LONDON — Jane Horrocks (“Little Voice”), Catherine McCormack and Ian Hart are set to star in “Born Romantic,” the second feature by writer-director David Kane.
Like Kane’s hit debut “This Year’s Love,” the film is an ensemble romantic comedy.
Co-stars include Craig Ferguson, Adrian Lester, Jimi Mistry, David Morrissey and Olivia Williams.
Pic concerns three clumsy young men who take dance lessons at a salsa club in London in order to pursue three beautiful women. Shooting starts in February.
“Born Romantic” is being financed and co-produced by new U.K. mini-studio Alchymie, which will handle U.K. distribution. BBC Films is co-financing.
Producer is Michele Camarda, with Alchymie’s Simon Channing Williams as co-producer. Exec producers are David Forrest and Beau Rogers of Flashpoint, which bankrolls Alchymie, and the BBC’s David Thompson.
