Filming is underway in West Yorkshire on The Taking, the new revenge-thriller starring Victoria Smurfit and directed by Emmerdale star Dominic Brunt (Paddy Kirk).

ScreenDaily.com reports that the film tells the story of two women who get even with a loan shark and also stars Joanne Mitchell (Emmerdale) and Jonathan Slinger (A Knight's Tale).

Caroline Couret-Delègue, Head of Sales and Acquisitions at the film's co-producers, Metrodome International, said: "The Taking is a powerful female lead movie that tackles the zeitgeist issues of debt and class warfare in a violent, thrilling auteur project."

Brunt previously directed the horror film Before Dawn.
