Cobie Smulders-Noel Clarke comedy secures world sales deal

31 January 2017 2:04 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: First look image of Unstoppable Entertainment comedy about a 90s Britpop singer.

London-based sales outfit Amp International has boarded world sales on UK comedy Songbird, starring Cobie Smulders (Jack Reacher: Never Go Back), Noel Clarke, Jessica Hynes (Bridget Jones’ Baby), Griffin Dunne (After Hours) and Emily Atack (The Inbetweeners).

Currently in post-production, the film follows the lead singer of a 90s Britpop band whose star has fallen considerably since her glory days.

When on a drunken night out she accidentally enrolls at a university she is shocked to discover that her fellow students have no idea who she is and are far more into yoga and kale smoothies than wild parties.

Songbird was written and directed by Jamie Adams (Black Mountain Poets) and is produced by Jason Maza and Noel Clarke of Unstoppable Entertainment (Brotherhood) and Maggie Monteith (Searching For Sugar Man) of Dignity Film Finance.
