Sunshine on Leith, a film adapted by Stephen Greenhorn from his hit stage musical featuring the music of The Proclaimers, is currently shooting for six weeks in and around Edinburgh and Glasgow, and stars Peter Mullan and Jane Horrocks.

Directed by Dexter Fletcher – who helmed this year’s critically acclaimed Wild Bill – it tells the story of two army friends who return home to Leith from Afghanistan. One of them finds the love of his life, while the other loses the girl he left behind.

The two soldiers are played by 20 year old George MacKay (represented by Gordon and French) most recently seen in Private Peaceful and soon to be seen in How I Live Now opposite Saoirse Ronan, and 24 year old Scottish actor Kevin Guthrie who trained at Rcs, in his first film role.

Skins star Freya Mavor (represented by Hamilton Hodell), who recently filmed on another Glasgow-based film Not Another Happy Ending, »
