Debbie Tucker Green wraps shoot for Second Coming
Nadine Marshall and Idris Elba star in London-set family drama.
Debbie Tucker Green [pictured] has wrapped the six week shoot for her debut feature-length film, Second Coming.
She previously adapted her award-winning play Random for a Channel 4 single drama in 2012.
Producers are Hillbilly Films’ Kate Norrish and Polly Leys. Second Coming is developed and co-financed by Film4 and the BFI Film Fund and supported by the Sundance Institute Feature Film Program.
Random star Nadine Marshall stars alongside Idris Elba in the story of a family that breaks down after an unexplained pregnancy.
Katherine Butler, Deputy Head of Film, Film4, said: “Ever since we saw Debbie’s first short film and worked with her on Random we’ve believed her to be a visionary new voice in British film - telling stories from a community we rarely see on the big screen with an incredible mix of poetry, energy and humanity. I am thrilled to have been able to collaborate with Debbie, Nadine Marshall and Hillbilly Films again, and to welcome Idris Elba onto the team of this very special film”.
Lizzie Francke, Senior Executive in the BFI Film Fund, added: “Debbie Tucker Green has made an exceptional mark in theatre, establishing herself as one of the key new British voices. It is great to see her evolve as a filmmaker with as much distinction.”
