Turning Eastbourne into Brighton


Eastbourne Pier is being turned into Brighton's Palace Pier for the new movie 'Brighton Rock'.

Production designer James Merifield chose Eastbourne because he felt it gave a more authentic setting for the film, which is a remake of the 1947 original starring Richard Attenborough.

The new movie stars Dame Helen Mirren, Sam Riley and Pete Postlethwaite and is being filmed on location in both Brighton and Eastbourne.
