The lowdown on High Rise
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.
