Excitement grows as Brad expected on Falmouth movie set
The Hollywood machine has arrived in a Westcountry harbour town to spray fake snow on a ship during a warm, sunny day.
Film crews were working hard in the Cornish port of Falmouth yesterday, getting the back-drop ready for actor Brad Pitt's latest movie role.
The multi-millionaire star is expected any day now to begin shooting scenes for the zombie film, World War Z.
His partner, actor Angelina Jolie, and the couple's children are believed to be joining him for the duration.
Crowds gathered at Falmouth docks in the hope of catching a glimpse of the Hollywood star.
A false alarm ensued when a blacked-out car arrived at the docks and film fans began waving as photographers snapped away.
However, the Western Morning News can reveal the man who stepped from the vehicle was not an actor at all – but an Australian defence minister who had turned up to have a look around the docks.
Student Jonathan Douglas, 19, who lives in the town said: "The buzz going around Falmouth over Brad coming has been incredible. It's really exciting to think such a mega star will be here in our town.
"Even if he's only here to do a couple of scenes, it helps put Falmouth on the map."
Onboard scenes will be shot until August 12 with 500 local extras taking part following casting sessions in Cornwall.
