Here's a bit of an exclusive!

I went to go and see The Blockheads (the late Ian Dury's band) last night, and one of them was saying how they'd just recorded a song for a film called Confetti. Sound familiar? The song is called One Love, and it's very nice indeed.

I also stood next to Phil Jupitus for most of the gig, and he even got on stage at the end to sing for a bit. Great gig.

Just read an interview with Martin Freeman on ITV Teletext page 136 and it mentions this little tiny snippet...

Freemen will also co-star with Alison Steadman and Jessica Stevenson in Confetti, a romantic comedy.

I looked it up and and Jessica is playing 'Sam' while Mark plays the 'Registrar'. Other familar faces in it are Peep Show and The Smoking Room's Robert Webb ( smile.gif ), Julia Davis and Jimmy Carr (!!!). This must be his acting debut. Anyway, full cast list is here...

Doesn't say if it's a film or for TV.

Balls! Did you? Sorry.

I did look...honest...but didn't see anything on it. I do keep doing this for some reason. Apologies, I obviously can't see for looking.

Well... It is executive produced by BBC Films, so I'm thinking a theatrical release.

I like the idea that it's all improv!

'Confetti' to rain down at Searchlight


By Anne Thompson

Fox Searchlight Pictures did not leave Cannes empty-handed: The distributor has acquired worldwide rights to the unfinished BBC Films/Wasted Talent production "Confetti" after screening 20 minutes of footage at the Cannes market, which concluded last week.

Fox Searchlight president Peter Rice said the footage "was funny and bright and accessible, with a great comedy cast."


"Confetti" is a mockumentary from writer-director Debbie Isitt. It features an ensemble of British comedy stars, including Martin Freeman ("The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy"), Jessica Stevenson ("Shaun of the Dead"), Stephen Mangan ("Green Wing"), Felicity Montagu ("I'm Alan Partridge"), Mike Leigh veteran Alison Steadman ("Topsy-Turvy") and film rookie Jimmy Carr.

"Confetti" plunges three couples into a fierce bridal magazine contest to win an all-expenses-paid wedding. Although the cast developed their characters during weeks of workshops, once on the set Isitt threw the ensemble into unexpected situations, according to BBC Films head David Thompson. "It's something in the tradition of 'Spinal Tap,' " he said. "It's a fully fledged film comedy with elements of improvisation. They didn't know who would win. It's a rather funny and emotional roller-coaster ride."

Thompson said that though there was considerable interest in the film from other parties, the BBC opted for Searchlight in expectations that it could deliver a global breakout hit on the order of "The Full Monty" or "Bend It Like Beckham."

"We want to work with them on the marketing from early on," he said. "It was very much in our interest for the movie to travel worldwide, to whatever countries weddings happen in. Every now and again, a British comedy breaks through, and we're hoping this is one of them."

"Confetti" was produced by Wasted Talent chairman Ian Flooks and Ian Benson ("The Weekend"). The film was co-financed by BBC Films, Wasted Talent and Screen West Midlands.

The deal was negotiated by Searchlight executive vp Joseph De Marco and senior vp acquisitions Tony Safford with BBC Films' Isabel Begg, head of business and legal affairs, and Jane Wright, head of rights and commercial affairs. Searchlight executive vp production Claudia Lewis will supervise the film.

The festival strategy and release dates for "Confetti" are pending.
