Production is re-opening and these UK projects are now visible on the horizon, whether in development or actively casting. Keep these leads on your radar and your eyes open for the opportunity to land an audition.

Anatomy of a Scandal
Netflix’s adaptation of Sarah Vaughan’s hit thriller novel starts shooting this November. Following a high-profile marriage that unravels after the husband is accused of a terrible crime, there are no leads confirmed but casting director Lucy Bevan is attached casting now.

Hitmen 2
Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins return as best friends and business partners Fran and Jamie, who also happen to be professional hitmen. Created by BAFTA-winning writing partners Joe Parham and Joe Markham, the second series for Sky begins shooting early 2021 and original casting director Tracey Gillham is very likely to return. 

Joe Wright directs the big-screen musical adaptation of Cyrano de Bergerac, the romping romantic tale of a man who’s only held back by his extraordinarily large nose. Peter Dinklage stars as Cyrano alongside a supporting cast that includes Haley Bennett, Brian Tyree Henry and Ben Mendelsohn. The project shoots in the UK and Sicily and casting director Nina Gold is attached. Filming begins in November.

Vera 11
ITV detective series Vera, starring Brenda Blethyn and based on the novels by Ann Cleeves, returns for an eleventh instalment. Two episodes shoot this autumn and four in spring 2021, all on location in Northumberland. Casting director Maureen Duff is likely to oversee casting.
