Rob Delaney and Sally Phillips join new romance film

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight being filmed in London

Rob Delaney and  Sally Phillips have joined the cast of the forthcoming romance film The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight.

The film stars Ben Hardy - formerly Peter Beale in EastEnders - and  US actress Haley Lu Richardson as passengers, Oliver and Hadley, who fall for each other on their flight from New York to London. They are separated on landing and spend the next 24 hours trying to find each other in the city.

Delaney will play Hadley’s father and Phillips will play Oliver's mom.

Also joining the cast is Bohemian Rhapsody director Dexter Fletcher as Oliver's eccentric Shakespeare-loving father and The Good Place's Jameela Jamil will act as the story's narrator.

Vanessa Caswill, who was behind the BBC’s 2017 Little Women adaptation, is directing the film, which is now in production in London, the Hollywood Reporter has revealed.
