Vita Ray Productions UK Ltd have started producing Captain America: The First Avenger here in Manchester’s Northern Quarter and for the next month Dale, Tariff, Back Piccadilly and Mangle Street will be turned into downtown New York.
Our offices right in the middle of all the action, so we’ll be keeping a blog of all the comings and goings.
Preparation and production will be taking place between 6th September to the 3rd of October and then there will be a week where they reinstate the streets back to their original state.
The cast of the film are rumoured to be as follows:
Chris Evans … Steve Rogers / Captain America
Hugo Weaving … Johann Schmidt / The Red Skull
Samuel L. Jackson … Nick Fury
Hayley Atwell … Peggy Carter
Stanley Tucci … Abraham Erskine
Tommy Lee Jones … Col. Chester Phillips
Dominic Cooper … Howard Stark
Sebastian Stan … James ‘Bucky’ Barnes
