A new science fiction movie starring some of the film world’s biggest names is to be shot inside Carrickfergus Castle.

‘Our Robot Overlords’, featuring Gandhi star Sir Ben Kingsley and Gillian Anderson of X-Files and The Fall fame, will be filmed in the medieval stronghold.

Details emerged in the Assembly earlier this week during marketing discussions about the castle.

Responding to a question from East Antrim MLA David Hilditch, Minister of Enterprise, Trade and Investment Arlene Foster said: “The new creative industries in Northern Ireland are going from strength to strength. I understand that a new science fiction-based movie produced by Mark Huffam, called ‘Our Robot Overlords’... will be filmed at Carrickfergus Castle.”

Mr Hilditch said the development would add impetus to a council plan to make greater use of the location.
