Eddie Marsan [pictured] and Joanne Froggatt (Downton Abbey’s Anna) will star in Still Life, which starts shooting tomorrow in London and Southeast England.

Uberto Pasolini (Machan, The Full Monty) is directing from his own script.

Beta is handling world sales on the project, which will be delivered in early 2013.

The project is described as “a poignant, quixotic tale of life, love and the afterlife,”

A council worker (Marsan) is working his final case, notifying the next of kin for someone who died alone.

Pasolini will also produce, along with Christopher Simon and Felix Vossen. The film is a Red Wave/Embargo Films production in association with Rai Cinema, Cinnecittà Studios and Exponential Media.
