ForAgyll.com says that David Tennant filmed Decoy Bride in Auchindrain in Argyll which they describe as "Scotland’s last preserved highland farm township."
They also include a photo of David on set. Click here to view the photo (see right too).
The article also says that they believe that David Tennant's movie Decoy Bride will be shown at the Cannes Film Festival in 2011.
Also in the press today, in an article about the "silly season in the press", Mark Lawson in The Guardian today describes David Tennant's Hamlet as "an undoubted highlight of 2008."
This movie only has a cast of three and it's not 100% certain that David Tennant will be in the movie as Deadline.com do not mention him in today's article.
The first connection between David Tennant and the movie was on Monday 21st February when ScreenDaily said that he would be in it and that it would start filming in Canada in May.
On 21st May ScreenDaily said that David was still listed in the movie but that it had been changed to film in North Wales in the Summer.
Today's article says that filming starts in Wales in September.
The latest summation of the plot is that "a husband and wife rent a remote island cottage while trying to repair their marriage. One day they find a biohazard-suited soldier (David's character) washed up on the beach, who warns them that everybody on the mainland has been killed by an airborne virus. That’s when the psychological fun-and-games begin..."
Deadline also report that Sony Pictures has the UK rights to the film with another studio deal pending for Germany. SC Films International will handle worldwide sales. Carl Tibbetts is the writer / director of the movie with Gary Sinyor of Magnet Films as the producer and TV personality David Frost as executive producer.
Eagle-eyed fans of David Tennant will have noticed that Deadline say that the movie is now called "The Retreat" (previously it was "Retreat"). One fan has posted onto Deadline.com "Might want to consider changing the title. There are already four separate “The Retreat” films coming out in the next two years."

Four new photos of David Tennant on the set of Decoy Bride have been posted online. The photos are from the set at Caerlaverock Castle so are from about two weeks ago.
It is unclear who the photographer is but they appear to have first been posted on a Spanish fan website called David Tennant Foros. They were then posted onto a Live Journal page.
As DavidTennantOnTwitter.com is careful to respect copyright, the photos have not been reproduced but the link to view all four pictures is here.
David Tennant is not expected to film his role in this movie yet as there is still another week of filming on Decoy Bride.
According to a post on DavidTennantOnTwitter.com on Sunday 18th, extras required for today's Decoy Bride shoot include a man or woman of oriental descent to be a tourist, a man to be security and a man to be a vicar. Filming is expected to take place in the Glasgow area.
Filming on Fright Night today is at the Rio Rancho High School in Rio Rancho, New Mexico. Most of the movie will be shot in the Albuquerque, New Mexico area and Rio Rancho is less than an hour away.
They are known to have already shot one scene on 26th June when they filmed at 1335 Willow St in Los Angeles, California.
David Tennant play the character Peter Vincent who was played in the original movie Roddy McDowall as the host of a late-night horror show. In this remake he’s a Las Vegas magician whose show revolves around horror-movie imagery. The press release explains "Vincent claims to be a vampire expert, but when the teen turns to him for assistance, he’s less than helpful."
The movie is directed by Craig Gillespie and will be released through Disney. There will be a 3D version of the movie and it currently has a release date of 7th October 2011.
Please see the Fright Night section of DavidTennantOnTwitter.com for more information about this movie.

Today the LA Times Blog reported that actors who are POSSIBLY being considered for the role include "Joaquin Phoenix, Adrien Brody, Nathan Fillion and David Tennant."

Filming on David Tennant's new movie Decoy Bride moves from the Isle Of Man to Scotland this week, starting either today or tomorrow.
The movie is set in Scotland but the Isle Of Man has been used for some scenes as its landscape resembles Scotland in places, plus they are known to have used a harbour there for one scene. This was David Tennant's first time filming on the island.
The original post made about filming dates was by Sunshine on the Doctor Who forum GalifreyBase who posted that "Rehearsals start in London on 21st June for one week. Filming starts on the Isle of Man on 27th June and continues until 12th July It then moves to Glasgow for the period from 12th July until 31st July."
However this left some doubt about where exactly they would be filming today (this information was probably never meant for public consumption anyway!) especially as on Monday 28th June The IsleOfMan.com website posted that David Tennant's movie Decoy Bride started filming there yesterday for "two and a half weeks."
Last Thursday (8th) The News and Star newspaper (published in Dumfries) said that Decoy Bride starts filming in that area tomorrow.
One of David Tennant's co-stars in the movie Michael Urie has tweeted that he spent this past weekend in Amsterdam. Obviously not all the actors are required for each day of filming.

In case you missed it yesterday this link has more details about the interview and a video.
David Tennant was nominated in the Outstanding Lead Actor In A Mini-Series Or A Movie category and was been nominated twice - for the role of Arthur Eddington in Einstein and Eddington and for the title role of Hamlet.
In that first round there were 30 actors nominated in that category and David faced some stiff opposition as he is up against, among others, Ian McKellen, Al Pacino, Chiwetel Ejiofor and also Andy Serkis for Einstein and Eddington. All members could vote for up to five actors in the category. Click here to see the list of all the nominees.
All productions screened in the US during the eligibility period (1st June 2009 to 31st May 2010) are able to submit nominees.
Be warned that an Emmy is far more likely to be awarded to an American made television programme than a British one.
