The James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston is in discussions with filmmakers about scenes being shot there.

While the hospital would not reveal anymore details, it is believed the film is being shot by Danny Boyle and has the provisional title of All You Need Is Love.

And there are national media reports that Ed Sheeran is set to star in the film, which is being made by Working Title Films and is written by Richard Curtis.

A spokeswoman for the James Paget said: “We can confirm that we have been approached by a film company, which wishes to use the James Paget University Hospital as a potential filming location.

Our discussions with the company are on-going.”

It follows a casting call by the Casting Collective for paid extras in East Anglia to take part in a movie being shot locally from April to June. Acle Academy could also feature in the film.

The Mail on Sunday has claimed Ed Sheeran is set to land a leading role in Curtis’s new production about the Fab Four’s music.

The 27-year-old was said to be in talks to appear in the film, which is about a man who wakes up one day to find he is the only person who can remember the songs of The Beatles.

It is understood that he will write new music for the film, which will also include Beatles hits.
