NEW FILM PROJECT: David Tennant Joins The Cast Of Fish Without Bicycles



Screen Daily reports that David Tennant has joined the cast of the new romantic comedy film, Fish Without Bicycles.

The film, written and directed by Daisy Aitkens and produced by Bad Penny Productions, tells the story of two women’s differing experiences with pregnancy. One is a 40-year-old magistrate, the other a carefree party girl. The twist is that they are in a relationship with each other.

David who takes on the role of the couple’s neighbour John, an obnoxious Scot, who is responsible for one of the pregnancies said: "Daisy Aitkens has written a brilliant, funny, surprising and moving script and I am delighted that she has asked me to be in her first feature - as she is clearly going to be making many many more and I want to be in all of them.

“And I am very pleased to be working with Bad Penny again, a company that represents all that is good and exciting in young British filmmaking. Thanks for having me!"

With Daisy saying: " Pregnancy is so often sugar-coated in film, I wanted to write a script that really mirrored the hilarious, feminist and kick ass experience it can be. I’m so happy to be writing at a time when gender stereotypes are being smashed, rom clichés thrown out, and funny women are leading the way in film and TV.

“I’m thrilled that David Tennant has joined our exciting cast and John De Borman will be leading the helm of our crew as DOP. ”

The film will be a family affair with David's wife Georgia acting as a producer alongside Mad To Be Normal's Phin Glynn and Harriet Hammond and Georgia's father Peter Davison also on the cast.

Other confirmed cast include Lucy Punch, Faye Marsay, Nina Sosanya and Ingrid Oliver.

Post-production will be handled by Lipsync. Promotion and brokering will be provided by Charlie Wood and Warrior Promotions. DoP is John de Borman.

The film is due to shoot in November 2016.
