Woman at the Pru
Apr. 17, 2009
Nubile British ingenue Felicity Jones has joined the cast of Ricky Gervais' period dramedy THE MEN AT THE PRU (and who the IMDB seems to think has been renamed CEMETERY JUNCTION). The story centers on three men in their 20s who work at an insurance company (the titular Pru is short for Prudential) in the 1970s. Gervais, of course, wrote the script and will be directing and producing with long time collaborator Stephen Merchant. Jones will play a woman who's constantly told a woman's place is in the home, making and raising babies but who secretly wants to pursue a career in photography. Jones was most recently in the period dramedy CHERI and can next be seen alongside Russell Brand, Alfred Molina, Alan Cumming, Helen Mirren and a bunch of other famous folk in Julie Taymor's take on THE TEMPEST. Gervais is currently putting the finishing touches on his high concept comedy THIS SIDE OF THE TRUTH.
||Jones was born in Birmingham, West Midlands, England.
