Danny Boyle film confirmed
As Production Intelligence subscribers were the first to hear, director Danny Boyle has his next film project lined up.
It has now been confirmed as an as-yet-untitled feature written by Richard Curtis from Working Title Films and Universal, and is reported to be a music-themed comedy.
First listed on PI last week, the feature is due to go into production in the UK later this year with Working Title’s Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan among the producing team.
PI subscribers can log in for more details including the names of the UPM, casting director, location manager and production designer.
London is among the confirmed filming locations with Liverpool and Suffolk also on the shortlist.
Working Title has a burgeoning development slate including two major musical adaptations - Oliver! and Cats.
The company has collaborated with Curtis several times before, including on the recently-wrapped Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, due for release in July.
