Actress Christina Hendricks is in talks to join the cast of Bomb for BBC Films and director Sally Potter. Annette Bening is also considering a role in the movie, although an offer hasn't been officially made.
The story centers on two teenagers (Elle Fanning and Alice Englert) who get caught up in the Ban the Bomb movement and the 1960s sexual revolution. It isn't known what characters Christina Hendricks or Annette Bening will play. We reported back in November that Elle Fanning and Alessandro Nivola had joined the cast.
Sally Potter is directing Bomb, with Christopher Sheppard producing. Production is scheduled to begin in February, with shooting to take place in London and the south-east coast of England.
