Mason will fit in the new project alongside his role as Ramsay Street's Chris Pappas, as Neighbours will be on a short production break when the film shoot takes place.

Speaking to Digital Spy, the actor explained: "I'm really looking forward to getting stuck into it because it's going to be something completely different.

"We're currently in pre-production, so we're just going through everything now. They have a relatively short shoot, which coincides with our Neighbours production break coming up in April. They're going to use the good majority of that break to fit in most of my scenes.

"They've been really great with making it work. I'm obviously trying to give as much as I can to them and in return they're willing to work around my schedule at Neighbours, which is a little bit more inflexible than most productions and is my priority as well.

"I don't want to get too overwhelmed with the workload, but I have faith that I'll manage to fit everything in."

36 Questions sees a new couple meet an eccentric Italian restaurant owner, who gives them a scientific formula for falling in love.

Former Holby City actress Natasha Leigh is playing Mason's on-screen love interest in the film. She previously had an eight-episode stint as Australian doctor Lilah Birdwood on the hospital drama.

36 Questions is scheduled for release later this year.

Check back on Digital Spy later this week for a full interview with James Mason on Chris's future storylines in Neighbours.
