Michelle, 27, was seen filming in Manchester with cast and crew, with newly-released pictures showing her filming a car scene.
Ordinary Lies star Michelle plays Demi, a young girl living on a Salford estate, who is described as an "anxious, fragile and introverted character".
It was revealed last week that Michelle had landed the role in Chris Green's new loan shark film, which marks her first film role.
Former Coronation Street actress Michelle has described it as a "gritty project". She told the Daily Star: "The whole cast are great to work with and it's fab to back in my hometown working on such a gritty project."
Strangeways Here We Come follows the residents of Owen Street in Salford as they get sucked into loans and trapped by the astronomical interest rates of evil loan shark Danny Nolan (Stephen Lord).
The film is described as a "whodunit story that crackles with wicked laughs, wild party enthusiasm and grisly twists and turns leaving the audience on the edge of their seats".
