China Moo-Young’s upcoming film ‘The Road Trip’ is all set to kick off filming in Bristol, UK, and in Spain in November this year. The details about the plot of the film have been kept under wraps for now.
Bristol boasts of several Georgian and Victorian buildings, as well as modern infrastructure. The city offers a wide range of diverse filming locations, along with scenic natural landscapes like the Avon Gorge. This makes Bristol a preferred choice of many filmmakers to shoot a variety of projects. Hence, the city has earlier facilitated the production of several films and shows such as ‘A Discovery of Witches,’ ‘His Dark Materials,’ ‘The Sixth Commandment,’ ‘Only Fools and Horses,’ ‘Army of the Dead,’ and ‘The Pursuit of Love.’
Spain, on the other hand, is known for its vibrant neighborhoods, picturesque geography, exotic islands, and rich cultural heritage, which is why it is considered an ideal location for film and television production. The country hosts the filming of the shows ‘One Piece,’ ‘The Wheel of Time,’ ‘Special Ops: Lioness,’ ‘The Witcher,’ ‘House of the Dragon,’ and ‘Citadel.’ Spain has earlier also served as a filming location for the movies ‘Wonder Woman 1984,’ ‘Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,’ ‘Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones,’ ‘The Bourne Identity,’ ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story,’ and ‘The Bourne Ultimatum.’
China Moo-Young, the director of the film, previously helmed a couple of short films, titled ‘Liar’ and ‘Juvenile.’ She has worked on multiple episodes of the BBC television series ‘Everything I Know About Love,’ an adaptation of Dolly Alderton’s best-selling memoir. The filmmaker also directed four episodes of ‘Call the Midwife,’ which earned a nomination for the Most Popular Drama at the National Television Awards, UK, in 2014.
Moo-Young’s other credits include the sci-fi series ‘Intergalactic,’ the fantasy drama ‘The Rook,’ the mystery drama ‘Scott & Bailey,’ the crime drama ‘Thirteen,’ and the ITV2 show ‘Secret Diary of a Call Girl.’ The cast of ‘The Road Trip’ has not been announced yet. The show is produced by Rory Aitkin and Nikki Wilson, who earlier served as a producer of the shows ‘The Sarah Jane Adventures,’ ‘Upstairs Downstairs,’ ‘Doctor Who,’ and the TV movie ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream.’
