Well, not exactly: World’s End Television are to shoot a short film in Hornby next week. The cast list for the film, Last Night, is under wraps: apparently revealing who’s in it might warrant “unwanted attention”, so I can’t tell you any more than that.

World’s End is a major indie producer for the BBC and makes shows such as the MTV/Channel Five ‘dope opera’, Top Buzzer and BBC Radio Five Live’s points for punditry sporting debate show, Fighting Talk.

There’s been quite a bit of filming around here recently: Billie Biper has been filming at Sunderland Point, as part of the work going on the BBC’s adaptation of Philip Pullman‘s The Ruby In The Smoke.

Julie Walters was also here, playing the role of the charismatic and deadly Mrs Holland, a woman determined to mastermind Sally’s demise.
