'Doctor Who' duo to reunite

'Doctor Who' stars David Tennant and Billie Piper are set to reunite.

'Doctor Who' stars David Tennant and Billie Piper are set to reunite.

The pair - who played the Time Lord and his assistant Rose Tyler in the BBC shoe - are currently in talks to star in thriller film 'Love On The Murder Mile', which will be directed by Billie's husband Laurence Fox.

According to Daily Mail columnist Baz Bamigboye, 'The Office' actor Mackenzie Crook and Welsh-born star Matthew Rhys are also working on the movie.

Matthew - who stars in US drama series 'Brothers and Sisters' - will shoot his scenes for the movie while on his summer break from the show.

Robin Fox, Laurence's brother and producer on the film, has admitted negotiations are still on-going with the cast and not every actor was currently contracted.

David has been linked to a number of big movies recently, including the Madonna-directed royal biopic of Britain's King Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson 'W.E.', and even a big screen version of 'Doctor Who'.

Billie Piper said last month: "I've heard they're doing a film and I know they want David to do it.

"I think David's slightly anxious that there'll be some big American producers and board and they'll try to hijack the whole thing and cast someone like Johnny Depp."
