'Dram-atic' thriller

Acclaimed file director Ken Loach will soon come to Scotland to film a dramatic new thriller set at a whisky distillery.

Sources told The Scotsman that Loach had initially wanted to film Paul Laverty’s story, which centres around the auction of a barrel of rare whisky, at the Bruichladdich distillery on Islay.

Problems with filming on location will now see the unnamed project being shot in a warehouse on the outskirts of Glasgow.

Mark Reynier, the managing director of the Bruichladdich distillery, told the newspaper: "Basically, there isn’t enough accommodation space on the island for all his film crew and everything.

"There was just nowhere to put them on Islay. It’s a real shame."

A spokesman for Loach’s production company, Sixteen Films, said: "Ken will be coming to Scotland to shoot the film in the spring.

“Finishing touches are just being made to the script and the casting is still being done."
