[First Look] Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman Board Train on ‘The Railway Man’ Set

Written by on May 2, 2012 

With shooting kicking off this week, our first glimpse into the promising drama The Railway Man has arrived. Starring Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman the WWII post-traumatic stress story is directed by Jonathan Teplitzky, who comes off the Matthew Goode drama Burning Man. These first set pictures from the UK feature our main leads on a train station and at least one of the below pictures proves Firth is no method actor, as his moustache is 100% fake. That’s about all there is to glean, so check them out below via a Firth Facebook fan group.

Railway Man is based on the life of Eric Lomax (Firth), a man who found himself the victim of torture on the part of interrogators in a Japanese POW camp during World War II. (He’ll be played by War Horse‘s Jeremy Irvine in these flashback scenes.) After years of haunted memories, his wife, Patti (Kidman), staged a reunion with one of his captors, played by Hiroyuki SanadaStellan Skarsgård rounds out the cast as one of Lomax’s friends from the war.

Expect a 2013 release for The Railway Man, which continues to film in Scotland for 10 week, followed by a Thailand in late May and then wrapping in Australia in early June.
