Empire Online caught up with Sting's missus Trudie Styler at the London Film Festival yesterday where she was promoting her latest role as Anna Friel's mum in Me Without You. It's a busy old time for Styler at the moment, as her production company Xingu Films has a number of projects on the go at the moment - including one involving Friel's current squeeze David Thewlis. 'He's written his first screenplay called Cheeky in which he acts and directs and I'll produce that.' Styler told us. 'We're in development with that and hope to be in pre-production at the beginning of the year and shooting in Spring.' 'It's a film where a man who's just recently lost his wife to a horrific fire and starts to rebuilt his life with and through his son Sam by becoming a contestant on a quiz show called Cheeky - hence the title.'
