Skellig by David Almond

Sky1 has signed up Oscar nominees Tim Roth and Kelly MacDonald as well as Life on Mars star John Simm for its new feature-length drama Skellig.

The 120-minute "modern fairytale", which is based on David Almond's Whitbread Children's Award-winning novel, is the first project to commence production from Sky1's new £10m-plus drama investment fund.

Filming began today on location in Cardiff on the high-definition drama, which will also star Son of Rambow child actor Bill Milner.
