British actors Emma Thompson and Pierce Bronson are set to co-star in an upcoming romantic comedy, Love Punch, it has been reported this week.

Directed and written by fellow Brit Joel Hopkins (Last Chance Harvey), the film follows Brosnan (I Don’t Know How She Does It) and Thompson (Harry Potter) as a divorced couple who are forced to reunite after their pension is stolen by an unscrupulous businessman, who join forces to steal it back.

The rom-com is being co-produced and distributed by France’s SND, which is set to start filming in the UK, Paris and the French Riviera this summer, so expect some more detailed information around then.
