As filming continues, AMC have started a viral marketing campaign at Seek The Six. You are presented with a series of surveillance cameras and you have to find the images that relate to the number six. Once you find them all you are shown two images of Jim Caviezel and Ian McKellen. Logging your email then allocates you a number!
I am not a number...I'm a free man!
Jim Caviezel and Ian McKellen have now been joined by four other cast members:
No. 313 will be played by Ruth Wilson, last seen in Stephan Poliakoff's Capturing Mary and A Real Summer.
No. 4-15 will be played by Hayley Atwell, who plays Julia Flyte in the remake of Brideshead Revisited; you might remember her from The Ruby in the Smoke and The Line of Beauty.
No. 147 will be played by Lennie James who was in the cult CBS show Jericho and the films 24 Hour Party People and Snatch.
No. 11-12 will be played by Jamie Campbell-Bower, last seen as Anthony in Sweeney Todd. He's also in Guy Ritchie's Rocknrolla.
Shooting has been carrying on now for three weeks in Namibia. When the crew first arrived, a sandstorm delayed the first week's shooting but weeks two and three have been very productive.
There have been further sandstorms and some fog whilst shooting in the sand dunes by the beach in Swakopmund. Filming whilst the tide was coming in also had some drawbacks when they ended up stuck in the sand.
Shooting has now moved to The Village set on location in Swakopmund. This will be followed by five weeks of interiors in South Africa.
Here production designer Michael Pickwoad gives us some insights into how The Village will look with this behind the scenes video.
