Movie Casting News: Emily Blunt in talks to join The Young Victoria co-star Rupert Friend in his feature film directorial debut!

Almost a year ago (December 2013), Rupert Friend did a Q&A - Homeland star Rupert Friend on his WhoSay account and in one of the fan questions he answered that he will be working together again and reuniting with his The Young Victoria co-star This got me excited as I loved them in TYV movie. I haven't heard anything about this project in a long time though until today as it's finally happening and it's been reported that is in talks to join and co-star with Rupert again in the feature film Barton & Charlie & Checco & Bill, which he wrote, is co-producing, and is directing.

Here's what he said on his Q&A via his WhoSay account:
@Roz Cole What are you doing besides Homeland, and when will you let your lovely British accent loose?  
Writing music with Kairos 4tet, thinking about a music video for Chris Garneau with director Daniel Stesson, prepping the feature I wrote in which Emily Blunt and I will act together and I will direct, and keeping a couple of cracking short films on the back burner for when I meet someone who wants to get started in film finance! P.S., my accent gets loose whenever it wants to! (But if it’s an English one you’re after, check out "Starred Up" and "Meet Me in Montenegro" next year...)
