Nick Forst is set to star in comedy Cuban Fury. Also featuring Olivia Colman, Rashida Jones and Chris O’Dowd, the film is James Giffith’s feature film debut.
Co-financed by Studio Canal, Film 4 and the BFI Film Fund, Cuban Fury tells the story of Nick Frost’s ascent to being a salsa dancer despite a troubled history- and the actor promises he does all of his own dancing in the film.
Nick Frost first approached Nira Park with the line ‘how would you feel if I said we should do a film where I DANCE A LOT. Imagine me in tightly fitted sequinned garments with a lot of slow-mo’.
Rashida Jones is set to play Frost’s boss, O’Dowd his alpha-male colleague whilst Colman will play his sister Sam. The film is scheduled for release in spring 2013.
