Richard Curtis Movie Shoots in Cornwall

(Updated 8:29am 30th July 2012)
Filming of the new Richard Curtis movie is getting underway in Cornwall.
The director is shooting time travel tale About Time around the St Austell area this summer.
Stars Bill Nighy and Rachel McAdams have been spotted soaking up the sun at the beach nearby.
Local restaurant owner Tom Bradbury has told Pirate FM that at first, he did not recognise them: "Some customers started raising questions about who they were and if it was them. At which point, everyone started flipping out their iphones and Google searching images and stuff like that and it turned out to be correct. The local rumour mill started kicking in and everyone realised they'd started filming quite a big new film nearby.
"We are a relatively new restaurant as well so to have the privilege of Hollywood A-listers and Bafta award winners, it's quite a privelege to have them in your restaurant and to be cooking for them."
