Ricky Gervais has signed up FELICITY JONES to star in his forthcoming comedy CEMETERY JUNCTION.

Jones, who was last seen in BRIDESHEAD REVISITED, has agreed to join the project as its leading lady, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Gervais recently announced on his blog that Cemetery Junction is the official name for the project referred to by many as THE MEN AT THE PRU.

The picture tells the story of three 20-something men working for an insurance broker in the 70s, with Jones set to star as the put-upon female friend they try to force into thinking that a woman's place is in the kitchen.

Set to start shooting later this year, the project will be directed by Gervais who has also co-written it with Stephen Merchant, whom he worked with on projects like The Office and Extras.

Recently, Gervais revealed that RALPH FINNES signed up for the project after he told the actor that it featured a part specifically written with him in mind.
