Peter Mullan, Dexter Fletcher

Ever since he broke into film directing with the impressive, funny and touching Wild Bill, we’ve been eagerly anticipating Dexter Fletcher's follow-up. Now we know a little more about it, with the news that he’s cast Peter Mullan and Jane Horrocks in Sunshine On Leith.

Stephen Greenhorn wrote the script, which adapts his own musical. With the music of the Proclaimers threaded through the story, it’ll find two friends returning to Leith from time spent in the army.

Fletcher has rounded up the likes of George McKay, Kevin Guthrie, Antonia Thomas and Freya Mavor to co-star in the film, which he’s now shooting around Edinburgh and Glasgow at the start of a six-week stint.

DNA Films is backing the project, with Andrew Macdonald producing his first film in Scotland since he worked with Danny Boyle on Trainspotting. Good, intriguing choice of a follow-up for both director and producer, there…

We chatted with Fletcher and Wild Bill’s Jason Flemyng way back in episode 5 of the podcast. Check that out below.
