Harish Patel has been cast in the Mindy Kaling-produced Hulu series remake of the classic 1994 romcom Four Weddings and a Funeral. The show has also locked down a connection to the original film, with Andie MacDowell signing on for a guest-starring role.
Amazon Studios has set an all-star cast for Modern Love, its highly-anticipated straight-to-series half-hour romantic comedy anthology based on the popular New York Times column about love and human connection, including Olivia Cooke. Over eight standalone episodes, the series will explore love in its multitude of forms – including sexual, romantic, familial, platonic, and self love.
The 3-part drama MRS WILSON will premiere on Tuesday 27th November 2018 at 9pm on BBC1, with Ian McElhinney playing ‘Father Timothy’, alongside Ruth Wilson, who stars as her own grandmother in a tale of family secrets and espionage.
Screen Daily’s ‘Star of Tomorrow’ Marli Siu has been cast in the coming-of-age tale, based on Alan Warner’s 1998 novel ‘The Sopranos’, about a group of wild Catholic girls who compete in a national choir competition.
Set in Scotland in the 1990s and taking place over the course of a single day, director Michael Caton-Jones’s film follows the choir of Catholic schoolgirls who are in Edinburgh for a music competition but are more interested in “going mental” — drinking, partying and hooking up — than in winning the competition. A cult hit in Britain, Warner’s novel has previously been turned into a stage play.
