Greed also has celebrities such as Pixie Lott, James Blunt, David Mitchell and Made In Chelsea’s Ollie Locke.
The release of the movie next week on February 21 comes at a tragic time after Caroline’s death on Saturday.
Originally it made its world premiere in September 2019 at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Tragically, the former Love Island host, 40, committed suicide after a worried friend who was staying with her, just hours after she was told that she would be tried for alleged abuse of her friend Lewis Burton, something she denied.
Greed, directed by the English filmmaker Michael Winterbottom, follows the story of a narcissistic shop magnate (Steve), who is married to the character of Isla – the only person in his life who understands his selfishness.
Caroline took her own life after a worried friend who was staying with her went to the shops and left the former Love Island presenter alone in her London apartment.
It only came a few hours after she was told that she would be tried for alleged abuse of her friend Lewis Burton, something she denied.
Her management struck the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) for pursuing the “show process” after Lewis said he did not want to file a complaint.

CAROLINE FLACK: A CALL FOR HELP?
Caroline Flack often spoke about her struggles, both in interviews and on social media.
Caroline said, after her strict success: “Fame doesn’t make you happy”
The winner of Strictly Come Dancing 2014 said she felt depressed after her victory at the BBC show.
After winning the series together with professional partner Pasha Kovalev, she admitted that she felt she was “held together by a string that could break at any time.”
In an unearthed interview by the Daily star After her death, Caroline claimed that: “It all started the day after I won Strictly. I woke up and felt that someone had covered my body with cling film. I couldn’t get up and couldn’t pick myself up next year. “
She went on: ‘People see the lifestyle of celebrities and assume that everything is perfect, but we are just like everyone else. Everyone fights against something emotional behind closed doors – that is life.
Ignored? “When I actually contacted someone, they said I was tapping,” Caroline admitted in October 2019
“Fame doesn’t make you happy.”
“BEING A BURDEN IS MY BIGGEST FEAR”
In an Instagram post she uploaded on October 14, 2019 – on the occasion of World Mental Health Day – Caroline kept a photo of herself: “On some days it is difficult to write your feelings that you are not in the right place.
“I’ve been in a very weird place for the last few weeks … I find it hard to talk about it … I think it’s fear and pressure of life … and when I actually approached someone, they said I was tapping.
“I feel that this is why some people keep their emotions to themselves. I certainly hate to talk about my feelings. And being a burden is my biggest fear …
“I’m lucky that I can pick myself up if it feels like it. But what happens if someone can’t do that. Be kind to people. You never know what’s going on. Ever.’ [sic]
Signs of suicide? She loved tweets about calling the Samaritans during Christmas
Caroline was told to stay out of social media after her attack in December 2019.
However, she especially liked a series of tweets in the following days, before Christmas, to encourage those who felt lonely during the holidays to seek help.
The tweets – posted by actress Sheridan Smith, journalist Stacey Dooley and comedian Luke Kempner – contain the telephone number for the suicide hotline of The Samaritans.
She also posted on Instagram around the same time: “This kind of research and speculation is a lot to undertake for a person … I am a human at the end of the day and I am not silenced when I have a story have to tell and a life to continue with …
‘I take some free time to feel better and to learn some lessons from situations that concern myself. I have nothing but love to give and the best wishes for everyone. “
Reportedly Caroline had decided to write a book during her recent free time.
“Caroline has found the process incredibly cathartic,” one of her friends told Mail. ‘She wants it to be more than just a story about her. She wants to talk about the problems she has encountered and how she has overcome them.
“She hopes to be able to help others who may have similar problems. Partly self-help, partly memoir is the style that Caroline is looking for. “
