Let the games begin! Olivier Award winner Luke Treadaway and stage newcomer Imogen Poots will take on the roles of Nick and Honey in a new production of the late Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?. As previously reported, the James Macdonald-helmed revival will play a limited engagement from February 22, 2017 through May 27 and star Imelda Staunton and Conleth Hill. Opening night is set for March 9 at the Harold Pinter Theatre.

Treadaway garnered an Olivier Award in 2013 for his performance as Charlie in the National Theatre production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. He has appeared onstage in Saint Joan and War Horseat the NT as well as in Piranha Heights, Cradle Me and Over There. Onscreen credits include Fortitude, The Rack Pack, Brothers of the Head, BBC’s The Innocence Project and Clapham Junction.

Poots marks her stage debut in Woolf, having appeared in films including 28 Weeks Later, Jimi: All Is by My Side, The Look of Loveand Need for Speed.

In the early hours of the morning on the campus of an American college, Martha (Staunton), much to her husband George’s (Hill) displeasure, has invited the new professor Nick (Treadaway) and his wife Honey (Poots) to their home for some after-party drinks. As the alcohol flows and dawn approaches, the young couple are drawn into George and Martha’s toxic games until the evening reaches its climax in a moment of devastating truth-telling.

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? won the 1963 Tony Award for Best Play; the 1966 film adaptation was directed by Mike Nichols, and starred Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. It was last seen on the Main Stem in 2012 led by Tracy Letts and Amy Morton.

“Need For Speed” actress Imogen Poots will star in Cross Creek Pictures and Smuggler Films’ “Beautiful Ruins” with Todd Field set to direct. Filming is set to start in May in Italy.

Based on the Jess Walter novel that became a bestseller after its publication in June 2012, the story follows an American ingenue who travels to Italy in 1962 during the production of “Cleopatra.” Poots will star as the young actress Dee Moray. Casting is under way for the male roles, which include a young Italian hotelier, “Cleopatra” star Richard Burton, a WWII veteran working to complete a novel and a studio raconteur.

Field, who directed “Little Children” and “In the Bedroom,” is writing the script with Walter. Field will produce through his Standard Film, along with Cross Creek’s Brian Oliver and Tyler Thompson and Smuggler’s Brian Carmody and Patrick Milling Smith. Adam Kassan will oversee production for Cross Creek.

After breaking onto the scene in the horror pic “28 Weeks Later,” Poots has become one of Hollywood’s hot young actresses. In the next year she has films set to bow that include Focus’ “The Awkward Moment” with Zac Efron, “Need For Speed,” “A Long Way Down” and “All Is By My Side.”

British actress Imogen Poots is in talks to play Andy Samberg‘s love interest in the untitled Universal comedy from the Lonely Island and Apatow Productions, an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap.

Samberg stars as a rapper who reunites with his former boy band after his latest solo album flops. His fellow “SNL” alums Sarah Silverman and Tim Meadows will co-star as his sarcastic publicist and overworked manager, respectively.

Samberg’s Lonely Island cohorts Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer are directing and co-starring in the movie, which the trio are also producing with Judd Apatow.

Morgan Sackett will serve as an executive producer on the project, which is rumored to parody recent music documentaries such as “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never” and “Katy Perry: Part of Me.” Universal executive Erik Baiers will oversee the project on behalf of the studio.

Poots recently wrapped Jeremy Saulnier’s neo-Nazi thriller “Green Room,” which just debuted to strong reviews at Cannes. She’ll soon be seen in Terrence Malick’s drama “Knight of Cups” and as the lead in Peter Bogdanovich’s comedy “She’s Funny That Way.”

Poots, who also has Cameron Crowe and J.J. Abrams‘ Showtime pilot “Roadies” in the can, is represented by CAA, Independent Talent Group and Morris Yorn.
