'The Decoy Bride' - filming has already started!

THE Decoy Bride, which stars former Doctor Who David Tennant, begins filming in various locations around the Island today.

Filming will last two and a half weeks.

The contemporary romantic comedy also stars Kelly MacDonald (No Country For Old Men, Gosford Park) and Alice Eve (Sex and The City 2).

Written by Neil Jaworski and comedienne Sally Phillips (Smack The Pony), who also takes a supporting role, the Decoy Bride is directed by Sheree Folkson whose credits include Casanova - one of Tennant's earliest hits - and Ugly Betty.

Michael Urie, who plays Marc in Ugly Betty, Federico Castelluccio (Furio Giunta in The Sopranos) and stage and television actress Maureen Beattie are in the supporting cast.

CinemaNX and Isle of Man Film are involved in the film in association with Scottish Screen and HanWay Films. It is an Ecosse Films production.

Economic Development Minister Allan Bell MHK said: "I am extremely pleased to welcome the cast and crew of The Decoy Bride to the Island.

"CinemaNX and Isle of Man Film have worked hard to get this next production up and running, hot on the heels of the documentary feature film TT3D.

"It's shaping up to be a very good year for the Island in terms of film production days and positive media exposure."

CinemaNX is one of Britain's leading film finance, production and distribution companies.

Formed three years ago with backing from the Isle of Man Government, it has a number of films in production and distribution.
