Thomasin McKenzie, Bill Nighy and James Norton lead British drama Joy for Netflix, and here are the first details.

Jack Thorne is one of our most prolific and acclaimed screenwriters, known amongst other things for his long standing working relationship with Shane Meadows, which to date has resulted in the This Is England series and astonishingly powerful drama The Virtues. Would recommend seeking those out if you’ve not already.

Thorne, who penned the story with his wife Rachel Mason, has now written the script for Joy, which examines the circumstances surrounding the world’s first In Vitro Fertilization, or IVF, baby. No full synopsis as of yet, but that’s the gist of what we’re getting with the film.

Thomasin McKenzie, Bill Nighy and James Norton will lead the cast, while Ben Taylor, who previously helmed episodes of Sex Education, will direct.

Joy is currently in production for Netflix, and so it’s a little way off. Our guess is that it’s a movie will be seeing at some point in 2024. As ever, we’ll keep you posted as we hear more about it.
