Two Running a "Detective Agency"


Jill Scott


Jill Scott and Anika Noni Rose have both been picked up to topline Anthony Minghella-directed "The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency."

Taking chance to spark a good onscreen collaboration together, Jill Scott and Anika Noni Rose have both given their agreement to highlight comedy mystery "The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency" that The Weinstein Company is setting up alongside Mirage Productions.

Based on Alexander McCall Smith's novel of the same name, the project will bill Scott to play Precious Ramotswe, the owner of a Botswana-based detective agency run by women, and Rose as her secretary/assistant detective. Also included in the cast is TV actor Lucian Msamati who will portray the fiancee of Ramotswe.

On duty to direct is English filmmaker Anthony Minghella who is set to helm from the script he wrote alongside Richard Curtis. There is a probability that a TV series based on the book will also be made to follow the movie though no deals are currently in place for this time being.
