Eastbourne was chosen as the film location for the remake of a classic murder thriller filmed in October and November 2009.
A remake of the 1947 movie Brighton Rock began filming in Eastbourne mid October after producers felt that the resort’s traditional seafront provided the perfect setting for the film.
Brighton Rock stars Sam Riley as the film’s lead character of Pinkie, originally played by Lord Richard Attenborough, while Dame Helen Mirren and Andrea Riseborough also star.
Filming in Eastbourne began on Sunday 18 October 2009.
The filming included a number of road closures on and around Eastbourne seafront. These were arranged by the council's Film Liaison Unit on behalf of the production.
