New film due for cinema release next year aims to 'subvert Bradford stereotypes'


ANOTHER production crew has been using locations across Bradford to shoot a film set entirely in the city.

Shooting of the as yet untitled cinema release, due out next year, will continue until mid June.

Filming has taken place at Idle Working Men’s Club, and other locations include Undercliffe Cemetery, Bradford Royal Infirmary and the city centre.

For the past few days filming has taken place on a grassed area off Bolton Road, near Westminster CofE Primary School. The crew was making the most of the site’s views over the city, including Valley Parade and Manningham Mills.



The film stars up-and-coming actor Laurie Kynaston, and Mark Addy – famous for his roles in The Full Monty and Game of Thrones.

Produced by Open Palm Films, the story tells of a young man who has made a series of bad choices in his life.

He wakes up on an area of wasteland in Bradford after being given the “once over” with no memory of who he is.

A South Asian family living nearby takes him in and helps him recover. But his violent past soon catches up with him.

The script was written by Bruce McLeod and is being directed by Lisa Mulcahy. It is the second film to be produced by Open Palm Films, set up last year by theatre director and writer Dominic Dromgoole.

Alexandra Breede, head of production, said the film would capture the beauty of Bradford as well as its “grit” adding: “This is a positive view of the city and the people here.
