A sci-fi movie currently in production has been spied filming scenes at Bretons Manor.

The Grade II-listed manor house has been confirmed as a location for film Dream Hacker, which centres around a science prodigy with five PHDs.

Starring the likes of Glynis Barber, Molly Hanson and Mark Williams, IMDB lists Clear Sky Cinema as the production company.

Nigel Blythe, who is on the committee at Bretons Manor, confirmed the cast and crew were on set on April 20.

He told the Recorder the opportunity came about through a phone call made a couple of weeks ago.

Describing the day as "enjoyable", Nigel admitted to keeping out of the cast's way as they went about their day's work.

Nigel hopes this unexpected chance to show off the beauty of Bretons Manor isn't a one-off.
