The film also stars Mamma Mia’s Dominic Cooper and Tamsin Grieg.
The film starts shooting on 21 September on locations in the UK and at Pinewood Studios.
“I’ve loved Posy Simmonds’ work for a long time,” Frears said in a statement. “I’ve got a tremendous cast and crew.
“Tamara Drewe is a terrific story. Fingers crossed, we can do it justice.”
