A Hollywood film and its stars are shooting in Gloucester

Posted on 02nd August 2017

Scenes for a new Hollywood movie are being filmed in Gloucester.

Joel KinnamanThe film is called ‘Three Seconds’, and stars Hollywood talent such as Clive Owen, Rosamund Pike, and ‘House of Cards’ actor Joel Kinnaman.

Kinnaman has recently been tweeting photos from the location.

The scenes being filmed in the area are at Gloucester’s former prison, a fitting location considering how the film’s events are described by IMDB:

“An ex-convict working undercover intentionally gets himself incarcerated again in order to infiltrate the mob at a maximum security prison.”

The prison closed in 2013 but has been open for tours since earlier this year. The tours are on hold while filming for ‘Three Seconds’ takes place.

This isn’t the first motion picture or TV show to be shot in these parts, with the dynamic and cinematic environs of Gloucestershire providing the backdrop for productions such as ‘Sherlock’, ‘Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass’, and ‘Doctor Who.’

Gloucestershire is truly an ideal location for dramatic productions and there is no better way to see what all the fuss is about than by booking a Forest of Dean holiday cottage.
