Hammer's The Resident wraps in New York

Director Antti Jokinen and cinematographer Gu

Following a six week shoot with interiors filmed in New Mexico and exteriors in New York City, Hammer's new thriller

The Resident

completes principal photography today.

The Resident is directed by Antti Jokinen and stars Oscar-winning actress Hilary Swank and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. The Resident is fully financed by Hammer's parent company Exclusive Media Group

and marks the first feature from the company to be filmed in the United States.

It also features the return of veteran actor Christopher Lee, making his first on-screen appearance for Hammer since

To The Devil A Daughter

in 1976. During the shoot Lee celebrated his 87th birthday and was honoured with a knighthood in the Queen's birthday honours, in recognition of his acting career and charity work.

The Resident is set for theatrical release in 2010. Worldwide distribution is being handled by Hammer's sister company Exclusive Film Distribution
