The film will be directed by Sundance award-winning director Sophie Hyde

Sundance winner Sophie Hyde's comedy Good Luck to You, Leo Grande is set to star Emma Thompson and will go into production in London early 2021.

Based on a script by British comedian Katy Brand, the film will see Thompson play Nancy Stokes, a widow who desires some fresh adventure and good sex. In order to achieve this, she hires the services of Leo Grande, a sex worker in his early twenties, for a night of bliss. 

Produced by Genesius Pictures, Good Luck to You, Leo Grande marks the first joint project between Cornerstone Films and Genesius co-founder Debbie Gray (Mrs Lowry And Son, Northern Soul) who are partners in The Reset Collective, the Australian production and distribution company that launched in May. 

Cornerstone Films will handle international sales and distribution and will commence sales at the AFM, which will take place virtually this year from November 9-13.
