Tomlinson and Zane in Flutter film

Ricky Tomlinson and Billy Zane have begun filming new gambling movie Flutter.

The Brit flick also stars Joe Anderson, as a young man, John, who is happily married to The Boys Are Back's Laura Fraser but gambles his marriage with the devilish Stan, played by Anna Anissimova.

Royle Family star Ricky plays John's father-in-law Freddie, a gambler who is worried about John following in his footsteps, while Titanic star Billy is Edwin, the dentist, a hapless victim of Stan's scheming.

The black comedy about the lures and dangers of gambling is directed by the up-and-coming Giles Borg from a script by Stephen Leslie, writer of Channel 4's 20 Things To Do Before You're 30.

The supporting cast includes Luke Evans, who is about to appear in Clash Of The Titans, The Tudor's Max Brown and Harry Potter's Mark Williams as John's gambling buddies.

The production shoots on location in the north east of England for the next six weeks.
