Pierce Brosnan and Salma Hayek currently star

“Southland” star Ben McKenzie will co-star with Pierce Brosnan and Salma Hayek in the indie comedy “How to Make Love Like an Englishman.”

Tom Vaughan is set to direct with Matthew Newman penning the script.

Story follows a University of Cambridge professor who finds a woman who forces him to reevaluate his life of hedonistic excess. The twist is that this comes after he gets her grad student stepsister pregnant.

Richard B. Lewis, Beau St. Clair and Kevin Frakes will produce as part of a co-production between Palmstar Media Capital, Southpaw Entertainment, Irish DreamTime and Envision.

McKenzie has done a good job over his career of balancing film and television and looks to stay busy on both following the end of his TV show “Southland.” He recently signed a talent deal with Warner Bros. TV that includes a development component which should keep him busy for years to come.

He is repped by CAA, Management 360 and PJ Shapiro.
