Leona Lewis makes big screen debut in 'Walking on Sunshine' (VIDEO)

LOS ANGELES, June 30 — ‘Walking On Sunshine’ is a huge feel good film about all the big sing-a-long tracks from the 80s.

The story centres on Maddie who’s getting married to her Italian lover Raf. But then, she discovers her fiancé actually is her sister’s old summer love and they might still have feelings for each other.

Actress Hannah Arterton took on the role of Maddie’s sister Taylor.

‘Walking on Sunshine’ has been an exciting project for the crew of the movie. This is only the third feature film for the directing duo Max Giwa and Dania Pasquini. On top of that we can see singer Leona Lewis making her silver screen debut and it was the first feature film for actresses Annabel Scholey and Hannah Arterton.

Leona Lewis wasn’t the only one on set with a lot of singing experience.

Hannah Arterton said, “I’ve been singing for longer than I’ve been doing anything else really. I’ve been in bands for about ten years singing, songwriting and stuff. And then I trained as an actor. So to get this script that was just all the songs that I have been singing since I could walk and talk, make sound, with this great story about sisters which I really love. For me the story is about sisters and love and I loved that.”
