Murphy right for ‘Girl’

Historical pic fleshes out supporting cast

LONDON — Cillian Murphy, fresh from the lead role in “28 Days Later,” has joined the cast of “Girl With a Pearl Earring,” along with Alakina Mann (“The Others”), Judy Parfitt (“ER”) and Essie Davis.

This quartet rounds out the supporting cast of the movie, which stars Colin Firth, Scarlett Johansson and Tom Wilkinson.

Peter Webber is directing this adaptation of Tracey Chevalier’s bestselling novel about the relationship between 17th century Dutch painter Jan Vermeer and his maidservant. Shooting will start Nov. 18 in Luxembourg.

Pic is being produced by Andy Paterson and Anand Tucker of Archer Street, with Jimmy de Brabant co-producing for Luxembourg’s Delux.

Pathe coin

Pathe Pictures, backed by lottery coin from the U.K.’s Film Council, is expected to co-finance the pic with Inside Track, a new equity fund from Ingenious Media.

Lions Gate is taking North American rights and Pathe Intl. is handling foreign sales.
