OK, TAKE 27! ON SET WITH GILLIAN
So you thought making movies was glamorous? So did Edwin Gilson until he joined the star of The Fall and Sir Ben Kingsley at a Co Antrim quarry…
June 18, 2013
By Edwin Gilson
Welcome to Parkgate Quarry in Co Antrim, the post-apocalyptic location of new alien invasion sci-fi film OUR ROBOT OVERLORDS. Every single crew member, including Belfast-born director Jon Wright, is clad in rain mac and Wellington boots in defence against the atrocious conditions. The majority of the cast are cramped up in claustrophobic hideaways, but at least they''re keeping dry.
At the climax of the film, Gandhi star Sir Ben Kingsley will appear at the highest point of the bank, accompanied by a legion of 20 feet tall robots, and enter into a verbal battle with Gillian Anderson, who is taking shelter in the mine-shaft below.
Her parts in OUR ROBOT OVERLORDS are being filmed today, initially minus Kingsley and his mechanic cronies. Along with English child actors Ella Hunt (Les Miserables) and Milo Parker plus a bunch of native rag-tag extras, she shouts defiantly up at an invisible menace.
