Day 28 of filming


At this point, back at Alfie’s garage it felt almost like home. Today’s scene takes place near the end of the film and it focuses on Murray’s secrets being revealed under rather extraordinary circumstances. To start with, Olive, David and Alfie are having a discussion about what they are going to do with all the […]

Day 27 of filming


We spent the day in the prison grounds in Rochester. The endless underground tunnels that surround the prison served as corridors under Campbell Manor which Olive chooses as her escape route. During the escape she has to face Murray’s security guards, and Murray himself. Amazing as they are, the tunnels are also extremely dusty – […]

Day 26 of filming


Today our set was a much quieter place – we basically spent the day chilling out at a pub and playing pool. Only later did we move to a night shop to shoot David getting provisions for poor Alfie, Cloutier and Marco whom David and Olive had locked up in a remote shed. Charlotte was […]



Although spacious and easily capable of seating several dozens of customers, this pub has probably never seen so many people on a Tuesday morning and early afternoon. But for the bar and loads of sofas, there is also a pool table and a stage for local gigs. As we take control of our location today, […]

Day 25 of filming


Today’s scene may as well have been the most challenging we have done so far. It is a shootout scene involving six actors, lots of big guns, intense action and blood splashing. In order to explain in detail how the scene was going to be filmed, Suki had held several crew meetings. Action scenes are […]

Stanmore warehouse


Welcome to Stanmore! Yet another amazing location for Olive Green – a massive warehouse storing all kinds of vehicles and machinery. It will become an impressive setting for the major fight scene between Murray and Willis. In fact, it is so huge it makes you feel really small and humble. The night was cold and […]

Day 24 of filming


It was definitely the longest working day on the set so far – we started at 9 am and finished at 10 pm. We were filming for 13 hours straight, but the outcome is really amazing! Also, it was probably one of the coldest days so far – once it got dark, everyone put on […]

Day 23 of filming


When we arrived at the location referred to as the “Gennady’s office”, we were impressed with the number of typically Russian items that had been gathered there. These were necessary as Gennady is a very prominent Russian mobster, operating in the UK, who has never really taken to the British culture. Gennady (played by Kevin […]

Rochester prison


Having heard some intriguing stories about our next location – which is situated right next to the Rochester Prison – we had been very excited to finally get there. Reaching our destination was not easy – we got stuck in a terrible traffic jam on M25, and the journey took us five hours instead of […]

Day 22 of filming


Sergey and Vlad are back on the set. The major scene of the day was a very dramatic affair – a chase ending with a car crash. And so, we have got Olive and David running away from Vlad (who goes after them with the determination and stamina of the Terminator). The problem is that […]
