Kill List, Sightseers and Doctor Who director Ben Wheatley will film his new movie High Rise, starring Tom Hiddleston, in the seaside resort of Bangor this June.

Hiddleston plays the lead, a young doctor by the name of Robert Laing, in the adaptation of JG Ballard’s novel.

The unnerving dystopian tale takes place in the pre-Thatcher era, and follows life in a modern tower block, erected as a luxurious escape from a gritty city, full of issues. The shocking first line of the novel reads: “Later, as he sat on his balcony eating the dog, Dr Robert Laing reflected on the usual events that had taken place within this huge apartment building during the previous three months”.

Wheatley explained to Variety that Hiddleston was “the perfect Laing to me. He brings an intelligence, vulnerability and humour to his roles, be they art-house or blockbuster, that will make Laing come alive”. Hiddleston also said that he “could not wait to work with Ben”.

Northern Ireland Screen Fund is backing the project along with Film4, the European Regional Development Fund, and the British Film Institute.

Producer Jeremy Thomas (The Last Emperor) said, “I’m delighted to be shooting this specialfilm in Northern Ireland, with wonderful support from Andrew Reid and all at Northern Ireland Screen. We look forward to a great shoot.”

It’s rumoured High Rise will be released in 2015.
