Shooting has started at Bristol’s Bottle Yard Studios on British heist movie Golden Years.

Produced by MoliFilms Entertainment the film is being shot in sets built in The Bottle Yard’s Tank House 2 space, with production coordinated from the studios’ production offices including locations around the city.

Supported by the Bristol Film Office filming will take place in the bank buildings surrounding St Nicholas Market, including the former Bank of England on Broad Street, as well as banks on Clare Street and Corn Street.

The film’s bowling club scenes are being shot at The Ardagh Sports Club at Horfield Common, whilst unit bases have been set up at Redcliffe Wharf and Horfield Common. Bristol Film Office has also used social media to recruit more than 100 local people to appear in the film as extras.

Golden Years is a British heist comedy written by Nick Knowles, Jeremy Sheldon and writer/director John Miller and played by an ensemble cast including Bernard Hill, pictured, (Wolf Hall, Lord of the Rings), Virginia McKenna (Born Free, Sliding Doors),  Sue Johnston (Downtown Abbey, Royle Family) and Alun Armstrong (Braveheart, New Tricks).

A MoliFilms Entertainment production, Golden Years is produced by Mark Foligno (The Kings Speech, The Rise) and associate-produced by Lucy Selwood, Tanya Beadle and Jolien Buijs.

The film focuses on a law abiding retired couple Arthur and Martha Goode (played by Bernard Hill and Virginia McKenna) who are forced into a life of crime by the vagaries of the pensions crisis.
