Earlier this year we tipped Rafe Spall on our list of actors who are stars in the making. This summer he memorably appeared in Ridley Scott's divisive "Prometheus," and later this year you'll see him in Ang Lee's "Life Of Pi." But before the massive campaign begins for the latter, Spall will be taking time to deliver some laughs.

Rafe Spall

Earlier this year we tipped Rafe Spall on our list of actors who are stars in the making. This summer he memorably appeared in Ridley Scott's divisive "Prometheus," and later this year you'll see him in Ang Lee's "Life Of Pi." But before the massive campaign begins for the latter, Spall will be taking time to deliver some laughs.

The actor has joined the currently filming romantic comedy "The F Word" with Megan Park ("The Secret Life Of The American Teenager") and Mackenzie Davis ("Smashed") also on board. Based on the play "Cigars and Toothpaste" by T.J. Dawe and Michael Rinaldi, the film will find Daniel Radcliffe playing Wallace, a young man who meets the lovely Chantry (Zoe Kazan) at a party, but she has a long-term boyfriend, so he hides his attraction for her, and the pair try their hand at a friendship instead. Elan Mastai ("The Samaritan") penned the script that landed on the Black List way back in 2008, and Michael Dowse ("Goon," "Fubar") is directing. No word yet on the roles of Spall and Park, but Davis will share scenes with "Girls" star Adam Driver who plays Wallace's friend.

Production is now underway in Toronto, and we'd wager you can keep your eyes out for this one on the fest circuit next year. [THR/Variety]
