The Ecosse Films production also stars Kelly MacDonald (No Country For Old Men, Gosford Park) and Alice Eve (Sex and the City 2).
Filming on another feature film is already underway in Dumfries.
Thriller Timelock began shooting last week. Several locals are being employed as crew members and more than 30 are working as extras across both productions.
“Over the past two years 130 filming projects have taken place in the region, adding about £2 million to the local economy.”
The films will showcase Dumfries and Galloway worldwide with both productions due to be released internationally next year. Screenings have already been secured for Dumfries.
