Thompson U-Turns Over Film
British actress EMMA THOMPSON will star in new movie FAST FORWARD, after insisting she wouldn't cast herself in the romantic comedy.
Thompson, who co-wrote the film with HIGH FIDELITY author NICK HORNBY, announced she and husband GREG WISE wouldn't take the romantic leads because their established relationship would detract from the on-screen tension.
But the actress has made a partial u-turn and will now star herself.
Hornby reveals, "The film is about a woman who finds a movie trailer of her life and Emma will play that woman. They haven't cast the male lead yet, but it won't be HUGH GRANT."19/11/2004 14:07
