Run Fatboy..... Run

The classic rom-com was filmed in part on this road

Location: 21 Meynell Crescent, Hackney, E9

Description: In this 2007 British romantic comedy film directed by David Schwimmer and written by Michael Ian Black and Simon Pegg - Simon Pegg stars alongside Dylan Moran, Thandie Newton, Harish Patel, India de Beaufort and Hank Azaria.

Dennis Doyle (Simon Pegg) is about to marry Libby (Thandie Newton), his pregnant fiancee. However, he gets cold feet and runs away during the preparation for the wedding.

Five years later, his life has gone in circles ever since. When Dennis discovers that Libby has started seeing high-flying go-getter Whit (Hank Azaria), with their son, Jake, he realizes it's now or never.

He finds out that Whit is running the Nike River Marathon in London, and to prove himself to his doubting friends and, most importantly, Libby and his son, he decides to run the race himself. Dennis receives motivation from his two 'coaches', Gordon (Dylan Moran), his best friend who has made a hefty bet on Dennis succeeding, and Mr. Ghoshdastidar (Harish Patel) his landlord, who uses unorthodox methods of training, such as a spatula.

And so to this location...

It's in Hackney that Dennis Doyle (Simon Pegg) does a runner on what was intended to be his wedding day to Libby Odell (Thandie Newton), from her home, 21 Meynell Crescent, north of Victoria Park, in a very nice part of Hackney, London E9.
