All Creatures Great and Small star Callum Woodhouse has shared an exciting update on his latest film project.

The 29-year-old actor revealed that filming has wrapped on the upcoming World War Two horror film, Orang Ikan, in which he stars alongside Japanese actor Dean Fujioka.

Taking to his Instagram Stories on Wednesday, the Durham native reshared a post from one of his colleagues on the film announcing that shooting had ended.

Filming for the movie, which is described as a creature horror film, began in October at Wiluan's Infinite Studios in Batam in Indonesia. 

Set in the Pacific in 1942, the feature follows a Japanese ship transporting prisoners of war to occupied territories as slave labor.

The synopsis continues: "After being torpedoed by allied submarines, a Japanese soldier and a British POW are stranded on a deserted island, but soon discover they are not alone. They are being hunted by a ferocious mythological creature, the Orang Ikan, a human-fish hybrid. Unable to communicate in each other's language, the two mortal enemies must come together to survive the unknown."

Orang Ikan isn't the only project Callum has in the pipeline at the moment. The All Creatures star is also set to appear in a new mystery-horror film alongside Heartstopper actor Kit Connor.
