A NEW film is coming to the Isle of Man.
CinemaNX and Isle of Man Film, together with Julie Lebedev’s Code Red Productions have announced that a new feature film Honour will be filmed here.
The film, which is a contemporary thriller will shoot in the island for three weeks, starting tomorrow (Tuesday), followed by a further three weeks production in Glasgow.
Honour is the debut feature from Bafta nominated writer-director Shan Khan.
The film will see a return to front of camera for Paddy Considine after his award-winning directorial debut Tyrannosaur.
Considine’s acting credits include acclaimed performances in Submarine, The Bourne Ultimatum, My Summer of Love, In America, The Last Resort, and A Room For Romeo Brass.
The script has been developed with the assistance of the UK Film Council. The film is being produced by Nisha Parti and Jason Newmark, executive producers are Steve Christian and Marc Samuelson of CinemaNX and Leonid Lebedev and Julie Lebedev of Code Red Productions.
Economic Development Minister John Shimmin MHK said: ‘Paddy Considine is a brilliant talent. We are thrilled we have secured him for this production, particularly after his recent directorial debut with the critically acclaimed Tyrannosaur. Honour is sure to repeat the success we have enjoyed with recent releases and will no doubt strengthen our reputation for making top quality, independent, commercial films.
‘During their three-week stay on the island, the production will spend approximately £500,000 in the local economy. In excess of 1,200 bed-nights, around a dozen local crew positions and a minimum of 4 very valuable trainee positions will be generated by the production during their stay with us. These film-generated benefits are always welcome, particularly at this out-of-season time of year.’
