Billy Elliot Star Picks New Film


Teenage BILLY ELLIOT (2000) star JAMIE BELL is set to reignite the screen - he's finally chosen his second film.

The 15-year-old from County Durham, England, will spend the summer shooting WHO GOES THERE? in Wales and Yorkshire. He will play Welsh boy DAI in the $22. 5 million (15 million) film, which is based on a real life incident where a German U-boat mistakenly anchored off the coast of Wales instead of neutral Ireland, and took a group of villagers hostage.

Since the success of Billy Elliot offers have been pouring in, but Jamie, who is determined to finish his education, has been waiting for the right part - which can be filmed during his summer holidays. (NQ/WNBTE/NFA)
