Oscar-winner Olivia Colman is set to play the lead role in Irish feel-good film Joyride, marking the first dramatic feature from Emmy winner Emer Reynolds (The Farthest, Shameless) and heading to the American Film Market, reports Hollywood Reporters.
The film follows train-wreck Joy (Colman) on an adventure, but ready to give away her newborn baby to her best friend. What she can’t anticipate is that a cheeky street urchin is also along for the ride. Both are on the run; two diamonds in the rough, forming a riotous pair."Once I met her, I couldn’t get her out of my head," said Colman of Joy.
