Cast added to 'Beautiful Fantastic'

Mulligan, Wilkinson, Eccleston, Crook, Lumley added

LONDON -- Terry Loane's "This Beautiful Fantastic" has attracted a sparkling cast with Carey Mulligan, Tom Wilkinson, Christopher Eccleston, Mackenzie Crook and Joanna Lumley all in line to shine.

Billed as a modern fairy tale, Simon Aboud's script appears on the annual Brit List, a compilation of the best unproduced screenplays from these shores that circulates here and stateside.

London-based Constance Media's Kami Naghdi will produce with Matt Treadwell as co-producer. Compton Ross and Phil Hunt of sales and finance house Bankside Films take executive producer roles.

The movie is set to shoot in March 2010 shooting on location in Edinburgh, Scotland and in studio facilities in Cologne, Germany, the backers said.

The script details the story of a chronically shy and obsessively tidy children's author whose world is turned upside down when she falls in love with a crazy, shambolic inventor.

Bankside will debut the project to international buyers at the upcoming American Film Market. A co-representation pact is in place for U.S. rights which sees Bankside and The Gersh Agency/Untitled Entertainment share sales duties.

Loane and Aboud are both on The Gersh Agency/Untitled Entertainment client roster.
