over the last few months. If you don’t already subscribe, click here for a demo.
