The indie comedy about a highly strung writer and her publisher is being directed by John Mckay (Crush) and produced by Synchronicity Films.

Dr Who star Karen Gillan and Black Death actor Emun Elliott (a 2009 Screen Star of Tomorrow)  are set to star in Scottish indie comedy Not Another Happy Ending to be directed by John Mckay.

Gillan plays a beautiful but eccentric writer of miserable, but best selling fiction who’s blocked on her latest novel since she became successful and happy. In a bid to break her block, her publisher (played by Elliott) sets about trying to make her life more miserable, only to realize he is in love with her.

Martin Compston will also star in the film, which has been written by David Solomoms and is being produced by Claire Mundell and Wendy Griffin of Glasgow based Synchronicity films.

Production is set for end of 2011/beginning of 2012.

“We have two of the newest, hottest, sexiest pair of lead actors out of Scotland. Just right for the kind of quirky, romantic indie movie not another happy ending is set to be,” said Mckay.

Meanwhile, Mundell is also producing Justin Molotnikov’s second feature Blood or Water. His debut feature, Crying With Laughter, won the Scottish BAFTA for best feature.
