Karen Gillan is set to star in indie flick The List.

The Doctor Who actress is joining Patrick Fugit in the romantic comedy drama, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Directed by Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo writer Harris Goldberg, The List is about a man who ticks off a list of self improvements to win over the woman he loves.

We Bought A Zoo actor Patrick stars as the lead character, and he and Karen will also be joined by House's Jennifer Morrison.

Work on The List, which is privately financed, will start later this month.

Karen was the Doctor's assistant from 2008 to 2012, starring with David Tennant and then Matt Smith.

She has another film out later this year, comedy Not Another Happy Ending, and in 2014 can be seen in horror movie Oculus.

Thanks For Sharing actor Patrick appears this year in political drama TV series Reckless.

He has recently worked on the upcoming The Thrill Is On, a film about the friendship between BB King and Michael Zanetis, in which he plays Zanetis.

Jennifer stars in fantasy TV series Once Upon A Time.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Pisces:

Keep precious possessions safe. Don't leave valuables in a parked car; instead, stow them in the boot. Lock your doors. Create passwords that are hard to crack. Simple measures like these will save you a world of trouble. The last thing you want is to waste time filing police reports. If you do become the victim of theft, stay calm. Ask the authorities what you can do to protect yourself from future crimes. Smart decisions are your best defence.More
