Noel Clarke Likes “Fast Girls”

British actor Noel Clarke (“Centurion,” “Heartless,” TV’s “Doctor Who”) will pen, produce and potentially direct the Rocky-esque sporting drama “Fast Girls” reports The Press Association.

The story will follow a group of female athletes hoping to compete at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Jay Basu is co-writing with Clarke, while Damian Jones (“Adulthood,” “Kidulthood”) will produce.

Jones is also attached to produce a Margaret Thatcher biopic about the events that lead to the Falklands War. Abi Morgan will pen the script.
