Romcom also stars David Tennant, Kelly MacDonald

LONDON — Michael Urie and Federico Castelluccio have joined David Tennant, Kelly MacDonald and Alice Eve for the cast of “The Decoy Bride.”

The Brit romcom, which begins shooting on June 26, is penned by Neil Jaworski and comedienne Sally Phillips, who also takes a supporting role in the pic.

Urie, who plays acerbic assistant Marc in “Ugly Betty,” will be reunited with helmer Sheree Folkson, who previously directed him in the show. Folkson also directed Tennant in “Casanova.”

Story follows the wedding of a film star and Brit author, who decide to escape to a remote island to marry but become entangled in a love mix-up.

Pic is produced by Ecosse Films toppers Robert Bernstein and Douglas Rae with Paul Ritchie.

Cinema NX is distributing in the U.K. and HanWay Films are selling internationally.

Scottish Screen is also investing in the pic, which shoots for five weeks on the Isle of Man and in Scotland.
