Classic cars take over Southport street for retro film shoot

VISITORS to one Southport street would've been forgiven for thinking they'd stumbled into the Sixties as shooting for a forthcoming feature film resumed.

The Champion has already reported that the former American diner on the corner of Union Street had been transformed into a fish and chip shop while filming of the new movie Noble takes place. Last week the same location was turned into another street scene from decades gone by, complete with classic cars from the 1960s, including a Ford Anglia, Austin Westminster and Vauxhall Victor VX4/90.

Written, directed and produced by Stephen Bradley, the film will star Deirdre O'Kane in the lead role as it focuses on the true story of Christine Noble, who overcomes a difficult childhood in Ireland to discover her destiny on the streets of Saigon in Vietnam. Actress Deirdre, who also stars in the series Moone Boy, will be joined in the film by EMMY and BAFTA nominated Downton Abbey star Brendan Coyle, Game of Thrones actor and film star Liam Cunningham, and actress Ruth Negga, who previoulsy played singer Shirley Bassey in the BBC television movie Shirley.

The film is due to be released next year.
