Feature movie currently being filmed at Pembroke Castle
Film crews have descended on Pembrokeshire this week in order to capture scenes for a new feature movie.
Pembroke Castle and its grounds are currently being used as the location for a film under the working title of Rosebud – The Movie, which is being produced by Tiger Aspect Productions. Due to start today, it is thought that filming will continue until Saturday evening and will take place from 7am-7pm each day.
More than 100 extras are expected to be taking part, including some dressed up as police officers, and it has been suggested that a number of scenes will include sword fighting. It is unknown whether any famous actors or actresses will be featuring in the movie, but residents will be keeping a close eye out for any famous faces.
Lights, Camera, Action!
The majority of the scenes will be filmed in the castle itself, and shouldn’t affect visitors looking to view the medieval building this week. However, when visiting the castle it is thought that people may be able to spot a low-flying helicopter, which is scheduled to be used for camera and stunt work.
Those hoping to catch a glimpse of the filming can do so with a visit to Pembroke Castle when staying in nearby Saundersfoot cottages, which are just a twenty-minute drive away. The movie will be fantastic publicity for the castle and Pembrokeshire as a whole, and will showcase the beauty of the region to millions of viewers, hopefully inspiring more to visit the county.
Filming is also due to take place in Pembrokeshire during May, with many speculating that it is for a major movie production of the best-selling book Me Before You. It is thought that the film crew will be in town for approximately three days and are seeking extras, although dates have not been confirmed.
