Finding Your Feet sets up at Twickenham
A starry cast is on board Finding Your Feet, the forthcoming feature from director Richard Loncraine.
The film is now in pre-production at Twickenham Studios, readying for principal photography to begin at the end of the month. Some shooting will also take place in Rome.
For details on shoot dates and key hires including the line producer, production designer, location manager and production co-ordinator, log into Production Intelligence.
Imelda Staunton, Celia Imrie, Joanna Lumley, Timothy Spall and David Hayman lead the cast, working from a screenplay by Meg Leonard and Nick Moorcroft.
The film centres on Sandra (Staunton), a snobbish, judgemental woman who is about to retire. She finds her life turned upside down when, after discovering her husband’s affair with her best friend, she flees to stay with her more bohemian and outspoken sister (Imrie) on an inner-city council estate.
Loncraine’s best-known credits as a director include Wimbledon starring Paul Bettany and Kirsten Dunst, and Richard III with Ian McKellen and Annette Bening.
