I really hope everyone can appreciate the Herculean lengths Sheila went to for us not just with a subtle, beautiful and tender performance but physically, day in day out. I'm not sure I'll ever see that again in my lifetime, was amazing to witness."
Simon's third feature, his passion project, EDIE has begun shooting in Sutherland Scotland. Shelia Hancock is playing Edie and rising star Kevin Guthrie also stars. The film tells the story of an elderly lady who has come through a lifetime of disappointment and regret. Faced with the prospect of life in the retirement home, Edie sets off to Scotland in order to climb a mountain and rekindle some of the magic of her youth.
The film is shooting in and around Lochinver, Sutherland in London and at Three Mills films studios. Much of the filming is in the wildest and most remote part of Scotland so Simon and Icelandic DP August Jakobsson selected the Arri Alex Mini as their main camera. Shooting in 4K, the film is Simon's first anamorphic picture. Simon is also joined by production designer Chris Richmond (Wasteland, The Veteran) and special effects supervisor is Stefano Pepin. (Prometheus) The film is produced by Mark Stothert and Tim Dennison.
