We take a look at 10 film and TV productions filming across London and the rest of the UK this spring.

Film and television have been keeping us thoroughly entertained this year, with thrilling new releases like Netflix’s Baby Reindeer getting the nation talking and big-screen blockbusters like Dune: Part Two getting bums on seats.

Instead of looking back, we’re looking forward to some of the exciting film and TV productions happening up and down the country this spring.


Pierce Brosnan and Spotlight member Amir El-Masry will star in the gripping true story of boxer Prince ‘Naz’ Naseem’s journey from humble beginnings to world champion under the watchful eye of trainer Brendan Ingle (Brosnan). 

Filming for Giant is currently taking place in and around Leeds and Sheffield – where Naz grew up and rose to fame. Casting by Marta Noguera and Spotlight member Colin Jones.

‘Greenland: Migration’

Greenland: Migration is the long-awaited sequel to the big-screen blockbuster Greenland (2020), starring Gerard Butler and Morena Baccarin. The 2020 film tells the story of a family struggling to survive a catastrophic natural disaster. Greenland: Migration will pick up where the original left off and follow the same family as they face a frozen wasteland and make their way across Europe in the hope of survival. 

Butler and Baccarin will both return, while the supporting cast has yet to be announced. This film is currently in production in various locations around the UK before moving to Iceland later this summer.
