Ben Whishaw has signed up for new low-budget drama Lilting.

The 32-year-old British actor - most recently seen playing gadget guru Q in James Bond film Skyfall - will co-star with Cheng Pei Pei in the film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The film is about people falling in love without a common language and follows a Chinese mother who is grieving for her son. Ben will play the son's bereaved lover, who the mum thinks was just her son's roommate.

Peter Bowles, Morven Christie and Andrew Leung will also star in the movie, which is being directed by Hong Khaou.

Lilting is backed by FilmLondon's low budget filmmaking funding strand Microwave, which produces films for budgets of up to £120,000.

Expressing your creative side is strongly advised. Take this opportunity to write, paint or play music. Relatives may not appreciate your work, but that doesn't matter. The important thing is to satisfy your own taste. People who are daring and experimental will appreciate your efforts. Don't be surprised if you're given a chance to showcase your work in a magazine, boutique or gallery. Fame and acclaim can be yours, so long as you're willing to follow your instincts.More
