Cornwall, Home to Hollywood!

There’s never been a better time to head to the south of Cornwall. Catch a glimpse of Hollywood heart-throb Brad Pitt as he films the next part of upcoming zombie movie World War Z.

Situated just 40 minutes from Mullion Holiday Park, Falmouth’s famous coastline has proved the perfect spot for Hollywood

Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie
and their children are in town (Falmouth) to film zombie thriller movie “World War Z” off the coastline. The 400-year-old town is home to a famous harbour and the National Maritime Museum Cornwall.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are set for a summer of cream teas and pasties as they film throughout August. The Jolie-Pitts have, surprisingly, decided not to stay on one of the many holiday parks in Cornwall, and have, instead, opted for a super-flash superyacht to accommodate them and their six-strong brood while Brad works on his new £80m zombie movie in Falmouth.

A source told The Sun: ‘Brad thought the family might as well have a holiday while he’s shooting World War Z. Cornwall is a little different from their usual destinations but they’ve heard lots of good things about the county. Staying on a yacht will mean they’ll be able to visit various seaside towns so the kids won’t get bored.’

Brad will be shooting some heavy-going fight scenes during the day, including one on a battleship. Brad will also be familiarising himself with other parts of the UK while shooting the £80million zombie movie. Cameras are due to begin rolling during the town’s annual sailing event, Henri Lloyd Falmouth Week, between August 6-14.

After his holiday on the Cornish coast, he will head to Glasgow in mid-August to film another key battle scene. The city will act as a double for Philadelphia where the film – based on a book by author Max Brooks – is set. It’s not the first time Cornwall has attracted Hollywood A-listers and local TV crews alike…

Charlestown remains one of the finest and most fascinating places on the Cornish coast. And according to the Internet move database, 25 films have used Charlestown as a location)
