The romantic drama, which is based on Amanda Syther’s 2015 novel of the same name, started filming on Monday.
Kris donned a blue striped t-shirt, a bright orange bomber jacket and a pair of black jeans as he clutched onto a bottle of water.
The blond star looked remarkably different as he rocked long strawberry blonde locks – a completely different style to his former on-screen alter-ego Harry.
The actor was also caught looking deep in thought as he walked over to a bin to put the remains of his lunch in after a quick break on set.

Speaking out about the upcoming movie, French director Amanda said: “I spent three years writing the book and it took another five to turn it into a screenplay, probably because it’s not at all easy summing-up a lifetime.
“Promises reveals one man’s entire life, the essence of time passing by, and what it is that really matters, when all is said and done: the pain experienced in childhood which shapes you, the nights where you danced like there was no tomorrow.”
She continued: “True friendships which act as links, either bringing us closer or suffocating us, depending on what we’re currently going through, your wedding photo which you have to pack away in a moving box as if you were putting a part of yourself to one side.
“And love, the great love story you could have experienced if only you’d turned left instead of right.”
