Movie Casting News: Tom Hollander joins Rosamund Pike in A Private War

Variety reports that Tom Hollander has joined his former Pride & Prejudice co-star Rosamund Pike in her upcoming lead starring biopic film, A Private War. This will be the third feature film (in addition to this movie, they co-starred in P&P and The Libertine with their P&P co-stars Rupert Friend and Kelly Reilly). Also, they co-starred together (along with another P&P co-star Penelope Wilton) in BBC TV Miniseries, Wives And Daughters. I've enjoyed watching them in the same movies even though they played supporting roles in those 2 previous films and the mini-series they both appeared in. Plus, they did a James Bond Radio Special (titled: Moving Finger) as well. Glad Tom is working with Rosamund again!
