It's about time...

Shooting starts on Brit sci-fi comedy

Filming is about to start on a new British sci-fi comedy film.

Hollywood actress Anna Faris from the Scary movie films, is to fly to the UK to star in Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel.

She plays a girl from the future who appears to help three social outcasts - two geeks and a cynic - as they attempt to navigate a time-travel conundrum while sat in a pub.

The trio of nerds will be played by The IT Crowd’s Chris O’Dowd, Shameless’s Dean Lennox Kelly and Shirley Ghostman’s Marc Wootton.

Gareth Carrivick, who directed The Smoking Room and Little Miss Jocelyn for the BBC, will start shooting the film next week.

The script was written by former stand-up Jamie Mathieson, who will be keeping a blog during filming.

Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel will be released by Picturehouse release in association with BBC Films and HBO Films.
