Emilia Clarke, Henry Golding to Star in Paul Feig’s ‘Last Christmas’

Universal will release romance film co-written by Emma Thompson

Emilia Clarke and “Crazy Rich Asians” star Henry Golding will star in Paul Feig’s next film “Last Christmas,” Universal Pictures announced on Tuesday.

The film will see Golding and Feig reunite after the two collaborated on the thriller “A Simple Favor,” which opened in theaters this past weekend. While project details are being kept under wraps, “Last Christmas” is a holiday romance set in London, with the screenplay written by Emma Thompson and Bryony Kimmings.

Feig will produce through his Feigco Entertainment banner, alongside Thompson, Jessie Henderson, and David Livingstone. Executive Vice President of Production Erik Baiers will oversee the project for Universal.

Clarke, who appeared in “Solo: A Star Wars Story” this past summer, will return for the final season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” next year. Golding, who has found mainstream success over the past month with his performances in “Crazy Rich Asians” and “A Simple Favor,” is also slated to appear in “Monsoon,” a drama that will see him play a British-Vietnamese man returning to his home country decades after fleeing during the Vietnam War.

Clarke is represented by CAA, Emptage Hallett, Narrative PR and attorney Gretchen Rush. Golding is represented by Paradigm Talent Agency, Megan Silverman Management and attorney Rick Genow.
