The indie rom com stars Karen Gillan as a quirky writer and French actor Stanley Weber as her publisher.

Shooting began yesterday (July 22) on John Mackay’s Not Another Happy Ending, starring Karen Gillan, Stanley Weber, Iain de Caestecker, Henry Ian Cusick, Gary Lewis, Kate Dickie and Freya Mavor.

Written by David Solomons and directed by John Mackay, the film is about a writer suffering writers block and her publisher’s campaign to get her writing again.

Claire Mundell and Wendy Griffin are producing for Synchronicity Films.

The film is financed by British Film Company, Creative Scotland and BBC Scotland. Post Production will be handled by Molinare and international sales are being handled by LevelK.

Mundell said, “Not Another Happy Ending is a very special project with an incredible script and a stellar cast. Our first day of shooting was fantastic – there was a real buzz on set and the chemistry between Karen and Stanley was crackling as soon as the cameras started rolling.”

Gillan will also take the lead role in Mike Flanagan’s Oculus which begins shooting later this year.
