Dan Stevens and Rebecca Hall will team up for new movie 'Permissions'.

The Brian Crano-directed romantic comedy sees the 'Downton Abbey' star and 'Vicky Cristina Barcelona' actress play a couple in their thirties living in New York City who decide to embark on an open relationship - which entails finding a number of other sexual partners - thinking it will repair their troubled relationship.

Filming is set to begin very soon in the Big Apple and the movie - which is being produced by Ball and Chain and Pictures - also stars Bridget Everett, Gina Gershon, Francois Arnaud, Morgan Spector, David Joseph Craig, Sarah Steele and Jason Sudeikis.

Meanwhile, Dan is currently working on the live-adaptation of 'Beauty And The Beast' which comes out next year and will be seen shortly in Spanish-Canadian science fiction action-thriller 'Colossal.'

Rebecca has joined the cast of 'State Like Sleep' alongside Michael Shannon and Ben Foster and will be seen as the lead in biopic 'Christine', which tells the true story of the 1970s suicidal reporter Christine Chubbuck.

But before then, the actress hits screens as Mary in Steven Spielberg's 'The BFG', which is out on July 22.
