Principal photography has begun in London for the new Martin Scorsese-produced movie Tomorrow, about casualties of war.
The confirmed cast includes comedian and actor Stephen Fry, Joss Stone (The Tudors) and Paul Kaye (Game of Thrones) and will shoot in Battersea, Borough and Shoreditch.
Details of roles are yet to be revealed but Tomorrow will be the directorial debut from Martha Pinson (script advisor for Scorsese’s The Departed and Shutter Island) and is set to follow the readjustments of battle-scarred soldiers, and those suffering from post-traumatic stress, as well as HIV and AIDS.
“[These experiences are] an acute challenge for a person in their mid-late 20’s, which has not been extensively explored,” explained Pinson. “For an injured veteran or someone who is HIV positive it is colossal.”
Further scenes will be filmed at grand stately home Tedworth House in Wiltshire – now an Army-let Personnel Recovery Centre supported by Help for Heroes. Tedworth House helps wounded, injured and sick soldiers, so they can return to the forces or civilian life. The cast and crew will move to Spain for filming this October.
Scorsese said: “I’m honoured to join Martha in her directorial debut. Through her vision, the great cast, and dedicated team, this story will resonate for years to come.”
Pinson added: “Tomorrow is a great script. The dialogue is brilliant and believable; the reversals and surprises are well placed and powerful. The characters and situations are vividly drawn.”
Stuart Brennan (Risen), Sebastian Street (Age of Heroes) and Stephanie Leonidas (MirrorMask) will also star.
