New Film Project: David Tennant To Star In What We Did On Our Holiday

David Tennant has been linked to another movie project, this one a BBC Films and Origin Pictures production filming in Scotland this summer.

What We Did On Our Holiday is written and directed by Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin, the creators of the BBC TV comedy series Outnumbered. The film, which employs the same semi-improvised techniques, follows a family on the verge of divorce on a stressful journey to visit relatives in Scotland. Other rumoured cast include Billy Connolly, Rosamund Pike and Ben Miller.

A family going through a tough time undertake a road trip to Scotland for the grandfather’s 75th birthday but encounter chaos along the way. The two harassed parents try to manage their three astute children.

Speaking to film industry publication Screen last year, Guy Jenkin said: "We're taking the techniques from Outnumbered to make a distinctive but broadly appealing British comedy that reflects much of contemporary family life, and it should be unlike anything that's been seen before. Andy and I are excited to be working with Origin and the BBC on this".

The film shoots on location in Scotland from mid-June till the end of July for a 2014 release.
