Tony Hagger’s spy comedy The Liar, adapted from the semi-autobiographical novel of the same name by Stephen Fry is set to shoot  in London and Cambridge in late September.

Jeff Goldblum has joined Asa Butterfield in the cast of the project, which is being produced by Guy de Beaujeu for the UK’s Fluidity Films.

The film is a spy comedy detailing the irreverent life of a young man as negotiates school and then Cambridge University.

Goldblum will play a mysterious English professor at Cambridge, who may be looking to recruit the protagonist (played by Butterfield) as a spy.

Metro International Entertainment is handling worldwide sales on the title; further British actors are due to be added to the cast in the coming weeks.

Other titles on Metro’s slate include Marc Munden’s love story 37 Heavens starring Gemma Arterton and Guy Pearce; Andrew Currie’s sci-fi The Invisibles with Tim Blake Nelson and Lucy Liu; and Talitha Stevenson’s romantic drama Late In Summer with Emily Watson and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.
