Bill Nighy is set to join the talented cast of revealing thriller Role Play, which is in production as we speak. 

The mighty Bill Nighy has signed up to feature in Role Play alongside the equally mighty David Oyelowo in the upcoming thriller, Role Play, a ‘high-concept thriller’ which is shooting in Berlin this month. The veteran British actor will be appearing alongside the film’s lead,  Selma star Oyelowo, and  Kaley Cuoco, best known for her work in TV’s The Big Bang Theory.

According to Deadline, ‘Role Play centres around a married couple whose life turns upside down when secrets come out about each other’s pasts. Oyelowo will play Cuoco’s husband in the film.’

As you’d expect from a thriller, things are being kept largely under wraps, meaning that we know precious little about Nighy’s role, simply that it is ‘described as a mysterious stranger who encounters the couple.’

Studiocanal is producing in partnership with Amazon, meaning the project will likely be launching on their Prime Video streaming platform after Studiocanal gives it a theatrical outing. Cuoco is producing the film through her Yes Norman banner, as well as starring. Thomas Vincent, director of 2020’s Possessions will be helming the film which is based on an original screenplay by Seth Owen.

We were already interested in this one, but with the addition of Nighy, we’re very keen to see how it all unfolds. We’ll let you know more about Role Play as we hear it.
