EXCLUSIVE: Shoot readies on B Good drama starring Yasmin Paige.
Morgan Watkins (Wild Bill) and Michael Culkin (Downton Abbey) have joined former Screen Star of Tomorrow Yasmin Paige (Submarine) and Scott Chambers on Joe Stephenson’s feature debut Chicken.
Shoot is due to commence in London and Surrey on August 27.
Watkins recently wrapped on Alan Rickman’s A Little Chaos. Culkin most recently played in Bill Condon’s Wikileaks drama The Fifth Estate, which premieres at Toronto. Gina Bramhill (Being Human) and RADA graduate Kirsty Besterman round out the cast.
Weekend actor Chris New has adapted Freddie Machin’s play of the same name, in which two brothers living in a caravan on someone else’s land have their lives turned upside down with the arrival of a new land-owner. Paige will play the new land-owner’s daughter.
As previously reported, Scott Chambers will also act in the project.
B Good produces in association with Bold Turtle Productions.
Stephenson previously directed Sky Arts’ series In Love With.
