FILMING is due to start today, Wednesday, for a new Netflix drama series on a street in Culcheth.

Entitled ‘The Stranger, the eight-episode show is adapted from a novel of the same name and will star The Hobbit actor Richard Armitage.

And although most of the filming started in March in Manchester, filming crews have now moved onto Common Lane and will shoot scenes inside a residential property around 5pm.

In a letter to nearby residents, Red Production Company said: “In order to facilitate the filming, we need our technical vehicles for camera, lighting and power to be as close to the property as possible.

“We realise we are visitors to the area and filming would not be able to take place without your co-operation.”

The Stranger is being promoted as a psychological thriller, in which Armitage will take on the lead role of Adam Price - a man whose seemingly perfect life comes crashing down around him.

A shock revelation from a stranger reveals a shocking secret about his wife, Corinne, and he soon becomes caught up in a web of conspiracy and danger.

Speaking about the upcoming series, novel writer Harlan Coben said: “The Stranger was definitely one of my most challenging and twisted novels, but I never thought it would be brought to life.

“I can’t wait to reunite with Danny, Nicola, and Netflix on this remarkable project.”

Also starring in the drama are Happy Valley’s Siobhan Finneran, Absolutely Fabulous star Jennifer Saunders, Paul Kaye from Game of Thrones and Black Mirror’s Kadiff Kirwan.

No start date or trailer has been released as of yet, but keep a close eye out and see if you can spot a glimpse of Warrington when it finally lands on our screens.
