“Gone Girl” and “Die Another Day” actress Rosamund Pike is in talks to star in “Greatest Days”, a feature adaptation of “The Band”, a hit stage musical inspired by the songs of Take That.
Ruth Wilson and Cash Jumbo are also in negotiations for the film, said to be a “feel good” flick in the vein of “Mamma Mia!” and “Rocketman”.
The film, being introduced to buyers at this week’s Cannes Virtual Market, has been developed with the support of Universal Music Group so will include a number of Take That songs. The story focuses on five schoolgirls who have the night of their lives at a concert from their favorite boy band. 25 years later their lives have changed in a myriad of ways as they reunite to reminisce about their past and discover their future.
