This is the first picture of Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth shooting a new film in London in which she plays a woman who wakes every day remembering nothing.
The movie, Before I Go To Sleep, is based on the bestselling first novel by former NHS clinical scientist SJ Watson.
The book was published two years ago and snapped up by Liza Marshall and Ridley Scott’s production company, Scott Free London.
Rowan Joffé, who directed Brighton Rock, has adapted the book and has been directing the shoot.
