Gifford took to her Twitter account to share the exciting news. “I am beyond thrilled to announce the project I’m about to film with Craig Ferguson!” she wrote.

Love Me To Death was written by Gifford. It has a storyline near and dear to her heart.

“[The movie] follows Annabelle (Gifford), a lonely widow who plans a trip around the world, with her husband’s ashes in tow, to visit the places they loved in the movies. When she arrives at the Inn in Loch Lomond, run by a curmudgeonly Scotsman (Ferguson), the first stop on the journey changes her life forever, as a family secret is revealed, one wedding is derailed, another is planned, and two unlikely people get a second chance at love,” Deadline reported.
