Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant have picked the woman at the heart of The Men At The Pru – Felicity Jones.
Jones- seen in last year’s Brideshead Revisited – will play Julie, an aspiring photographer who breaks free of the popular opinion that women should focus on raising a family.
Set in the 1970s at the Prudential Insurance company, Gervais’ new comedy (which the IMDB currently calls Cemetery Junction) will find three men in their 20s who dream of something better while working at the titular firm.
He’ll start directing it in the summer, once a few more cast members have been tracked down – and Gervais has finished promoting his directorial debut, This Side Of The Truth.
Looking forward to Gervais' and Merchant's next collaboration? Or are you sick of tricky Ricky? Tell us!
