British comedian Matt Lucas will star in Jonas Akerlund’s comedy feature Small Apartments, set to start filming in late March.

Akerlund will direct from cartoonist Chris Millis’ adaptation of his own novella of the same name about a simple man and his neighbours dealing with murder, mayhem and the search for happiness.  

Deep Sky, Silver Nitrate, Amuse Entertainment and Bonnie Timmerman are producing and Ben Feingold’s Sense And Sensibility Ventures is co-financing with Silver Nitrate.

Lucas’ credits include the BBC hit series Little Britain and he portrayed Tweedledum and Tweedledee in Alice In Wonderland.
