‘Downton Abbey’s’ Jessica Brown Findlay, Tom Wilkinson Join ‘This Beautiful Fantastic’

LONDON — “Downton Abbey” actress Jessica Brown Findlay, Tom Wilkinson  (who was Oscar nominated for “In the Bedroom” and “Michael Clayton”) and Andrew Scott (“Sherlock,” “Pride,” “Spectre”) have joined the cast of Simon Aboud’s “This Beautiful Fantastic,” which starts to shoot this week in London.

The feature project has been greenlit by AMBI Group principals Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi, with Christine Alderson and her Ipso Facto production banner.

Others in the cast include Jeremy Irvine (“War Horse,” “Now Is Good,” “The Railway Man”), Anna Chancellor (“What a Girl Wants,” “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”) and Sheila Hancock (“The Boy in the Striped Pajamas,” “3 Men and a Little Lady”).

“This Beautiful Fantastic” is a contemporary fairy tale revolving around the most unlikely of friendships between a reclusive young woman with dreams of being a children’s book author and a cantankerous widower, set against the backdrop of a beautiful garden in the heart of London.

AMBI will oversee global distribution of the film through its international sales division, AMBI Distribution. Medinah cashflows the U.K. tax credit, and Head Gear, LipSync Post, The Project Post and private investment complete the financing. Kami Nagdi’s Constance Media was previously involved in the script development.
