“Doctor Who” companion Karen Gillan, “Black Death” actor Emun Elliott and “The Disappearance of Alice Creed” co-star Martin Compston are set to join the cast of John Mckay’s Scottish indie comedy “Not Another Happy Ending” at Synchronicity Films reports Screen Daily.
Gillan plays a beautiful but eccentric writer of miserable, but best selling fiction who’s blocked on her latest novel since she became successful and happy.
In a bid to break her block, her publisher (Elliott) sets about trying to make her life more miserable, only to realize he is in love with her. David Solomoms penned the script and shooting kicks off end of this year or early next year.
The news comes as speculation ran rampant that Gillan would not be back as her character Amy Pond for the next season of “Doctor Who”. Then last week, Zap2It heard straight from the actress herself that she had signed on to appear next season. How many episodes she will be in isn’t specified.
