Entertainment Film Distributors will handle the UK distribution rights. It is being made in association with the Aegis Film Fund and Prescience.

Harding has said she is determined not to be another pop star who fails at acting. The 27-year-old is making her TV debut in hard-hitting drama Freefall next month.

“I don’t want to try too much too soon, I’m taking baby steps,” she told the Sun.
“I’m working my way into acting gradually – I don’t want people to think I’m just swanning in there.
“There is a stigma attached to people who go from singing to acting.”
“People like to see you as just one thing and find it hard to take if you try something different.”

Freefall is a drama concentrating on how the credit crunch is affecting Britain. It airs on BBC2 on July 14 at 9pm.
