“Downton Abbey” actress Jessica Brown Findlay, Tom Wilkinson (who was Oscar nominated for “In the Bedroom” and “Michael Clayton”) and Andrew Scott (“Sherlock,” “Pride,” “Spectre”) have joined the cast of Simon Aboud’s “This Beautiful Fantastic,” which starts to shoot this week in London.

The feature project has been greenlit by AMBI Group principals Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi, with Christine Alderson and her Ipso Facto production banner.

Others in the cast include Jeremy Irvine (“War Horse,” “Now Is Good,” “The Railway Man”), Anna Chancellor (“What a Girl Wants,” “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”) and Sheila Hancock (“The Boy in the Striped Pajamas,” “3 Men and a Little Lady”).

“This Beautiful Fantastic” is a contemporary fairy tale revolving around the most unlikely of friendships between a reclusive young woman with dreams of being a children’s book author and a cantankerous widower, set against the backdrop of a beautiful garden in the heart of London.

AMBI will oversee global distribution of the film through its international sales division, AMBI Distribution. Medinah cashflows the U.K. tax credit, and Head Gear, LipSync Post, The Project Post and private investment complete the financing. Kami Nagdi’s Constance Media was previously involved in the script development.

Filming has been taking place in Hambleden for a BBC drama set in the Forties and Fifties. The two-part programme is an adaptation of the best-selling novel The Outcast by Sadie Jones, who has also written the script.

The show stars Jessica Brown-Findlay, who played Lady Sybil Crawley in Downton Abbey, George Mackay, who was in Pride and Sunshine on Leith, and Greg Wise, husband of Emma Thompson. It is produced by Blueprint Pictures, which has filmed in Hambleden twice in the last two years.

The coming-of-age story takes place between 1947 and 1957 in the fictional town of Waterford. Filming took place on three days last week in the village square and at St Mary’s Church and the sports and social club, which was transformed into a Forties-style police station. Other scenes were filmed in Fingest. Muffin Hurst, who lives in the village, said: “It’s always exciting when there’s some filming going on. It can become a bit tiresome with road closures but they are very good in Hambleden at notifying residents of what is going on and it’s a small price to pay for living somewhere so beautiful.” Ms Hurst, who runs the Henley Children’s Theatre Group, said her six-year-old son, Woody, had enjoyed watching all the action. “He sometimes finds it hard to separate TV and film from reality, so it’s quite good being able to show him how things get changed and then put on screen,” she said.

A year ago, Johnny Depp filmed musical fantasy film Into The Woods in Hambleden. His 1999 film Sleepy Hollow was also shot in the village. Other films and television series to have been filmed there include Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, 101 Dalmatians and Band of Brothers.

The Outcast is expected to be broadcast next year.

Its rumored that Jessica Brown Findlay will join Miranda Richardson and Naveen Andrews in the Comedy Full Bodied, we have a little plot summer available too…

If you’ve got the bottle, with a little planning you can dine free-of-charge every night in London’s smartest restaurants, and leave with very pricey vintage wine under your wing. Artful bill-dodgers, Terry Morris and Dick York, have acquired a taste for expensive wine. Too expensive; their palettes are becoming ever more refined, much to the bemusement of their friends. Terry has what is known as, “the mouth”. Not a natural scholar; nethertheless he’s the brains behind the wine scams. His rough charm and quick wit ensure he has more success with women than is morally acceptable. Dick is living proof that a university education guarantees you the pick of the best low-paid shop work; an amateur connoisseur in the field of wine – a confirmed amateur in the field of women. Rosalind Downing is a young actress from a famous acting family. She’s icily unimpressed by all of Terry’s usually failsafe lines, until her Aunt needs to retrieve her priceless bottle of Margaux. Professor Hermione Radcliffe is a famous academic with a secret identity as a High Priestess of Isis – leader of the ancient cult of Nefertiti. Harry Cutler & Sons; four generations of this East End family have lived and worked at the same Smithfield butchers. Terry and Dick’s mate Chopsy, aka Russell Cutler and his bullying father Gordon, are the current proprietors. Chopsy’s great grandfather Harry disappeared in strange circumstances. You can’t claim to be a wine connoisseur until you’ve sampled a bottle of Margaux. Undaunted by the price, age or circumstances, Terry still has a 1932 vintage away at The Ivy but the true cost to the boys has yet to dawn on them.

We have added a new HQ photo of Jess filming Jamaica Inn, thanks to Westmorland Gazette for the photo and this nice read.

The wait is over for South Lakeland residents keen to catch a glimpse of themselves or their home town on television. The dates have been announced for the screening of the BBC’s adaptation of Jamaica Inn, which was partly filmed in Kirkby Lonsdale using local people as extras.

“Kirkby Lonsdale looks set to be the quietest town in South Lakeland during Easter week!” said town council chairman Allan Muirhead. “Now we know the transmission dates, you can bet practically everyone in town will be tuning in for three nights’ viewing to see how it all turned out.”

The programme, which saw the town transformed into a 19th Century Cornish village for a week of filming, is set to be shown in three parts from Easter Monday, April 21. It will be shown in hour-long episodes, of which around 15 minutes will of the South Lakeland town’s Market Square, where fake shop fronts and tons of mud were installed to wind back the clock to 1820.

“We didn’t recognise parts of the town used for filming once they’d built false shop fronts,” continued Coun Muirhead. “It will be fun trying to spot ourselves.” The filming took place last October and saw stars Jessica Brown Findlay and Ben Daniels descend with a crew to film exterior shots. The adaptation of the Daphne du Maurier novel saw several residents chosen as extras, while hundreds more turned out to watch filming take place.

“We’ll have to watch very carefully!” added Coun Muirhead. A one-off event is now set to be hosted on Saturday (April 12) when the show’s producer, Dan Winch, will give a talk about ‘the making of Jamaica Inn’. One of the revelations is expected to be why the Cumbrian location was chosen rather than Launceston, where the book is set.

Accepting an invitation from town represenatives, Mr Winch said: “I’m so delighted that you all have fond memories of our visit. “The hard work and planning certainly seemed to pay off. I’d be delighted to visit. “It would be the very least I can do by way of thanks.”

The talk will be held at the Lunesdale Hall and tickets can be bought from the town’s visitor information shop at 24 Main Street.
