    Production has begun on the BBC and Amazon Studios’ Western series “The English,” starring Emily Blunt. Details around the project were first revealed by Variety last year.

    Produced by “Doctor Foster” outfit Drama Republic, the six-part series — which is currently filming in Spain — is led by Blunt (“A Quiet Place”) and Chaske Spencer (“The Twilight Saga,” “Banshee”) for BBC One and BBC iPlayer in the U.K., and Amazon Prime Video in the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand, in association with All3Media International.

    Written and directed by “The Honourable Woman” creator Hugo Blick, the show is set in the mid-American landscape of 1890, and follows Cornelia Locke (Blunt), an Englishwoman who arrives into the new and wild landscape of the West to get revenge on the man she sees as responsible for the death of her son. Upon meeting Eli Whipp (Spencer), an ex-cavalry scout and member of the Pawnee Nation by birth, they join together and discover a shared history which must be defeated at all costs, if either of them are to survive.

    Rounding out the cast is Rafe Spall (“The Salisbury Poisonings”), Tom Hughes (“A Discovery of Witches”), Stephen Rea (“The Shadow Line”), Valerie Pachner (“The Kingsman”), Toby Jones (“Marvellous”), Ciaran Hinds (“The Terror”), Malcolm Storry (“The Princess Bride”), Steve Wall (“Raised by Wolves”), Nichola McAuliffe (“Tomorrow Never Dies”), Sule Rimi (“Black Earth Rising”) and Cristian Solimeno (“Avenue 5”).

    Westerns are filmed at sets. As long as you build a set, it doesn’t matter which country you shoot.

    I knew that I just never heard of a Western being filmed in Spain though. I knew they used Italy for awhile.

    Excited this is finally happening, and has a promising cast and team behind it. Hopefully if it’s good Blunt can finally ride a wave to her first Oscar nomination!

    There’s already a 4/5 review logged on Metacritic from The Telegraph

    “The English could venture in almost any direction – geographically, dramatically – and this is precisely why it grabs you, as unpredictable storytelling with a jagged flair for the macabre. ”

    I love The Crown and The White Lotus but this is honestly my most anticipated show of the next few weeks.
