Laura Michelle Kelley stars as a young mother who is poised for international stardom.

Ealing Metro International has come on board to handling sales on Goddess, a new musical comedy. The cast features Laura Michelle Kelley (Who won an Olivier award for her West End portrayal of Mary Poppins) and Ronan Keating (singer formerly of Boyzone); the latter makes his screen debut.

Mark Lamprell (co-writer of Babe: Pig In The City and director of After The Rain) will direct, with Judy Morris (co-director of Happy Feet) as musical director.

The story is about a mother of twin toddlers who writes witty songs to cure her boredom while her husband is away working. When she posts them online, international stardom beckons.

Producers are Richard Keddie (Hawke and Little Fish) and Andrena Finlay (Razzle Dazzle, Priscilla Queen of the Desert).   

Ealing Metro International will introduce the project to buyers at the forthcoming AFM and show a promo of the film, which is still in post-production.

Village Roadshow executive produced and plans a wide release in summer 2012 in Australia/New Zealand.
