Juno Temple, Imogen Poots and Maria Valverde have joined Eva Green in Jordan Scott's Cracks.

The film starts shooting in Ireland this week.

HandMade Films International is handling worldwide sales. Garage producers Element Pictures and the IRish Film Board have now joined the project.

Producers are Future Films' Kwesi Dickson, Industry Entertainment's Rosalie Swedlin, Killer Films' Christine Vachon and Scott Free's Julie Payne. Executive producers are Ridley Scott, Tony Scott, John Wells and Michael Costigan, as well as Future Films' Stephen Margolis and HandMade's Guy Collins.

Rising star Juno Temple, who played cousin Lola in Atonement, is Julien Temple's daughter and a former Screen International Star of Tomorrow.

She also appears in the forthcoming Wild Child for Working Title. Imogen Poots appeared 28 Weeks Later and Maria Valverde starred in La Flaqueza del bolchevique.

Guy Collins, chairman of HandMade Films International said 'Jordan is a very exciting director to be working with and has been instrumental in securing a wonderfully strong and commercial cast.'

The film, which shoots for seven weeks, is about a girls' boarding school in 1935 England. The students have a special bond with their charismatic teacher Miss G, until a beautiful foreign student upsets the status quo.

Jordan Scott is Ridley Scott's daughter who has worked in commercials, music videos and short films previously.
