Bille Piper joins Lena Dunham's Catherine, Called Birdy

Based on the 1994 book of the same name by Karen Cushman, the film is said to be a passion project for Dunham

Published: 26th March 2021

Billie Piper will star alongside Andrew Scott and Bella Ramsey in Lena Dunham's Catherine, Called Birdy.

The film is believed to be a passion project for Dunham, who is a fan of the 1994 book of the same name by author Karen Cushman.

The coming-of-age film, which has also been written by Dunham, is set in 13th century England and follows a 14-year-old girl named Catherine (Ramsey) who "bucks against convention," namely the arranged marriage her father (Scott) has planned for her.

Piper, known for films like Things to Do Before You're 30, Mansfield Park, City of Tiny Lights, and Eternal Beauty, will play Catherine's mother.

Working Title is producing the project in association with Dunham's Good Thing Going banner.
