Film cameras are rolling again across South Holland as the area’s very own Danny Boyle gets to work on a new romantic comedy.

Steph Genovese, whose crime thriller Dishonoured was premiered at Spalding’s South Holland Centre in January, is drawing inspiration from one of the world’s richest-ever men, American Howard Hughes, for his new blockbuster.

Forever Your Rose tells the story of Jack Green, played by Steph, a man who attempts to prove that money can buy you everything, including the woman of his dreams.

Steph said: “Forever Your Rose is a strange title for the new film but once people see it and what it involves, people will understand it.

“The main character, Jack Green, is a multi-millionaire who dabbles in shares on the Stock Exchange and has a lot people working for him.

“Jack has everything, except for a girlfriend and when girls realise how rich he is, Jack realises they only want his money.

“The movie is about him trying to find the right girl for him and how he gets himself into some awkward situations.”

Forever Your Rose has been in production since July, with scenes filmed in Spalding’s Red Lion Quarter, Carter’s Park, Holbeach, Long Sutton and Peterborough.

The film includes a guest appearance by businesswoman, motivational speaker and 2011 candidate on TV reality show The Apprentice, Melody Hossaini.

Steph said: “We’re eight weeks into filming Forever Your Rose and I’m hoping that, in an ideal world, the movie could be finished by December.

“Then we’ll have a couple of months to edit it, with a release date in March or April 2017.

“Since Dishonoured, I’ve seen the potential for people in the area to help South Holland become known as an area that makes good movies.”
