Bill in 12 Days of Christmas
Sky will produce 12 Days of Christmas, a dozen eight-minute silent films which will be broadcast on Sky1.
Bill Nighy will star in Statuesque, which tells the story of a love triangle between two living statues and an admirer who observes his object of affection every day among the Christmas shoppers – but is unaware that he too is being watched.
The short film was written by Neil Gaiman, who worked on Coraline and Stardust.

Bill Nighy will contribute to “Modern Delight” a new charity book
Modern Delight takes its inspiration from J B Priestley’s Delight-a 1949 collection of essays on things that made him, a self-confessed “old monster”, stop and smile.
Apart from Bill, Tom Stoppard, Stephen Fry, Jo Brand, Harry Hill and Nigel Slater are also among contributors to the book.
Modern Delight will be available from the 10th of September, will cost £10 and will be exclusively available in Waterstone’s shops and through waterstones.com.
Proceeds from the book will go towards Dyslexia Action and the London Library, the world’s largest independent lending library.
