Rupert Everett and Gina McKee film the final scenes of My Policeman in East Sussex 

Rupert Everett and Gina McKee were recently spotted filming the final dramatic scenes of future blockbuster My Policeman. 

The snaps, taken in East Sussex, hinted at a potentially tense unfolding, showing the film stars laying on the beach alongside a wheelchair, which Rupert was previously pictured sitting in. 

The upcoming LGBT romantic drama film focuses on husband-and-wife Marion and Tom, who fall in love on the Brighton coast in the 50s, before museum curator Patrick develops feelings for policeman Tom.

Gina, 57, stepped into the role of Marion after taking over from Emma Corrin, 25, who portrayed the younger version of the character. 

In the scenes, the BAFTA award-winning actress was spotted in a dusty blue coat as she wheeled Rupert, 62 – who has taken on the role of Patrick from David Dawson, 38, – in a wheelchair.

Rupert was wrapped up in warm garments for the final scenes – a thick brown coat, trousers and a blue scarf, the museum curator’s look completed with a flat cap.
