Matthew Goode (Watchmen) has been cast in the Ricky Gervais-Stephen Merchant dramedy Cemetery Junction, says The Hollywood Reporter.
He joins a cast that includes Ralph Fiennes, Gervais, Felicity Jones, Christian Cooke, Tom Hughes and Jack Doolan. The Columbia Pictures project is a coming of age tale about young guys working for an insurance company in the ’70s.
Goode will play Mike, a go-getter dating his boss’ daughter.
“Cemetery” takes a period look at a group of twentysomething men working at the Prudential insurance company and their relationships with each other as well as the women in their lives.
Gervais and longtime collaborator Merchant wrote the script and will direct.
