Filming of scenes for Hollywood star Johnny Depp's latest film begins at Dover Castle this week.

The historic venue has been turned into a film set for the Disney movie Into The Woods, which is based on the musical by Stephen Sondheim and the book by James Lapine.

Johnny Depp plays the wolf in the film, which also stars Anna Kendrick, Emily Blunt, Meryl Streep and comedian James Corden.

But the film-makers have confirmed Johnny Depp will not be at the castle.

Filming takes place over the next two days.

Hundreds of local people applied for the chance to be extras in the film, earning more than £100 a day, and the lucky ones are now finding out what is involved in the film industry.

The castle has been used for many films over the years, including Hamlet and The Other Boleyn Girl, as well as for an episode of Doctor Who.
