Pink Floyd bassist Guy Pratt is set to star in a new road trip comedy called The Monk, The Mermaid & Molise which is in pre-production at Film Soho. His co-stars include Ronni Ancona, and Smack The Pony star Sally Phillips.

Guy said, “Cannot believe I may be getting to work with these amazing people”.

Guy will be playing a fictionalised version of himself, alongside Raffaello Degruttola, Sally Phillips and Ronni Ancona.

The film follows Guy, down on his luck, as he accepts an invitation to spend five days playing a series of bass clinics in a remote Italian region, Molise, run by a super fan, and must face up to decisions from his past.

Pratt will write the music, with contributions from his previous musical collaborators. It is set to be released in 2024.
