AN ACTION thriller, staring Jason Statham, is understood to start filming at an MOD training camp in Bramley next month. 

A planning application for the temporary change of use of land and buildings for film making on land at the MOD Bramley Training Area, in Campbell Road, has been lodged with Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council by LT Productions. 

A document detailing which parts of the site will be used is titled Levon’s Trade.

The upcoming film being directed by David Ayer (Suicide Squad), from a screenplay adapted by Sylvester Stallone with revisions by Ayer, is based on the novel Levon’s Trade by comic author Chuck Dixon.

The official synopsis reads: “Levon Cade (Jason Statham) left his “profession” behind him to go straight and work in construction. He wants to live a simple life and be a good father to his daughter. But when his boss’s teenage daughter Jenny vanishes, he’s called upon to re-employ the skills that made him a legendary figure in the shadowy world of black ops.”

The film also stars David Harbour, Emmett J Scanlan, Micheal Pena and Jason Flemyng.

According to the planning application, preparation at the site began on March 25. Filming is not expected to start until May 2 and the site will be clear by June 7.

It states: “Activity at the site will be low-level, particularly during the early prep/late strike phases, when there will be limited personnel on site. Most activity occurs on filming days and the late prep days leading up to filming.”

Filming locations have been titled ‘Farm Manor’, ‘Hatties Bar’ and ‘Johnnys’, with up to 200 people on site each day while filming is taking place.

According to entertainment news website Deadline, Amazon MGM landed US theatrical rights to the film, with Prime Video securing rights in multiple territories internationally.

The film is set to be released in the US on January 17, 2025.

The MOD site was previously used for the George Clooney and Matt Damon film The Monuments Men in 2013.
