Filming on Young Adam has just kicked off in Clydebank, Glasgow, Scotland. Ewan McGregor, the films lead, spoke to BBCi about shooting in his home country, "There is a wealth of talented technicians in Scotland. They are some of the best in Europe but they don't get recognition," he said. "We also have got some great actors as well." The film is being produced in conjunction with the Glasgow Film Office, who helped fund films like Trainspotting and My Name Is Joe.

There's a promo pic of the film's three lead actors, that's Ewan, Tilda Swinton and Emily Mortimer over at BBCi.

Thanks to Josie over at Mad About Ewan for the details and lead.
