Daniel Gill makes his directorial debut with the film, also starring Freya Mayor and Josh Whitehouse.

Ian Hart has come on board Modern Life Is Rubbish, a Brit rom-com from first-time director Daniel Gill.

The feature stars Freya Mavor (BBC’s Skins) and Josh Whitehouse (Northern Soul). They play a couple who have decided to call it quits but struggle to split up their record collection.

Modern Life Is Rubbish is based on Gill’s 2009 short film of the same name, which starred Rafe Spall and Rebecca Night. The film takes its name from the title of the second album by British band Blur.

Brian O’Shea’s The Exchange is shopping the project to buyers at AFM.
