Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #19. Mike Leigh’s Mr. Turner

Mr. Turner

Director: Mike Leigh
Writer: Mike Leigh
Producer: Georgina Lowe
U.S. Distributor: Sony Pictures Classics
Cast: Timothy Spall, Lesley Manville, Julian Seager

As he has proven on several occasions before, Timothy Spall is a great fit for period pieces and he just so happens to be a perfect fit for any role Mike Leigh deems fit. Leigh discovered the person in water colors and working alongside trusted visual adviser in cinematographer Dick Pope, we can expect this to look just as good as Topsy-Turvy.

Gist: This is a look at the life of British artist J.M.W Turner (Timothy Spall).

Release Date: Still await confirmation on the playdate – most likely hits will be fall release from Sony Pictures Classics. A festival playdate is either Cannes or Venice.
