David Tennant filming new movie in region!

Former Dr Who star David Tennant will be in the region next week to film a romantic comedy.

Shooting starts near Dumfries next Tuesday on The Decoy Bride.
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.

Dumfries and Galloway councillor Roger Grant said: “Both these productions offer a welcome boost to the local economy as well as confirming Dumfries and Galloway as a viable filming alternative to the central belt.

“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.
