Ramsgate Maritime Museum has been renamed Sandcliff Seaside Museum by film crews shooting scenes on the isle for a movie
The crew of Juliet, Naked an adaptation of the 2009 novel by Nick Hornby, are in Harbour Parade and Pier Yard car park in Ramsgate today (July 31).
Temporary ‘stop and go’ traffic control measures on Harbour Parade are in place. The production company has also requested the suspension of on-street parking bays on both sides of Harbour Parade and at the Pier Yard car park for the day.
Yesterday the Turnlet Films crew was shooting scenes around Chandos Square in Broadstairs. A crew was also at Kingsgate Bay.
The production stars Rose Byrne, Ethan Hawke and Chris O’Dowd as well as Azhy Robertson (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit), Lily Brazier (People Just Do Nothing), Ayoola Smart (Vera) and stand-up comedian Jimmy O. Yang.
The movie tells the story of Annie (played by Rose Byrne), the long-suffering girlfriend of Duncan (Chris O’Dowd), and her unlikely transatlantic romance with once revered, now faded, singer-songwriter, Tucker Crowe (Ethan Hawke), who also happens to be the subject of Duncan’s musical obsession.
A release date for the movie has not yet been announced.
