Timestalker: Alice Lowe reincarnation rom-com starts shooting

Shooting has commenced in Wales on Alice Lowe’s reincarnation rom-com Timestalker, a tale of one woman’s unrequited love spanning several centuries.

Writer and director Alice Lowe (Prevenge) stars in the lead role as Agnes, a hapless heroine who repeatedly falls for the wrong guy through time, then dies a grim death, gets reincarnated a century later, before meeting him again and starting the cycle anew. It is one story told over many periods, all with the messy thrills and spills that come with daring to follow your heart. Or maybe your loins…

Lowe is joined by a stellar cast including Jacob Anderson (Game Of Thrones), Aneurin Barnard (Time), Tanya Reynolds (Sex Education), Nick Frost (Truth Seekers), Kate Dickie (The Green Knight), Dan Skinner (High Rise), and Mike Wozniak (Man Down).

“This is such a magical project that has come together at the perfect time with the perfect cast and crew, ” said Lowe. “It’s a time travelling journey we’re all on together and it feels extraordinary.”

The cast recurs throughout each historical period depicted in the romantic comedy, as the film playfully travels in time including 1680s Western Scotland; 1790s Rural England; 1980s Manhattan; and an apocalyptic 22nd Century.
