Red Dog to make Lancaster Bomber film

East Lindsey District Council have commissioned Red Dog Film to make a period drama set in Lincolnshire during World War II about the iconic Lancaster bomber. Just Jane is a bomber whose restoration has been a passion for Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage centre and will no doubt feature in the film.

LSM graduate Phil Stevens is directing, and LSM Senior Lecturer Chris Hainstock has set up a dedicated Facebook page where you can follow the progress of the production.
