Sofia Vergara Joins Uma Thurman’s Heist Comedy ‘The Brits Are Coming’

Sofia Vergara has joined the Uma Thurman-Tim Roth heist comedy “The Brits Are Coming,” currently shooting in New York City.

Thurman and Roth play a con-artist couple who flee to Los Angeles to avoid paying a large debt to a gangster, portrayed by Maggie Q. The duo try to win back the money via a jewel theft operation involving Roth’s ex-wife, played by Alice Eve.

Vergara is playing the mistress of the new husband of Eve’s character.

Parker Posey and Stephen Fry also star. The film is directed by James Oakley (“The Devil You Know”) from a script he co-wrote with Alex Michaelides. Producers are Cassian Elwes (“Dallas Buyers Club”), Robert Ogden Barnum, JC Chandor (“A Most Violent Year”) and Dave Hansen.

Fortitude International is handling international rights to the project. Producers currently hold U.S. rights.

Vergara stars in “Modern Family” and was last seen on the bigscreen in “Hot Pursuit.” She is repped by CAA and Latin World Entertainment.
