Lucy Punch, Derek Jacobi Cast in Romantic Comedy 'Of Corset's Mine'
The movie will be touted to buyers at the upcoming Marche du Film in Cannes by The Works International.
LONDON – Jason Connery's Of Corset's Mine has secured the cross-dressing chops of William Moseley, Camilla Belle, Derek Jacobi, Christine Baranski and Lucy Punch for what is billed as a sexy period comedy.
Written by Sharon Soboil, the Connery-directed film has also secured the worldwide sales services of the U.K.'s Works International ahead of the upcoming Marche du Film in Cannes.
The script details the story of a 19th century womanizing aristocrat who is forced to disguise himself as a woman to save his sister’s inheritance, at the expense of losing the love of his life.
Billed as a comedy of errors with corsets, the movie is set to start shooting in Ireland in June this year and is produced by Jasper Graham and Kelley Reynolds.
