EXCLUSIVE: The cast for Universal and Working Title’s untitled Danny Boyle-directed, Richard Curtis-scripted comedy keeps expanding with Sophia Di Martino (Channel 4’s Flowers), Joel Fry (Paddington 2, HBO’s Game of Thrones) and Harry Michell (Chubby Funny) joining the already announced Lily James, Himesh Patel, Kate McKinnon and Ana de Armas.
Di Martino plays the role of Carol who is the best friend to Lily James’ character. Storyline is under wraps. This movie has come together quite quickly for a Sept. 13, 2019 release considering there’s been solid talk out there that Boyle is bound for Bond. The 25th 007 title is scheduled for release two months after this romantic comedy on Nov. 8 next year.
Uni EVP of Production Erik Baiers has been overseeing this project. Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner are producing alongside Matt Wilkinson and Bernie Bellew. Curtis and Boyle will also produce. Nick Angel and Lee Brazier are EPs.
Di Martino, who next appears in AMC’s Into the Badlands and recently starred in Paul Feig’s Girls Code pilot for Freeform, is repped by Alexander Cooke at Hamilton-Hodell in the UK, Inphenate, and attorney Robby Koch at Hansen, Jacobson. Fry is represented by United Agents in the UK and Michell by 42 in London.
