A MAJOR £12 million fantasy film starring Bill Nighy and Malcolm McDowell could be filmed in Jersey after producers decided that the Island’s castles and beaches could make the perfect backdrop.
Film producers Canbedone Ltd have been given a £200,000 grant of taxpayers’ money towards the costs of creating ‘Knights of Impossingworth’ in Jersey and could start filming within months.
It was originally meant to be shot in August 2011, but Economic Development Minister Alan Maclean says that he has been told filming could begin around March or April. ‘It is an exciting idea,’ said the Senator.
