Colman, Firth begin filming Mendes’ Empire of Light

Sam Mendes has begun filming his latest project, which stars Olivia Colman and Colin Firth.

Empire of Light is set in and around a beautiful old cinema on the south coast of England in the 1980’s.

The film will shoot in Margate, England and along the Kent coastline until May.

The cast also includes Toby Jones, Michael Ward, Tom Brooke, Hannah Onslow, Tanya Moodie and Crystal Clarke.

“I’m really thrilled to be working with so many wonderful collaborators across both cast and crew on such a personal project,” said Sam Mendes. “It’s a particular thrill to be working for the first time with Olivia Colman, and to be working once again with my long-term collaborator Roger Deakins.”
