Joely Richardson is to star in The Messenger

Joely Richardson has joined the cast of thriller The Messenger.

The Tudors and Nip/Tuck star will star alongside Robert Sheehan, Jack Fox and Lily Cole in the film, as a psychiatrist.

Producer Terry Stone said: "We are absolutely thrilled to have an actress of Joely's talent and integrity attached to our project. She makes a fantastic addition to an already incredible cast."

The 49-year-old actress, best known for her roles in Thanks For Sharing, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and The Patriot, will next be seen in post-apocalyptic horror Maggie alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin, and romantic drama The Fallen with Jeremy Irvine.

The Messenger, which has begun shooting, follows a young man who can communicate with the dead. He unwillingly becomes embroiled in the relationship between a murdered journalist and his TV presenter wife.

David O'Hara and Tamzin Merchant also star in the film.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Libra:

Don't let a manipulator take advantage of you. Someone with a sob story will ask for money or favours. Be prepared to turn them away. Although you want to be gracious, it simply isn't wise to give assistance to people with bad motives. Other people have warned you about this trickster. Take their advice. There's often a good reason why a person has a bad reputation. If anyone dares accuse you of being selfish, stay strong. You have a right to use your hard earned money for your own benefit.More
