British actress Kristin Scott Thomas is among the stars to arrive on the Isle of Man for filming on a new movie.

Work on The Walker, also starring Lauren Bacall and former Cheers Actor Woody Harrelson, was due to get under way on Thursday.

It follows the story of Carter Page, a society "walker" who acts as an escort for the wives of the rich and powerful.

Filming on Miss Potter, starring Renee Zellweger and Ewan McGregor, finished on the island earlier this week.

Department of Trade and Industry minister Alex Downie said: "We're delighted to welcome such Hollywood legends to the Island and hope that they enjoy their time here.

"The calibre of actors filming on the Island is representative of the quality of our films and we are looking forward to a busy summer in terms of production."

The Walker's cast and crew are expected to be on the Isle of Man until 5 May when the production will move to Washington DC.
