Mad Men siren Christina Hendricks joins Mike Figgis’ Seconds Of Pleasure

07 November 2011

Mad Men and Drive siren Christina Hendricks has joined the cast of Mike Figgis' relationship drama Seconds Of Pleasure from screenwriter Neil LaBute based on a book of short stories published under the same title.

The Leaving Las Vegas experimental director known for pushing the boundaries of cinema has assembled a stellar cast in the shape of Kristen Scott Thomas, Matt Dillon, Brendan Fraser and Julia Stiles for the film which follows the interweaving lives of three couples travelling on the same aeroplane, so expect at least one more male cast member to be unveiled in due course.

Margaret Enefer head of drama at Scottish broadcaster turned production company STV said "We’re delighted to be working with Myriad on this fantastic film, Neil has written an incredibly candid, blazingly witty script. We know Mike Figgis will make it shine in the most sensitive and imaginative way possible. It’s a thrill to have them working together with this amazing cast.”

While Myriad Pictures CEO echoed her sentiments adding “We immediately responded to Neil's script, which is razor-sharp, so insightful and honest, about the real challenges and temptations people face every day,” he said. “Mike Figgis is the perfect director to bring this script to life, especially with this extraordinary cast."
