I posted earlier on Fish that they are filming movie on JRR Tolkiens life in Port Sunlight today so I assume it's for that. Tolkien of course wrote Lord of the Rings , The Hobbit etc.

I think the one at the tunnel is for Bulletproof. Was talking to a vehicle provider for Tolkien that were doing filming in Thornton Hough and he mentioned a few going on in this area.

I once worked in an office in Cavern Walks. Mathew St was always being taken over by film companies, and a bloody nuisance they were too. On one occasion they had invaded our building to install lights from above the street, and in the lift with many others one lunchtime, someones asked what they were filming. A young lady at the front of the lift condescendngly said - in a very posh accent - "Actually, we're filming a comedy!"

Quick as a flash, came a comment from the back of the lift. "We'll be the judge of that, love!"

The perfect put-down!

My wife was an extra in chariots of fire at Bebington Oval and still has the mock programme that they waved in the air. Werent allowed to wear certain colours as not fashionable back then.
