The low­down on High Rise

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - NEWS -

We have, to quote The Rolling Stones, been sali­vat­ing like Pavlov’s dog since news emerged that Ben Wheat­ley, the vi­sion­ary be­hind Kill List and A Field in Eng­land, would di­rect a ver­sion of J G Bal­lard’s great novel High Rise, star­ring the in­es­timable Tom Hid­dle­ston.

Now we learn that the film will shoot in North­ern Ire­land. It seems that High Rise, which con­cerns an­ar­chic vi­o­lence in a res­i­den­tial tower block, will make use of a “key lo­ca­tion” in Ban­gor. If you are a burgher of that pic­turesque Co Down town, you may have some in­kling which build­ing is in the frame.
