London, 6th July 2009: Eight weeks of principal photography commences today in and around London and at Ealing Studios on “ST TRINIAN’S® II: THE LEGEND OF FRITTON’S GOLD”.
David Tennant (Dr. Who) and Sarah Harding (Girls Aloud) will join the cast from“St Trinians” which includes Rupert Everett (My Best Friend’s Wedding, Shakespeare in Love, Stage Beauty) and Colin Firth (Dorian Gray, Mamma Mia!, Bridget Jones’ Diary, Love Actually), Gemma Arterton (Quantum of Solace), Talulah Riley (The Boat That Rocked), Jodie Whittaker (Venus, Cranford), Juno Temple (Atonement, Notes on a Scandal) Tamsin Egerton (Keeping Mum), Celia Imrie (Calendar Girls, Bridget Jones’ Diary) and Fenella Woolgar (How to Lose Friends and Alienate People, Vera Drake). Actors joining the exciting cast line up will include new talents Ella Smith, Zawe Ashton and Montserrat Lombard.
“ST TRINIAN’S® II: THE LEGEND OF FRITTON’S GOLD” sees the schoolgirls start a new term amidst the usual chaos and excitement. Rupert Everett returns as unconventional headmistress Camilla Fritton and Colin Firth as her old flame Geoffrey Thwaites. A rollercoaster-style treasure hunt for the legendary Fritton’s Gold ensues as they face their most fearsome establishment rivals yet, but the feisty and ever-resourceful girls of St Trinian’s are undeterred in their mission to outwit the villainous Pomfrey (David Tennant) and his sidekicks from the women-hating secret society known as AD1.
On the downside:
1. It's made by the same people who did the last one.
2. It stars people called Fenella, Tallulah, Tamsin and Monsterrat.
3. It will therefore be another thrown together shambles of a film, created by posh old men trying to be cool and lacking anything close to charm or style.
On the upside:
1. I spend a lot of time in Ealing. I may see Sarah Harding.
