Stephen Fry

Stephen Fry has been cast in British film 'Tomorrow', the first directed by Martha Pinson, Martin Scorsese's long-time script supervisor

Fry will appear in the new flick alongside musician Joss Stone, 27, as well as Stephanie Leonidas, Paul Kaye and Sebastian Street.

Looking forward to the film - the first directed by Martha Pinson, Scorsese's long-time script supervisor - the 71-year-old said: "I'm honoured to join Martha in her directorial debut.

"Through her vision, the great cast, and dedicated team, this story will resonate for years to come."

The script of 'Tomorrow' centres on the troubles soldiers encounter when they try to reintegrate themselves back into society.

Pinson reflected: "'Tomorrow' is a great script. The dialogue is brilliant and believable; the reversals and surprises are well placed and powerful. The characters and situations are vividly drawn."

She added: "It explores the difficulty of moving on from loses and injuries, to forge a life, to find sustaining work, and experience love.

"This is an acute challenge for a person in their mid to late 20s, which has not been extensively explored. For an injured veteran or someone who is HIV positive it is colossal."

Pinson has previously worked on some of Scorsese's biggest films, including 'The Aviator', 'The Departed' and 'Shutter Island'.
