The UK Independent is reporting Kim Cattrall and Matthew Macfayden will team up with Gillian Anderson to star in the UK's Channel 4 four-part mini-series Any Human Heart. The series is an adaptation of William Boyd's best-selling novel and will premiere later this year.  

The Independent states that "Jim Broadbent, Matthew Macfadyen and Sam Claflin will all take the role of writer Logan Mountstuart, playing him at different stages of his life." The Independent also states that Kim Cattrall, best known for her role as Samantha in Sex and the City, will play Logan's lover Gloria. No other production details have been released.

Cattrall and Macfayden are currently co-stars in the West End play Private Lives at the Vaudeville Theatre. In Private Lives, glamorous, rich and reckless, Elyot and Amanda have been divorced from each other for five years. Now both are honeymooning with their new spouses in the South of France. When by chance they meet again across adjoining hotel balconies, their insatiable feelings for each other are immediately rekindled. Without a care for scandal, new partners or memories of what drove them apart in the first place, they hurl themselves headlong into love and lust. Ticket prices are £25 - £49.50 and can be purchased by calling the box office at 0844 412 4663. Performances are Wednesday February 24 - Saturday May 1 at 7.30pm.
