Los Angeles, Mar 21 (PTI) British actor Zawe Ashton has replaced 'Hustlers' star Constance Wu in the upcoming feature film 'Mr Malcolm's List'.

The Regency-era romantic comedy marks the directorial debut of Emma Holly Jones, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

It is based on the novel of the same name by Suzanne Allain, who has also penned the script.

The story follows Julia (Ashton), a society lady who is jilted by London's most eligible bachelor Mr Malcolm (Dirisu) when she fails to meet one of the items on his list of requirements for a bride.

Feeling shunned and humiliated, she enlists her friend Selina (Pinto) to help her take revenge on Mr Malcolm by tricking him into thinking he has found his perfect match.

Untitled Entertainment's Laura Rister and Rebelle Media's Laura Lewis are producing with Blinder Films' Katie Holly and Jones.

Zawe most recently joined the cast of Marvel Studios' much-awaited movie 'Captain Marvel 2'. The actor will reportedly play the antagonist in the Brie Larson-front superhero film. PTI RB RDS RDS
