Last Christmas Romantic Comedy Movie Details

Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding's Christmas Rom-Com Sounds Like the New Love Actually

It's still September, but we're already feeling the holiday cheer thanks to Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding. The two have signed on to star in a Christmas-themed romance, Last Christmas. The film, set in London, will be directed by Paul Feig, whose previous work includes Bridesmaids, The Heat, Ghostbusters, and most recently Golding's A Simple Favor. Other producers who will have a hand in the film are Jessie Henderson, David Livingstone, and Emma Thompson, the latter of whom also wrote the screenplay with the help of Bryony Kimmings.

Clarke is known for playing the beloved Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones, but now that the show is ending, it makes sense that she's looking to take on other projects. She recently portrayed Han Solo's childhood friend Qi'ra in Solo: A Star Wars Story, and it looks like she'll be expanding her acting repertoire with Last Christmas.

Golding is also doing rather well with breaking into the Hollywood scene. He's coming off a successful performance as Nick Young in Crazy Rich Asians, which was very well received. Golding also worked with Feig in the recent mystery thriller A Simple Favor as the character Sean Townsend.

Although there aren't many details about the actual movie quite yet, we're already wondering if it'll be a little Love Actually-esque. It is a romance film that takes place in London around Christmas time, after all. And with Thompson, who played Karen in the first Love Actually film, as a screenwriter for the upcoming movie, there's sure to be a few similarities here and there. For now, we're just going to squeal in excitement over getting to see Clarke and Golding share the big screen together.
