David Tennant’s signed on for his latest film, which will also co-star his father-in-law and be produced by his wife.
Romantic comedy Fish Without Bicycles will also feature Lucy Punch, Faye Marsay, Nina Sosanya, Ingrid Oliver and Peter Davison.
The film tells the story of two women’s differing experiences with pregnancy. One is a 40-year-old magistrate, the other a carefree party girl. The twist is that they are in a relationship with each other.
Tennant will play the couple’s neighbour John, an obnoxious Scot, who is responsible for one of the pregnancies.
The film is being directed by Daisy Atkins and counts Georgia Tennant among its producers. It’s due to shoot in November 2016.
Tennant commented: “Daisy Aitkens has written a brilliant, funny, surprising and moving script and I am delighted that she has asked me to be in her first feature – as she is clearly going to be making many many more and I want to be in all of them.
