New ‘Guernsey’ director due to pay a visit
Monday 11th February 2013, 5:00PM GMT.
A SCOUTING mission to explore possible filming locations for the ‘Guernsey’ film will take place in the next few weeks.
The Hollywood adaptation of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society has a new director in Simon Curtis, pictured, a new studio in StudioCanal and auditions are under way for a new star.
Producer Paula Mazur has confirmed that casting is under way for lead character Juliet Ashton and she hoped that an announcement would be made shortly.
She added that they were looking to get a ‘bankable’ star. The search is not being confined to English actresses, but Ms Mazur said a good English accent was vital.
New director Simon Curtis is due to visit the island at the end of this month.
