THE FAREWELL Review 'One of the most endearing and beautiful films of the year'

Emilia Clarke & Henry Golding To Star In Paul Feig's 'Last Christmas'

THR is reporting Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) and Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians) are ready for a little holiday romance.

The pair are set to star in Universal's Last Christmas. Paul Feig, whose latest film A Simple Favor opened in theaters on Sept. 14, will direct the project, which reunites him with Golding, who stars in A Simple Favor.

The plot for the movie, with a screenplay by Emma Thompson and Bryony Kimmings, has been kept mostly under wraps, other than it being a holiday romance set in London.

Feig, who previously helmed Bridesmaids, The Heat and Ghostbusters and created the comedy series Freaks and Geeks, will also produce Last Christmas for his Feigco Entertainment, alongside Jessie Henderson. David Livingstone, producer of the upcoming Judy Garland biopic Judy starring Renee Zellweger, and Thompson will also produce. Universal executive vp production Erik Baiers will oversee the project for the studio.

Clarke plays Daenerys Targaryen on the HBO hit series Game of Thrones, which won the Emmy for best drama on Monday, and will wrap up with its eighth season in 2019. She most recently was seen on the big screen in Solo: A Star Wars Story, and has previously shown off her skills in a romance film with 2016's Me Before You.

Golding's first-ever feature film role was the lead in Crazy Rich Asians, which has skyrocketed him to leading-man status after the Warner Bros.' hit romantic comedy was No. 1 for three weeks in a row to become the top-grossing comedy at the domestic box office in the last two two years. The actor also stars opposite Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick in Feig's A Simple Favor (which earned $16 million in its domestic debut), and he also has shot the indie Monsoon.
