This is the first time the Deli Truck has been invited to a big occasion and we don’t have to cook a thing. Yes… the Deli Truck has appeared in a blockbuster movie to be released later this year.
The crew of 800 turned this part of inner London into a mad house for the weekend. Along with their trucks, generators, canteens, star caravans, miles and miles of cables and lots of security they certainly made an impact in an area of London that is usually very blaze and too groovy to be concerned by anything. And tucked away in this shambolic scene was the good old Deli Truck.
Two entire streets in Shorditch were turned into a dystopian market street in a fantasy city called Ryme -sometime in the future. As soon as we arrived on set, the deli truck was attacked by the props department and turned in a Pho Noodle truck. The detail was amazing they even changed our number plates to match the fantasy city that Shoreditch had become for the weekend. Great to see these guys work so professionally.
But the movie makers were keeping tight lipped, but they did say this is major movie with principal photography ending in May this year. The props department dressed two entire blocks just south east of Old Street Station with new shop signs with an Asian flavor.
So not only does the Deli Truck rock at doing festivals, weddings, birthdays and bar mitzvahs we are now getting invites to the movies..
