Set over the course of four days, the four-part drama explores the spiraling repercussions surrounding the fatal shooting of a pizza delivery man.

Billie’s 2018 Calendar
A musical film is my idea of heaven. You can pre-record, you don’t have to sing live. Singing live was the bit I hated the most. I never felt like a confident singer.

Billie Piper has good cause to be frazzled. Not only is she at the end of a 14-hour day directing her first feature film, Rare Beasts, which she also stars in and wrote. Not only is she promoting a completely different film, Two For Joy, in which she plays a charming but negligent mother. She’s also in the middle of her third pregnancy.
“I’ve just stepped off the set, so I’m sorry if I make very little sense,” Piper says down the phone. Poppycock. Sure, she has done three weeks of mammoth days on Rare Beasts, with two more weeks of them to go. Yes, she’s gestating a rapidly growing human. This, though, is the middle trimester, that mythical time of blooming, nesting and heroic multitasking. Piper reckons she’s zippier than ever on the London set; think Keanu Reeves processing data at hyper-speed in a certain sci-fi movie.
“I’m in the Matrix zone where you’re actually very sharp mentally and you have extraordinary energy,” she says in a voice that slightly surprises me in its precise poshness. “That’s what I’ve found throughout my pregnancies. Much further along it would be a very different story.”
Doctor Who and Penny Dreadful actress Billie Piper has begun production on her feature directorial debut Rare Beasts.
Piper will star with Leo Bill (Peterloo), David Thewlis (Harry Potter), Kerry Fox (Bright Star) and newcomer Toby Woolf (Summer Of Rockets) in the ‘anti rom-com’ about a career-driven single mother who falls in love with a charming traditionalist (Bill). She has also scripted.

Executive Producers are Vaughan Sivell, Franki Goodwin, Mike Rattenbury, Will Kane for WEP, Paul Higgins for Fields Park, Jim Reeve and Robert Halmi for Moffen Media, Josh Varney and Ben Pugh for 42 and Billie Piper.
In the romantic drama, The Shape Of Water star Sally Hawkins plays a woman who spirals into a chaotic world after she is left at the altar.
Pic is written and directed by Roberts (Submarine) and produced by Adrian Bate of Cliff Edge Pictures. Executive producers are Mary Burke (BFI), Adam Partridge (Ffilm Cymru Wales), Pip Broughton (Cliff Edge), Meroë Candy (Wellcome) and Paul Higgins (Dragon). Finance comes from BFI, Ffilm Cymru Wales, Welsh Government and Wellcome. DoP is Kit Fraser (Under The Shadow). Bankside Films reps international sales while Endeavor Content and Bankside co-rep domestic.
Billie attended the Two For Joy Premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival tonight, along with Tom Beard, Daniel Mays & Sadie Frost. 24 HQ photos have been added to the gallery, doesn’t she look simply gorgeous! 🙂
Two for Joy concerns a mother whose depression, triggered by her husband’s death, has a devastating impact on her two children: a teenage daughter forced to grow up fast and help control her younger brother, involved in crime on their council estate. “It’s an uncomfortable film. The performances are gritty,” added Frost. “It explores mental health and grief.”
