Bridget Jones's Diary director Sharon Maguire will start shooting her new project Incendiary later this month in London with a cast featuring Michelle Williams, Ewan McGregor and Matthew Macfadyen.

Archer Street 's Andy Paterson and Anand Tucker are producing, with Aramid Entertainment Fund financing. Capitol Films is handling international sales.

The UK Film Council and Film4 have been active in development and will also back the production. Independent producer Billy Dietrich brought in investors Bartley Sachs Entertainment to complete the financing.

The story is based on Chris Cleave's novel, about a young mother living in the aftermath of a terrorist bomb attack at a soccer stadium that destroys her family.
