Jessica Hynes takes a new Direction

Jessica Hynes has taken some time out being a knight in the Crystal Maze’s Medieval zone to begin directing her first film in Folkestone, Kent. The cast includes Alice Lowe, Noel Clarke, Shaun Parkes and Anita Dobson.

The Fight will be the film debut of Jessica’s Inch Worm Productions and not much is known about the plot, but a talent show scene has been filmed at Folkstone Academy – with pupils as extras. On social media Jessica has popped up sporting a black eye, so make of that what you will.

We will next see Jessica in Songbird with Cobie Smulders, in which a rock musician goes to college after her band breaks up.
