Filming has begun on British historical comedy Seize Them! – Aimee Lou Wood, Lolly Adefope, and Nicola Coughlan star.
With a cast full of British talent, historical comedy Seize Them! begins filming today. The film is set in the Dark Ages, and stars Sex Education actor Aimee Lou Wood alongside comedian Lolly Adefope and Bridgerton‘s Nicola Coughlan. Also starring are Nick Frost and Jessica Hynes.
Directing the comedy is Curtis Vowell, who helmed Baby Done, with a script written by Andy Riley, who penned episodes of Veep and the Gnomeo & Juliet films. Producers Damian Jones and Matthew James Wilkinson have worked on Absolutely Fabulous The Movie and Yesterday, respectively.
Here’s the official synopsis –
Queen Dagan (Aimee Lou Wood) is master of all she surveys, with an ego to match – until she’s toppled by a revolution led by the charismatic Humble Joan (Nicola Coughlan). The Queen becomes a fugitive in her own land, a hefty bounty on her head. With the help of Shulmay (Lolly Adefope), a former servant with a lot of secrets – and Bobik (Nick Frost), a shit-shoveller who wants more out of life – Queen Dagan must face every conceivable hardship and danger as she embarks on a voyage to win back her throne. She also has to face up to the very worst parts of herself. Can she become Queen again? And can she become a better person while she does it? And what if she has to choose?
Seize Them! will be shooting over six weeks in Kent and Wales. More news on the film as we hear it.
