Eurovision: Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams spotted in Edinburgh as filming begins
As the cast of action-packed Fast and Furious leave the Capital, two more Hollywood stars have landed to begin filming an upcoming Eurovision comedy film.
Leading stars Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams have been spotted on Edinburgh’s landmarks, Arthur’s Seat and Calton Hill as filming begun.
The two play Icelandic singers who are given the opportunity to perform at the famous song contest when it was held in the Scottish Capital in 1972.
Yesterday, the 52-year-old actor was seen on Arthur’s Seat wearing bright yellow overalls and matching jacket over a plaid shirt while sporting long, damp hair.
The scene also appeared to show miniature Icelandic red elves houses built into Arthur’s Seat and the stars sitting by them.
Today, the two were seen on embracing on a Calton Hill bench as they filmed a scene in which the co-stars almost kissed.
Also starring in the film, which is set to be released on Netflix, are James Bond star Pierce Brosnan, singer and former Disney Channel actress Demi Lovato and Beauty and the Beast’s Dan Stevens.
As research for the film’s characters and scenarios, Ferrell attended the final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon, Portugal and also spoke with contestants backstage.
Over the next two weeks the cast will film at locations in the Old Town, New Town and Newhaven.
