The Welsh star and producer of a film being shot in south Wales says he has had to move production abroad due to a lack of financial support here.

Matt Hookings said he wanted to make his entire film in Wales, but did not get the backing he needed.

Hookings is making ‘Prizefighter: The Life of Jem Belcher’, about the birth of boxing.

The Welsh government’s Creative Wales body said it was working to maintain Wales reputation as a film destination.

But Hookings’ production, which co-stars Ray Winstone, has switched from Newport to Lithuania.
