The Solution Entertainment Group will kick off sales in Cannes on Southpaw Entertainment, Irish Dreamtime and Envision Entertainment’s How To Make Love Like An Englishman to star Pierce Brosnan and Jessica Alba.

Kristin Scott Thomas will also star in the rom-com about a playboy Cambridge University professor who gets a graduate student pregnant and meets his match in her older stepsister. CAA represents US rights.

Tom Vaughan will direct from a screenplay by Matthew Newman and production is set for early September.

Envision and Merced Media Partners are fully financing. Stepan Martirosyan and Remington Chase of Envision serve as executive producers alongside Raj Brinder Singh and Kevin Scott Frakes of Merced Media Partners, Lisa Wilson and Myles Nestel of The Solution and Jon Amiel.

Southpaw’s Richard B Lewis, Irish Dreamtime’s Beau St Clair and Envision Entertainment’s Grant Cramer produce.

“This has long been a passion project for [producing partner] Beau and me,” said Brosnan. “We are so thrilled that the project has come together with this illustrious group of actors and filmmakers.”
