Ruth Wilson, Cush Jumbo and Rosamund Pike are in negotiations to star in Greatest Days, the film adaptation of the stage musical The Band.
Sierra/Affinity is shopping the music-driven project about the English boy band Take That to international buyers starting at the Cannes virtual market. Coky Giedroyc is directing Greatest Days from a script by Tim Firth.
Danny Perkins and Kate Solomon will produce alongside Damian Jones. Take That, David Pugh and Dafydd Rogers will executive produce the feel-good project.

Take That as a boy band had hit songs like “Patience,” “Back for Good,” “A Million Love Songs,” “Relight My Fire” and “Could It Be Magic.” The group is in talks to pen an original song for the movie.
