Nanny McPhee cleans up in Berlin; two new gigs for Thompson

Two gigs for Kenneth Branagh’s former Mrs today.

Emma Thompson (“Harry Potter”) is in negotiations to join Richard LaGravenese’s supernatural love story “Beautiful Creatures”, as well as “Love Punch” which reteams her with “Last Chance Harvey” helmer Joel Hopkins.

In the former, Thompson will play the dual role of Mrs. Lincoln, a small town religious zealot, and Sarafine, who is the dark witch who possesses her. Viola Davis is also onboard.

In “Love Punch”, which teams the British actress with former 007 Pierce Brosnan, “the duo play a divorced couple on the track of an unscrupulous businessman who has stolen their retirement money.”
