It has been the topic that has got the town talking, "what movie will be filming in Richmond next week."

There was a lot of speculation surrounding this, with the rumour being that Peter Rabbit 2 would be taking over the town.

But now Richmond Council has confirmed it is the sequel to the children's classic that will be filming from March 31 to April 7.

We still won't know which stars will make their way down during the week though.

Announcing that filming would be taking place, a statement on the council's website read they would be "charging the production company to film in the borough, along with subsequent charges for parking/road closures etc."

"This money will be reinvested into local services.

"In addition, the production company are making significant donations to local organisations to help fund local projects, e.g. improvements to enhance grass area on Hill Rise, restoration of a fountain on Richmond Green and a contribution so the local police are able to put on events to alert people to the dangers from scams at Duke Street Church and Richmond Good Neighbours."

Sony, the production team behind the movie, have been contacted for more details.
