Denis Kelly, who penned the Tony-winning book, has taken on the screenplay here. Matthew Warchus, who directed the stage production in the West End and Broadway, helms the film.
As previously reported, Emma Thompson is playing the role of Miss Trunchbull, alongside Lashana Lynch, who will play Miss Honey, as well as Alisha Weir in the title role. Stephen Graham plays Mr. Wormwood, Andrea Riseborough plays Mrs. Wormwood, and Sindhu Vee plays Mrs. Phelps.
The film introduces the performances of Charlie Hodson-Prior (Bruce Bogtrotter), Meesha Garbett (Hortensia), Rei Yamauchi Fulker (Lavender), Winter Jarrett Glasspool (Amanda Thripp), Andrei Shen (Eric), and Ashton Robertson (Nigel).
