Ramin Karimloo and Samantha Barks have been cast in the leading roles for a new musical feature film ‘Tomorrow Morning’. The film is to be directed by Nick Winston (Fame The Musical) with the musical score composed by Laurence Mark Wythe.
The cast includes Harriet Thorpe (Absolutely Fabulous), comedian Omid Djalili, and singer and radio personality Fleur East with further casting to be announced.
The story follows the relationships of what at first seems like two different couples separated by a span of time; one couple is getting married, while the other is getting divorced. They are in fact one and the same couple, at two points in their relationship – a decade apart.
The film is set to be filmed on location in May and June 2021.

She made her television debut aged 18 on the BBC talent show-themed television series I’d Do Anything in 2008 finishing third.
