Toni Collette, Joanna Lumley and more join thriller Andorra

Romantic thriller Andorra already boasts Clive Owen (Children Of Men) in the lead, but now news arrives via Deadline that Toni Collette (Little Miss Sunshine), Joanna Lumley (The Wolf Of Wall Street), Gillian Anderson (The Last King Of Scotland) and Riccardo Scamarcio (Burnt) are all attached to the movie.

Fred Schepisi (Roxanne) is directing Andorra, working from Jamie Bialkower and Peter Cameron's (The City Of Your Final Destination) adaptation of the latter's 1997 novel. Owen will be Alexander Fox, a bookseller who decides to depart the US after a personal tragedy. He moves to the tiny country of the title, looking for a chance to re-invent himself.

Yet while he quickly ingratiates himself with the locals, including Collette's Aussie, Lumley's matriarch and her daughter (Anderson), things take a darker turn when a woman's body is discovered soon after Fox's arrival. As the local police detective (Scamarcio) investigates, Fox's past threatens to swallow his newfound life.

Schepisi is planning to start shooting next April in Italy, and will round up more actors before then. It is certainly good that he is booking his busy cast in now, especially since Anderson is about to start work on an Agatha Christie adaptation.
