Cobie Smulders may just regret to signing up for British Comedy, Songbird, as filming has begun in an arctic-like Cornwall for the month of January alongside Britain’s own comedy legend, Jessica Hynes.

Songbird is the fourth in the line of original features from writer/director Jamie Adams (Brokeback Mountain) who has teamed up with Noel Clarke and Jason Maza’s Unstoppable Entertainment to produce the feature. Clarke has also managed to get himself a place on the cast alongside Ian Smith (Sweat the Small Stuff, Popatron), Laura Patch (Star Stories, Life Begins), Holli Dempsey (Dad’s Army, Derek) and Emily Atack (Dad’s Army, The Inbetweeners).

Jamie Adams, screenwriter and director said: “I am incredibly lucky to be working with such a talented cast and crew on Songbird; Cobie Smulders is such an amazing comic actor and it’s truly a privilege to work with her here in Cornwall, of all places!”.

We last saw Cobie a couple of months back starring alongside Tom Cruise in Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, She spoke to our very own Stefan Pape, take a watch of the interview below.

We’ll have more on Songbird as the production continues.

Official Synopsis

Joanne Sykes is the lead singer of once popular 90’s indie rock band The Filthy Dukes. They’ve been on the road since 1996, slowly but surely managing to play 150-capped venues. We find the Dukes at their last ever gig, and as the band falls apart so does Joanne; she’s finds out her boyfriend is cheating on her with just about everyone, and there’s little left for her once the group disband. So, thinking about the next step, she drunkenly applies for a university place. University isn’t quite what Joanne expected – far less wild partying, and a lot more yoga and kale. Whilst there, she falls in love with a librarian called Pete. It’s far from smooth sailing, but will be going back to university be the new start she needs; who knows, maybe she’ll re-discover her love for music.
