Gareth Edwards’ sci-fi feature True Love adds Allison Janney to the cast

Deadline has revealed that the Oscar-winning actress, Allison janney, has signed on to join the cast of New Regency’s upcoming sci-fi feature, True love. Although little is known about the film to be written and directed by Gareth Edwards, we know the movie will be set in a time not so distant from our own. We can also assume that, since it emanates from the director of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, there’s bound to be a bit of humor at the right time mixed with a dramatic, action-packed plot.

Along with Janney to complete the star-studded set, the cast members have already been announced. John David Washington (Malcolm & Marie), Gemma chan (crazy rich asians, Eternals), Danny mcbride (The right gems), and Benedict wong (Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings). Former Vice President of Development at Lucasfilm Ltd., Kiri hart, will join Edwards as a producer with New Regency producing and funding the film.


Janney has had a long and illustrious career in film, television and the theater. The actress had her big chance in the NBC series, West wing, and even received four Primetime Emmy Awards for his portrayal of CJ Cregg in the fictional political series. Since then, Janney has won several other Emmy awards and nominations for her performances in Showtime’s Masters of sex and the CBS sitcom, Mum.
