Production Weekly reports Oscar nominees Laura Linney and Julie Walters are to star alongside Rupert Grint (Harry Potter) in Driving Lessons.

Written and directed by first-time director Jeremy Brocks, the story is about a shy vicars son (Grint) with an overprotective mother whose world changes when he meets a retired actress.

Brock loosely based the comedy-drama on his own life.

The film starts shooting next month in London and Edinburgh.
