A LEADING movie producer from the Isle of Wight will be discussing a new British thriller, which gets a première screening on the Isle of Wight tomorrow (Friday).

Ventnor Arts Club will be hosting the screening of Locke, almost a month before its theatrical release in the UK.

Its producer, Paul Webster, who produced major British films Atonement, Anna Karenina and Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, will be the première's special guest.

A question and answer session with him will follow the screening to give the audience a fascinating insight into the making of the movie.

Mr Webster, who lives on the Isle of Wight and who is a member of Ventnor Arts Club, makes a return to the venue following a similar event for the screening of Anna Karenina.

Locke, which stars Tom Hardy, centres on a single phone call to a successful construction manager, which causes his life to unravel as he drives home.

The movie took just six days to shoot on a shoestring budget.

Stephen Izatt, of Ventnor Arts Club, said: "There will be quite a night in store for the club’s members and others lucky enough to bag a ticket.

"Paul is rightly very proud of this movie. The process of making it is as fascinating as the end result."

This is a pre-paid bookings only event, with ticket sales to be donated to charity.
