Movies Untitled Danny Boyle Project

THE HOLLYWHOOD REPORTER – Lily James, who appeared in Baby Driver and Darkest Hour, is in negotiations to star in Danny Boyle’s untitled comedy for Universal and Working Title.

The actress is the first castmember to board the project, whose details are being kept under lock and key, but it is known to be musically themed and set in the 1960s or ’70s. It is understood that the role, a teacher, calls for her to sing.

Richard Curtis wrote the script, and Universal is eyeing a summer shoot.

Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner will produce alongside Matt Wilkinson and Bernie Bellew. Curtis and Boyle will also produce.

James has been on a roll since nabbing the lead in Disney’s live-action remake of Cinderella in 2015. Last year saw her star opposite Ansel Elgort in Edgar Wright’s acclaimed thriller Baby Driver, and she appeared opposite Oscar winner Gary Oldman in the Winston Churchill biopic Darkest Hour.

James, who is repped by UTA, has already impressed Working Title and Universal execs by acting as a younger Meryl Streep in Mama Mia! Here We Go Again, the musical sequel that opens July 20.

HARPER’S BAZAAR UK – There is something about Lily James’ enchanting beauty that makes her the perfect heroine of period drama – but it’s her vivacious spirit, warmth and intelligence that bring these roles to life for a modern audience. She talks to Sophie Elmhirst about being inspired by her grandmother’s life in occupied France in World War II, the importance of having more female directors in Hollywood, and the positive changes already underway.

There’s a story that Lily James has heard her French grandmother tell over the years. In World War II, James’ grandmother was a child, living in the French countryside. The Nazis took over the house during the occupation and the family were forced to flee to Paris in convoy with the French army. When they finally returned after the war, they found their home destroyed, the cellars flooded, a fur coat floating on the water. ‘When I talk to her,’ says James now, in amazement, ‘I think of how their lives were completely turned upside-down, the horror of it all, and how she carried on and could be here sitting having a cup of tea with her granddaughter.’

There’s something about that fur coat: how a detail can summon an image, an insignificant moment in an epic chronology of destruction that for some reason lingers. Lily James and I are sitting in a Highgate café talking about World War II because she is, once again, starring in a film from that time, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, adapted from the 2008 book of the same title, by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. (In fact she’s in two, released in quick succession: the other is Darkest Hour, in which she stars as Winston Churchill’s secretary.)
