When she fails to meet an item on his list of requirements for a bride, Julia Thistlewaite (Zawe Ashton) is jilted by London’s most eligible bachelor, Mr. Malcolm (Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù). Feeling humiliated and determined to exact revenge, she convinces her friend Selina Dalton (Freida Pinto) to play the role of his ideal match. Soon, Mr. Malcolm wonders whether he’s found the perfect woman…or the perfect hoax. Also starring Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Ashley Park, with Theo James.

Suzanne Allain self-published her novel Mr. Malcom’s List in 2009 and subsequently adapted it into a script. The script was discovered by filmmaker Emma Holly Jones when The Black List did a podcast script reading of the highly-rated script submitted through the website in 2015. Jones pursued the rights and then brought on producer Laura Rister and subsequently Laura Lewis to produce the feature film adaptation.

The team decided to make a short film as a teaser to a potential feature film, and partnered with Vice Studios’ Refinery29 and their Shatterbox short film series for female filmmakers to make the short. It was shot in October 2018 in London and was released online on February 14, 2019 and, to date, has had over 2 million views. The short film starred Sope Dirisu, Gemma Chan, Freida Pinto, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Divian Ladwa, and Sianad Gregory.

Based on the short film’s success, Allain’s novel was officially published in 2020 by Berkley Press, and the feature film adaptation received financial support. The team partnered with producer Katie Holly and her company Blinder Films to shoot in Ireland and started production in March 2021. Pinto, Dìrísù, Jackson-Cohen, Ladwa and Gregory return from the short. New additions to the cast included Zawe Ashton, Theo James and Ashley Park.[2]

Mr. Malcolm’s List is an upcoming period drama directed by Emma Holly Jones and written by Suzanne Allain, based on her novel of the same name. It stars Freida Pinto, Sope Dirisu, Zawe Ashton, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Ashley Park, and Theo James.

The film is scheduled to be released in the United States on July 1, 2022.
