Actress Sarah-Jane Potts has been tapped to replace Georgina Rylance in the U.S. Tv adaptation of hit British series Broadchurch.
Rylance exited Gracepoint earlier this week (begs10Feb14) over creative differences, and producers have acted quickly to find her successor.
The Kinky Boots star play a hotel owner in the series, which also stars David Tennant, Anna Gunn, Jacki Weaver, Michael Pena and Nick Nolte.
It is set to air in the U.S. later this year (14).
The film is almost half an hour longer than 'The Force Awakens'.
The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
