Reuniting The Rubins

Timothy Spall (“The King's Speech”) stars in “Reuniting The Rubins,” a British family comedy debuting from Monterey Media March 23 at the Laemmle NoHo 7 in Los Angeles. Spall plays an attorney who’s forced to postpone his retirement when his persuasive mother (ex-Bond girl Honor Blackman) convinces him to reunite his contentious, politically divergent adult children for a holiday celebration.

Moving up from commercials, debut feature director Yoav Factor has also cast James Callis (“Battlestar Galactica”), Rhona Mitra (“Underworld”) and Blake Harrison (“The Inbetweeners”) to co-star. Spall recently came off “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” playing Wormtail and has close to a half-dozen film and TV projects lined up.
