Killing Eve's Fiona Shaw, who costarred with Waller-Bridge on an episode of Fleabag, is also set to act in the film.

Imaginary Friends will revolve around a man who can communicate with other people's former imaginary friends, some of whom he discovers are angry or sad about being cast aside, as seen on IMDb.
