A ‘fictional village set in another realm with yurts and village like dressing’ is coming to Bourne Wood, near Farnham, as the latest in a long line of major feature films comes to Surrey.

Residents of the area recently received a letter stating the intentions of the team behind Thursday Morning, which is said by those in the know to be the code name of the latest Marvel Comics adaption, Thor 2 (or, officially, Thor: The Dark World).

Set to star Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman, the planned sequence is said to involve a battle between two kingdoms, featuring a 'substantial amount of stunts, special effects and approximately 300 extras'.

Filming is set to take place in the second week of September.

Bourne Wood has previously hosted epics such as Gladiator, Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood and various instalments of Harry Potter, among many others
