Samuel L. Jackson was reportedly spotted filming for a “top-secret” project in Scotland last weekend with details of shots for a “major film production” being worked on, and speculation that it could be for the Marvel Studios’ film The Marvels or possibly even for the MCU Disney+ series Secret Invasion.
Filming for the project took place in the Scottish West Lothian town known as Livingston, with the cast and crew of the secret film project using Livingston’s Almond Valley Heritage Centre as the prime shooting location.
However, Samuel L. Jackson was reportedly sighted filming in various locations across the town, with details via The Daily Record that local residents of Livingston also spotted Jackson filming in the town’s church as well as being spotted in Almond Valley.

Almond Valley Heritage Centre posted the news, along with a set image, directly to their Facebook page on March 19, stating that the cast and crew of the project had packed up and left the filming location, see the image and full details below.
Almond Valley Heritage Centre wrote the following to their social post that broke the news:
“A little bit of Hollywood came to Almond Valley this week as our overflow car park was transformed into the production village of a major film production. A string of big fancy trailers parked up in our field, providing base camp for cast and crew as they filmed at various local locations. It was (and is) all very top-secret and even if we knew more, we wouldn’t clype. Suffice to say, we’re preparing a commemorative plaque, proudly stating “somewhere near this bush, make-up was applied to Samuel L. Jackson.””
“Saturday and Sunday were supposed to be quiet days for the film production, with the big trailers shunted into a corner of the field so as not to get in the way of our visitors. But plans changed, (that’s show biz) and the full crew decided to move out today, just as happy visitors were arriving for a mother’s day visit to Almond Valley. Our apologies if anyone was inconvenienced by all these goings-on – these marvels don’t happen every day.”
It has been speculated that the secretive project being filmed could either be for Marvel Studios’ upcoming Disney+ series Secret Invasion or for the MCU movie The Marvels which is set to release later this year on November 10, 2023.
Despite the various reports, and set images, from the local residents of Livingston, no official details have been shared by the cast and crew of The Marvels and Secret Invasion, or from Marvel Studios as of yet.
