Dylan Thomas adaptation
Principal photography on an adaptation of Under Milk Wood, starring Rhys Ifans, has begun in Wales.
Based on Dylan Thomas’s classic radio drama, the film stars Ifans as First Voice/Captain Cat, an old sea captain who dreams of his deceased crew members and lost love.
Directed by Kevin Allen, who made Ifans’ breakthrough film Twin Town, the shoot in the tiny harbour village of Solva, in Pembrokeshire, will last six weeks.
Singer Charlotte Church will co-star as Polly Garter, a woman pining for her lost lover. Other roles are taken by a host of Welsh actors with guest appearances from rugby legend Gareth Edwards and former Labour leader Lord Kinnock.
Allen and Ifans are producers of the film, along with Stephen Malit, producer of Julien Temple’s London – The Modern Babylon. Allen also contributed to the screenplay, written by Murray Lachlan Young with Michael Breen.
