Well the first -i mean 4-6- were filmed in England for bits. But its really good to see more and more films getting filmed over here. Heck Pinewood studios used to be the envy of the world by all acounts.

But i still find it funny that the news broke because Osbourne tweeted. Just makes me laugh.

And they don't need make-up to make the locals look like aliens...

Same reason LOTR's was shot in NZ then.

Good news for the British film industry! Be interesting to see who ends up doing the visual effects for it.
