From producer Andrew Macdonald:
“Sunshine is a science fiction film set 50 years in the future. The entire story takes place on a spaceship traveling to the Sun.
As a British film producer sci-fi is the perfect genre. We are making the entire film indoors at a studio in East London. No worries about the weather.
The SPFX supervisor pointed out to me that many good sci-fi films have been made in the UK including ‘2001′, 3 out of 4 ‘Alien’ films, 4 out of 6 ‘Star Wars’ films. Maybe it’s because it rains a lot.
On the first day of filming it rained continuously, I hope this is a good omen.”
