An undisclosed location in Swindon will be turned into a movie set for two days in September, with Oliver! star Mark Lester attending the shoot.
The movie, Fighting Talk, with a multi-million pound budget, will also star Transporter 3 actor Silvio Simac, who will be on set for a pinnacle fight with martial artist co-star Matt Fiddes.
The former Michael Jackson bodyguard and martial arts guru, Swindon-born Matt Fiddes is to star in the movie, as Carson Baker – the fourth lead role.
Fiddes, 36, was spotted by the movie’s director, Robby Haynes, in Italy earlier this year. After a short audition, he was offered the role.
The cinematic release of Fighting Talk next year will see Mark Lester, 57, return to the screens in his first movie role since Crossed Swords in 1977.
Lester is god-father to Fiddes’ daughter, Madison and have been close friends since meeting through Michael Jackson in 1999. Lester was convinced to star in the movie by Fiddes.
Lester is best known for playing the lead role in the 1968 musical film Oliver! and 1971 film Black Beauty.
Publicist Daniel J Webb said: “I can confirm that actor Mark Lester will be returning to the big screens next year after being cast in the movie Fighting Talk.
“I can further confirm that he will be visiting an undisclosed Swindon location in September to shoot a scene for the film with his co-stars Matt Fiddes and Silvio Simac.
“Unfortunately, for security reasons, I cannot reveal that location, or dates of the filming.”
