Gulliver’s Travels

This week’s location shoot at the Old Royal Naval College is Gulliver’s Travels. I’m guessing the security guards got fed up with explaining what’s going on to curious passers-by as there’s a big board at the entrance that not only tells us what the production is, but apologises for inconvenience – something I’ve never seen before and really appreciate – Thank you, 20th Century Fox, for being polite.

Unlike Wolfman, which barred the gates to gawpers, this seems to be a fairly open set. They close off areas while they’re actually shooting, but the rest of the time the public can just wander around. Clearly, Fox have worked out that if someone sees something being made, they’re more likely to be curious to see the finished article.
Being the world’s worst star-spotter, I have no idea who this handsome couple are, or, indeed, who the panto-style guards may be, but apparently Jack Black is to play the titular hero. This could either be a brilliant or a terrible move, but there’s only one way to find out, I guess…
At this point, may I renew my plea for anyone who’s in the loop on filming in our fair borough, to maybe get in touch? I’d love to have a “what’s being filmed where this week” section on the blog…
