Toby Jones has joined the cast of Bruce Goodison's "Leave to Remain," a coming-of-age story centering on a group of teenagers who have escaped their respective countries and banded together in a hidden underworld of London. Principal photography is underway.

The film is the debut feature of Goodison, who spent over three years researching the lives of young people seeking sanctuary in order to undertake the project. The young cast is a mix of professional actors and non-actors from migrant and refugee backgrounds. A shortlist of individuals was invited to a refugee organization workshops in September, at which point the final casting decisions were made.

Jones was recently seen donning prosthetic jowls as Alfred Hitchcock in the tepidly reviewed "The Girl" for HBO. He's also on the festival circuit with "Berberian Sound Studio," a psychological thriller set in a 1970s Giallo studio.
