Karen Gillan is set to star in her very own film, a comedy about a writer with writer’s block bought on by happiness and success.
Not Another Happy Ending, directed by John McKay (Crush), will see Gillan’s character go through turmoil as she suffers the block until her publisher decides to help her out and get her writing again only to discover that (shock, horror) he’s in love with her.
The film will also star Emun Elliot (Game of Thrones) opposite Gillan, McKay remarked:
“We have two of the newest, hottest, sexiest pair of lead actors out of Scotland.”
And indeed that is something to be excited about. What does create an ominous feeling however is that filming is due to start at the end of 2011 or possibly early 2012. Isn’t this when Karen should be filming more Doctor Who?
Recently, the BBC announced that the next batch of episodes of Doctor Who that they ordered would be shown partly in 2012 and partly in 2013. Could part of the reason for this be so that the stars of the show can pursue other roles whilst remaining in Doctor Who? Or could it just be that it’s time for Amy and Rory to move on from their life in the TARDIS and finally settle down in upper Leadworth?
Guess we’ll find out soon…
