LONDON – Mark Lamprell's Australian musical comedy Goddess is to make its market debut during the upcoming Marche du Film with Irish popstar Ronan Keating and Laura Michelle Kelly on hand to create a song and dance for buyers.

Sales and finance banner Ealing Metro International will hawk the movie featuring Keating in his acting debut and the Olivier award-winning musical theater star Kelly in a story of a young housewife’s unexpected path to fame and fortune.

Set in Southern Australia the movie also features Magda Szubanski (TV's cult comedy Kath & Kim).

A scheduled marketing stunt lined up for the Croisette will see the movie's stars lead a parade of "yummy mummies’ complete with prams and crocs down the Croisette.

Goddess is based on a screenplay by Lamprell and Joanna Weinberg with Judy Morris (co-director of Happy Feet) as musical director.

The project's executive producers Village Roadshow will distribute the film in both Australia and New Zealand.
