Singer Sharleen Spiteri and actress Dawn Steele are to star in a movie being made in Shetland, it has been announced.

Aberdeen-based director Jim Brown is producing Between Weathers.

Texas star Sharleen Spiteri has landed a leading role as the sister of Monarch of the Glen and Wild at Heart star Dawn Steele.

Mr Brown said: "It's a major coup for us to have them as the female leads in Between Weathers."

He explained: "I'm so excited at the prospect of working with them.

"I think the public will be captivated by their on screen chemistry."

Between Weathers is described as a modern-day David and Goliath story on Shetland.

Carol McGregor, Scottish Hollywood star Ewan McGregor's mother, was recently named as an executive producer for Between Weathers.

More information on the film is available on its website.
