Judi Dench, Dan Stevens to star in Blithe Spirit

Judi Dench and Dan Stevens will lead the cast of a new film based on Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit.

They’ll be joined by Isla Fisher in the film which is being directed by Edward Hall.

The film’s described as a re-imagining of Coward’s comedy stage play, in which a best-selling crime novelist suffering from writer’s block struggles to finish his first screenplay.

His quest for inspiration leads him to invite an eccentric mystic to his home to perform a séance. He gets more than he bargained when they inadvertently summon the spirit of his first wife.

Filming is expected to begin in June.
