Lip Sync have won the full Post Production and VFX Contract for Steel Country, a film produced by Oscar winning Gareth Unwin from Bedlam Productions (The King’s Speech).
Shooting has begun in Atlanta, and cutting rooms are already open at 195.
Andrew Scott, known for his villainous roles in Sherlockand Spectre, is to lead the cast of Steel Country, a crime thriller that begins shooting in the US later this week.
Bankside Films has come on board to sell the US-set thriller, written by Brendan Higgins and directed by Simon Fellows (Malice In Wonderland), ahead of the Toronto International Film Festival.
Scott will play a small town truck driver who turns detective when a young boy is found dead in a sleepy part of Western Pennsylvania. His investigations turn into an obsession to prove the boy has been murdered, leading to harrowing consequences.
The BAFTA-winner will co-star alongside Bronagh Waugh, who starred in TV crime series The Fall, and Denise Gough (’71, Jimmy’s Hall), who recently won an Olivier Best Actress award for her performance in stage play People, Places And Things.
