Russell Tovey has joined the cast of new movie Text For You, starring pop diva Celine Dion in her first film role.
Text For You is a romantic drama based on 2016 German movie SMS Fur Dich — an adaptation of the popular novel of the same name by Sofie Cramer.
Russell joins an all-star ensemble for the movie that includes, Celine, Sam Heughan, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Omid Djalili and Celia Imrie.
Jim Strouse is directing the flick, which is based on the 2016 German film ‘SMS Fur Dich’.
It tells the story of a woman, who, to ease the pain after tragically losing her fiance, starts to send romantic texts to his old phone. It turns out that the number has been reassigned to a man across town suffering from similar heartbreak.
The two meet and feel an undeniable connection, but can’t seem to leave the past behind.
Lauryn Kahn has drafted the most recent version of the script and Basil Iwanyk, Erica Lee and Esther Hornstein are producing for the Thunder Road banner.
