Modern Life is Rubbish gears up
Freya Mavor is lining up to start filming Modern Life is Rubbish, with an anticipated start date of mid-October.
The film, which takes its name from a 1993 Blur album, centres on a couple's break up after ten years, and follows key moments in their relationship through their music collection, which they must divide up. It has been developed as a feature from a short film made in 2009; the project reunites writer Philip Gawthorne and director Daniel Gill. Dominic Norris produces for Serotonin Films.
Mavor is a previous Star of Tomorrow: best known for her role in Skins, lately she appeared in Sunshine on Leith and is currently filming her role in the big screen adaptation of Julian Barnes' The Sense of an Ending.
A lead actor is to be announced shortly.
From 17th September, subscribers to PI can see more details on Modern Life is Rubbish, including the studio, line producer and location manager.
