A New Rom-Com Films in Bath It may not be a new Jane Austen adaptation, which is of course what we'd ideally like to see being filmed in the city this year, but exciting news nevertheless as Bath becomes a film set once more. A new feature film romantic comedy is being filmed here over the coming months. It's called "One Night in Bath" and will star John Cleese (possibly best-known for his role as Basil Fawlty) and his daughter Camilla Cleese. This will be the first film which the pair have acted in together.
The film is a typical boy-meets girl situation. The boy brings the girl to Bath. He wants to show her around and do all the wonderful things there is to do in Bath but it all goes horribly wrong.Also appearing in the film will be comedians Henning Wehn and Russel Kane, though on the whole it will be a very Bath-centric production. The composer for the film is from Bath, the producer Jonathon Willis is from Bath, John Cleese became a resident of Bath not too long ago, and the film team hope to cast some people in Bath as extras in the film. Filming begins this June with the release date set loosely as some time before Christmas.
