Movie stars will be taking over the Wells Cathedral
A multi-million pound blockbuster film will be shooting in Wells, Somerset, this week.
Jack the Giant Killer, a special effects showcase, is directed by Bryan Singer, who was also responsible for X-Men and produced The Usual Suspects. It features some of the biggest acting talents in the UK, including Ewan McGregor, Bill Nighy, and Ian McShane, as well as Nicholas Hoult in the title role.
Ewan McGregor is playing a giant-killing expert who leads his majesty's guards, while Bill Nighy and John Kassir are teaming up to play the two heads of the giants' leader.
Filming will take place at Wells Cathedral and in Cheddar at a number of secret and secluded locations around the village.
