First pictures from Morrissey's biopic sees film crews in Chorlton and Stretford

The film is being shot where Morrissey grew up

Sammy Maine, 26th April 2016 The Morrissey biopic Steven has begun filming, with pictures showing film crews in Machester's Chorlton and Stretford.
The film is set to chart Morrissey's deprived upbringing in 1960s Manchester. As director and co-writer Mark Gill explained in 2014, during the early stages of pre-production: "This is a love letter to Steven Patrick Morrissey and dark Satanic mills of Manchester."
Starring the relatively unknown Jack Lowden, Steven producer Orian Williams and casting director Shaheen Baig also worked on the Ian Curtis biopic Control.

Downton Abbey star Jessica Brown Findlay is also part of the cast along with Peaky Blinders actress Simone Kirby as Morrissey’s mother, Elizabeth.
The photos show a crew filming in Chorlton and Longford Park, close to Morrissey’s birthplace of Davyhulme.
Actors and camera crews have been spotted on Wilbraham Road in Chorlton, at nearby Longford Park and along Kings Road in Stretford where Morrissey lived in his years before The Smiths.
There's currently no release date for Steven.
