Gritty feature film “Weapon” filmed in Worcester

WeaponA THRILLER will feature parts of Worcester as a backdrop including a hostel for the homeless and a lapdancing club.

Weapon tells the intimate and gritty story of ex-soldier Adam Smith, a veteran of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, who is struggling to make the return to civilian life.

He feels deserted by the Government for which he fought only to be put in a position where he is once again at risk of being used and exploited.

The film was being shot in St Paul’s Hostel in Tallow Hill yesterday (Monday) but scenes have also been shot in Black Cherry, the city’s lapdancing club in Lowesmoor.

Filming on Weapon, which has a budget of £250,000, started last Monday. The film is expected to be released in local cinemas in the summer and the aim is to show the film at Worcester cinemas. It will also be released on DVD.
