The Eagle Of The Ninth: Info From Matt Nettheim Blog - Jamie Bell

Matt Nettheim - Post Production Still Photographer

It also proved to be a good time to be in London in that I was able to pick up 2 extra days work on The Eagle of the Ninth which had 3 days of re-shoots at Shepperton Studios. With very little preparation time an amazing Roman era set was constructed and busy actors Channing Tatum, Jamie Bell and Mark Strong were secured. It was fantastic to catch up with the cast and many of the original crew members, and the filming went well, director Kevin Macdonald being able to polish what I am confident will be beautifully shot and epic adventure film.

From the article: (Click the logo below to read)

Considering Gordon-Green's pre-stoner-comedy work, Harris-Moore's story seems a perfect match for his sensibilities with the director even having already helmed a teen-on-the-run film with "Undertow" starring Jamie Bell, who we can't help but think would be perfect for the role.
