Although filming doesn't begin for another month, a distribution deal has already been signed for the release in Australia and New Zealand of David Tennant's next film project. Transmission will be handling the much anticipated comedy What We Did On Our Holiday, written by Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin.
The Outnumbered creators will also be directing the film which stars David Tennant, Rosamund Pike, Billy Connolly, Ben Miller and Amelia Bullmore. Shooting starts on June 17th in Glasgow and the Scottish Highlands. The film will be produced by Origin Pictures and BBC Films.
What We Did On Our Holiday
Doug (David Tennant) and Abi (Rosamund Pike) are taking their three children on a trip to
a big family gathering. They are in the midst of a difficult divorce, and have
asked the kids to keep it a secret from their extended family. But as the
inevitable feuds kick in, a completely unexpected turn of events involving the
children causes further tensions to rise to the surface. And with the
repercussions that ensue - hilarious and emotional in equal measure - the
family are forced to put aside their differences and work together or else risk
losing what they hold most dear.
David Thompson of Origin Pictures said “This is a funny, original and rather moving script with universal themes - and we believe it will delight audiences all over the world.”
UK distribution of the film will be handled by Lionsgate. Distribution rights for other countries are currently being pre-sold at the Cannes Film Festival
