Hollywood stars Scarlett Johansson and Sienna Miller pictured shooting movie scenes in a small Hampshire village

The HOLLYWOOD stars descended on a small Hampshire hamlet to shoot scenes for a new movie.

Superstars such as Scarlett Johansson and Sienna Miller were filming scenes for Kristen Scott Thomas’ directorial debut in Ashley, a hamlet near Stockbridge, on Monday June 6.

Actress Emily Beecham was also among the stars, as they appeared to be filming a wedding scene for a couple played by Kirsten Scott Thomas and James Fleet.

The scenes were filmed at St. Mary’s Church, a historic Anglican church.

A resident, who is part of Friends of Ashley Church, said: ‘There was definitely some filming this weekend, in St Mary’s Church. The roads were closed from time to time during the filming.

The film does not yet have an official title, but has the working title of My Mother’s Wedding.

Scott Thomas had spent years adapting Elizabeth Jane Howard’s 1959 novel The Sea Change, but failed to get the project financed.

While the script for her new project is being kept under wraps, Miller, Johansson and Beecham are said to play three sisters in it.

Scarlett Johansson was recently spotted at two Winchester restaurants – Kyoto Kitchen and Turtle Bay – coinciding with this shoot.

She was also spotted last month in Portsmouth, apparently wearing a navy uniform on HMS Prince of Wales.

This film is just one of many that were shot in Hampshire.

Earlier this week, film crews were also seen setting up at the Winchester Park and Ride site in Barfield Close, reportedly for filming for a new Disney series of Never Let Me Go.
