The Proclaimers Music To Feature In New Motion Picture

Sunshine Leith, a new film based on the hugely successful stage musical of the same name has begun shooting in Glasgow and Edinburgh. This universally appealing contemporary musical is set in Scotland and imaginatively features the legendary music of The Proclaimers to tell a moving and uplifting story.

SUNSHINE ON LEITH stars Peter Mullan (War Horse, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1) and Jane Horrocks (Little Voice), George McKay (Defiance, The Boys are Back), Kevin Guthrie, Antonia Thomas ('Misfits') and Freya Mavor ('Skins').

This universally appealing contemporary musical is set in Scotland and imaginatively features the legendary music of The Proclaimers to tell a moving and uplifting story.

Written and adapted by Stephen Greenhorn from his hugely successful and critically acclaimed stage musical of the same name, SUNSHINE ON LEITH is directed by Dexter Fletcher (Wild Bill) and produced by Andrew Macdonald and Allon Reich from DNA, and Arabella Page Croft and Kieran Parker from Black Camel Pictures.

Director, Dexter Fletcher said "With Sunshine on Leith we really have something special that will put smiles on the most hardened faces. Great songs, a wonderful cast and a lot of heart will create our sunshine world."

Producer, Andrew Macdonald said "We are thrilled to be working on Stephen Greenhorn's wonderful adaptation along with Dexter and such a great cast. It's particularly exciting for me to be back producing a film in Scotland for the first time since Trainspotting."

Black Camel Pictures said "Sunshine is a foot tapping feel good project that is blessed with terrific partners on its journey from script to screen. Stephen's heartwarming script and The Proclaimer's uplifting soundtrack allowed Black Camel to attract strong producing partners in DNA with the support of Entertainment, Creative Scotland and BFI. It's a fantastic filmmaking opportunity for Black Camel and for Scotland."

Caroline Parkinson, Director of Creative Development at Creative Scotland, said; "We are delighted to see the realisation of this exciting film and proud to have supported its development and production though our investment in Black Camel Pictures. It features a wealth of Scottish talent from writers, actors, craft and technical crew, not to mention showcasing the musical talent of The Proclaimers."
