Evolution Films and Hereford Films have announced that principal photography is underway on Eat Local, an action-packed vampire thriller that marks the directorial debut of actor Jason Flemyng (X-Men: First Class, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels).
Heading up the cast of Eat Local is Daredevil star Charlie Cox, alongside Mackenzie Crook (Pirates of the Caribbean, Game of Thrones), Dexter Fletcher (Eddie the Eagle), Freema Agyeman (Doctor Who), Eve Myles (Doctor Who, Torchwood), Ruth Jones (Gavin & Stacey), Annette Crosbie (Into the Woods) and Vincent Regan (Lockout, 300), along with newcomer Billy Cook as Sebastian.
“Eat Local has been 10 years in the making and has been through so many different budgets and guises but me and [screenwriter] Danny King have worked together and finally we’re here,” says Flemyng. “We’re 3 days in to shooting and 50% of what we’re doing is better than I could have imagined and 50% is as good as I could have hoped. Everyone is working really hard with budgets they haven’t seen for 20 years and the actors are working for beer and lunch money. But we’re doing it, we’ve pulled it together, and I’m so thrilled.”
