Jeff Goldblum And Asa Butterfield To Star In Stephen Fry’s ‘The Liar’
Jeff Goldblum has joined Asa Butterfield in ‘The Liar‘ – a film based on Stephen Fry’s semi-autobiographical novel.
“I hiccuped with delight when I heard that Jeff Goldblum had accepted the role,” admitted Fry. “That uniquely perfect mixture of authority, eccentricity, intelligence, humour and charm is just what the character calls for… hurrah!”
Deadline reports that the feature will be written and directed by Tony Hagger. Guy de Beaujeu has been enlisted to produce.
The film follows the coming-of-age LGBTQ+ story of Adrian Healey. At Cambridge university Healey meets the mysterious professor Trefusis, who may or may not be a spy and may or may not have recruited Healey.
“It’s such a thrill to work with a genuine Hollywood legend who will bring the perfect kooky mystery to the role Trefusis.” Said Hagger. “I can’t wait to see Asa and Jeff working together; it’ll be very special and very funny.”
Goldblum features in the upcoming Marvel film ‘Thor: Love and Thunder‘, due for release in May 2022. He will also return to screens next year as Ian Malcolm in ‘Jurassic World: Dominion‘.
The Liar begins production in the UK next month.
