FILMING of “Mr. Nice”, based on the autobiographies written by the infamous cannabis smuggler Howard Marks and his ex-wife Judy, who still lives here in Majorca where they were both arrested in 1988, comes to Spain next month, but the Majorcan arrest will be filmed on location in Alicante which is also going be used for Pakistan.

Author Judy Marks told the Bulletin this week that the script has been in development for the best part of the past two years and, apart from being based on the two books, “Mr Nice” and the best-selling autobiography she penned “Mr Nice and Mrs Marks”, focuses on the period in Marks' global cannabis smuggling career when he was using IRA gun smuggling routes out of Pakistan and was involved with IRA suspect Jim McCann.
