Romance feature The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight has rounded out its cast with Ben Hardy set to play the romantic lead opposite Haley Lu Richardson.
The movie, which will be produced by To All the Boys shingle ACE Entertainment, takes place over a 24-hour period and follows Hadley (Richardson) and Oliver (Hardy), who begin to fall for each other on their flight from New York to London. But, as the logline reads, “is it misfortune or fate that separates them when they land? The probability of ever finding each other again seems impossible, but love — and London — may have a way of defying the odds.”
Catastrophe star Rob Delaney has also joined the cast as Hadley’s father, who moved to London after his divorce. Bohemian Rhapsody director Dexter Fletcher will play Val, Oliver’s eccentric Shakespeare-loving father, and Bridget Jones’s Diary‘s Sally Phillips will play Oliver’s mom. The Good Place‘s Jameela Jamil will act as the story’s narrator.
Katie Lovejoy, who worked with ACE on To All the Boys: Always and Forever, Lara Jean, penned the screenplay, which is based on a book of the same name by Jennifer E. Smith. (ACE is now in post on an adaption of another novel by Smith, Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between.)
Vanessa Caswill, who was behind PBS’ Little Women miniseries, is directing the feature, which is currently in production in London.
Matt Kaplan will produce via ACE. Max Siemers, Matthew Janzen and Aubrey Bendix will oversee the project for ACE.
