Talulah Riley shoots Scottish Mussel
by Naman Ramachandran
- Martin Compston, Joe Thomas and Harry Enfield amongst cast members
Actress turned writer/director Talulah Riley (St. Trinian’s) has commenced a four-week shoot at Glasgow locations for her directorial debut Scottish Mussel. The film follows a Glaswegian chancer with low hopes and no prospects who moonlights as an illegal pearl fisher with the help of his two hapless and accident-prone mates. He falls for a pretty English conservationist passionate about saving endangered mussels from the clutches of pearl thieves in the Scottish Highlands but must beat off competition in the form of a Highland Ranger, a smooth-talking American Adonis.
The cast includes Riley, Martin Compston (Filth [+see also:
