Netflix can be credited for giving break-out roles to several never seen before actors like Millie Bobby Brown, and Katherine Longford, to name a few. But they have also given fame to slightly older actors like Nicola Coughlan from Bridgerton, and Derry Girls. And Aimee Lou Wood from Sex Education.

Now, Nicola and Aimee will be bringing their comedic wits to the larger screen in a dark-comedy film, Seize Them! and we are all for it.

The new female-led comedy film has started principal photography in UK locations from Monday. The historical comic film revolves around a revolt headed by Humble Joan, who topples Queen Dagan. The Queen becomes a wanted fugitive in her own country, with a large reward on her head.

Queen Dagan must confront hardship and danger as she begins on a journey to reclaim her throne with the assistance of Shulmay, a former servant with many secrets, and Bobik, a shit-shoveller, who wants more out of life.

We will be seeing Nicola Coughlan playing Humble Joan the revolt. Aimee Lou Wood will be playing the role of the queen, with Lolly Adefope as the servant Shumlay and extremely hilarious Nick Frost as Bobik.
