Imogen Poots has signed to star opposite Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette and Emile Hirsh in French filmmaker Pascal Chaumeil's A Long Way Down. The script details the story of four disparate individuals who meet one another on a London roof top on New Year's Eve all with the same intention to commit suicide. Instead of jumping, these complete strangers make a pact to stay alive and stay together until Valentine's Day, at least.
Marking Chaumeil's English-language debut, the project is an adaptation of Nick Hornby's novel of the same name and is being produced by Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey via the duo's Wildgaze Films. According to THR, BBC Films, the pubcaster's standalone movie-making unit, has come aboard as equity co-financier and U.K. broadcaster. Making its market debut at the Cannes' Marche du Film, sales banner Hanway Films has inked deals with Lionsgate for U.K. rights while DCM, formerly Delphi, has taken the title for German speaking Europe and Svensk signed for Scandinavia. Chaumeil directs from a script by Jack Thorne (The Scouting Book for Boys) with shooting scheduled to start in September on location in London.
