Exciting news! According to Variety, Sam will star alongside Gemma Arterton & Bill Nighy in British wartime romantic comedy Their Finest Hour and a Half which will be directed by The Riot Club director Lone Scherfig. It is adapted from the 2009 novel of the same name by author Lissa Evans.
A romantic comedy with a difference set in the early 1940s, the film combines the quick-fire repartee of a screwball battle of the sexes infused with the reality of filmmaking under threat of invasion and London in​ the Blitz. It is described as “a witty, warm-hearted and moving portrayal of a young woman screenwriter finding her way in matters of life, death and the heart.”
According to the article, filming will start in late Summer 2015 and the project will be developed by BBC Films.
This sounds like another wonderful role for Sam & yet another genre for him to tackle! We are sure he will be wonderful. Keep checking back for more news on his role in the film as and when we get it!
