Filming began in August in Alicante, Spain on Juan Antonio Bayona's The Impossible, starring Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor. Screenterrier reported on the open casting call that went out to find the three young boys to play the three brothers in a family who get separated after a tsumani wave hits their holiday resort.

Billy Elliot The Musical star 14 year old Tom Holland (represented by Curtis Brown) has been cast in the main role of Lucas, the eldest brother. Tom, from Kingston-upon-Thames is the son of comedian Dominic Holland, and spent nearly two years playing Billy Elliot in the West End after landing the role when he was 12, finishing his run in May this year.
Little Oaklee Pendergast (represented by Sylvia Young Agency) will play the youngest brother Simon, with newcomer Samuel Joslin as Thomas.

Shooting on the film will move from Spain to Thailand in October.
