CinemaNX and Isle of Man Film, together with Julie Lebedev’s Code Red Productions have announced the start of principal photography on their new feature film Honour. Produced by Newscope and Parti Productions, the film is a contemporary thriller that will shoot on the Island for three weeks commencing on November 8th, followed by a further three weeks production in Glasgow. Honour is the debut feature from Bafta nominated writer-director Shan Khan.
Honour will see a return to front of camera for Paddy Considine after his award-winning directorial debut Tyrannosaur. Considine’s acting credits include acclaimed performances in Submarine, My Summer of Love, In America, The Last Resort, and A Room For Romeo Brass.
DED Minister John Shimmin said, “”Paddy Considine is a brilliant talent. We are thrilled we have secured him for this production, particularly after his recent directorial debut with the critically acclaimed Tyrannosaur. Honour is sure to repeat the success we have enjoyed with recent releases and will no doubt strengthen our reputation for making top quality, independent, commercial films. During their three week stay on the Island, the production will spend approximately £500,000 in the local economy. In excess of 1,200 bed-nights, around a dozen local crew positions and a minimum of 4 very valuable trainee positions will be generated by the production during their stay with us. These film generated benefits are always welcome, particularly at this out-of-season time of year.”
The film is being produced by Nisha Parti and Jason Newmark. Executive producers are Steve Christian and Marc Samuelson of CinemaNX and Leonid Lebedev and Julie Lebedev of Code Red Productions. The script has been developed with the assistance of the UK Film Council.
