Colin Firth Will Stage His Own Death With Emily Blunt


Hey, two of your favorite Brits are working together! At Cannes, Focus is selling a dark comedy that will star newly minted Oscar winner Colin Firth as a man who fakes his own death to escape his family and hated job, then meets Emily Blunt and embarks on a series of adventures with her where they break into homes and impersonate the people inside. The untitled project will be helmed by first-time director Dante Ariola, but with that cast, we think he'll manage. [Indiewire]
