Actor Bill Nighy, a regular visitor to the island and a great supporter of Isle of Man Film, is joining Martin Freeman, Rupert Grint, (Ron Weasley from Harry Potter) Rupert Everett, and Emily Blunt as filming begins for a new comedy called Wild Target.
Victor Maynard (Nighy) is a middle-aged, solitary assassin, who lives to please his formidable mother, Louisa (Eileen Atkins). His professional routine is interrupted when he finds himself drawn to one of his intended victims, Rose (Emily Blunt). This leads to a whole host of chaos, and mayhem ensues. The production has started its London shoot and is headed to the Isle of Man three weeks. Wild Target will be the fourth film made on the Island this year, joining ‘A Bunch of Amateurs’, ‘Me and Orson Welles’ and ‘Heartless’.
