EXCLUSIVE: Sex tape romance, from the director of Resistance and Jadoo, stars the daughter of Joely Richardson and Tim Bevan.
Post-production is underway on Nothing Like This, the new British feature from director Amit Gupta (Resistance, Jadoo).
The film is produced by Dean Fisher (City Rats, Squat) and is the first feature from production company Canary Wharf Films – a joint venture between Fisher’s Scanner-Rhodes Productions and Urban Way Productions.
The cast is led by Ray Panthaki (28 Days Later) and Daisy Bevan (Elizabeth), the daughter of actress Joely Richardson and Working Title boss Tim Bevan.
Panthaki plays actor Jay, whose sex tape made him an internet sensation and ruined his career. His parents refuse to speak to him, his acting career is reduced to offers for condom commercials and no girl wants to date the man on that tape but things start to change when Jay meets Hannah, played by Bevan. This relationship could be Jay’s fresh start but how long can he keep Hannah in the dark about his past?
Gupta, who also wrote the screenplay, said: “It feels inspiring to be surrounded by such a fantastic mix of experience and new talent on my third feature.
“Shooting this film, having written the script just over three months ago, has felt like a breath of fresh air and I’m enjoying every minute of working with this wonderful cast and crew.”
The cast is rounded out by Rianne Steel, Tom Bell, Dan Skinner, Jenny Bede and Raad Rawi.
A sales agent has yet to be attached and festivals are being approached.
