A press release today has just announced that the cast for the upcoming comedy heist film with Uma Thurman, THE BRITS ARE COMING, is complete. Apologies for the info dump. Maggie Q, Parker Posey, Tim Roth, Steven Fry, Alice Eve, and Sofia Vergara are all joining the cast. Tim Roth is playing Thurman’s husband, Peter Fox.
The film is about a husband and wife team of con artists, Harriet (Thurman) and Peter (Roth) Fox. To escape a large debt owed to a gangster named either Irina or Ivanka depending on which news source you check (played by Maggie Q), they flee to Los Angeles, where there “friend” Sidney (Fry) immediately sells them out. To make everything right, the duo must plan a jewel heist involving Alice Eve’s character, who is supposed to play Roth’s ex-wife although I think the script may have to adjusted to make that timeline work.
No word yet on who Sofia Vergara will be playing, but more news will come as all the details are ironed out.
