Steven Soderbergh movie is shooting on QM2 this week

Filming is taking place on the current seven-day crossing from New York to Southampton

This week Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 is providing the setting for a new movie by Oscar-winning filmmaker Steven Soderbergh (‘Oceans 11,’ ‘Traffic’ and ‘Behind the Candelabra’) with an Oscar- and Emmy-award-winning cast and crew.

‘Let Them All Talk’ (a working title) is being filmed on the ocean liner’s seven-day trans-Atlantic crossing from New York to Southampton.

All-star cast includes Meryl Streep

HBO Max has acquired rights to the film, which stars Meryl Streep, Candice Bergen, Gemma Chan, Lucas Hedges and Dianne Wiest. Gregory Jacobs is the producer, with Ken Meyer and Joseph Malloch as executive producers.

Queen Mary 2 passengers have the opportunity to appear in the film as extras.

History of famous names

Cunard has a long history of hosting stage and screen stars. Luminaries such as Elizabeth Taylor, Rita Hayworth, Wes Anderson and Tilda Swinton have all sailed with the line.

Sting performed a set in Queen Mary 2’s Royal Court Theatre, Ed Sheeran wrote part of his last album on a crossing and Francis Ford Coppola sailed recently to work on a book.

In December 2017, Queen Mary 2 hosted a major movie premiere with the star-studded event for 20th Century Fox’s ‘The Greatest Showman’ starring Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, Zac Efron, Rebecca Ferguson and Zendaya.
