Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #191. Stephen Daldry’s Trash


Director: Stephen Daldry
Writer: Richard Curtis
Producer(s): PeaPie Films’ Kris Thykier & Working Title Films’ Tim Bevan & Eric Fellner
U.S. Distributor: Universal Pictures
Cast: Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen, Wagner Moura

With an adapted screenplay by writer/director Richard Curtis, we’re super curious about what seems to be a change of pace for Stephen Daldry. True, it’s another adaptation of a novel, but this doesn’t seem to be something we’re going to be numbed to after a healthy round of Oscar campaigning. An eclectic cast, including Brazilian actor Wagner Moura from Jose Padhila’s Elite Squad films is also a reason to tune in.

Gist: Set in an unnamed Third World country, three kids (played by newcomers Rickson Tevez, Eduardo Luis and Gabriel Weinstein) who make a discovery in a garbage dump soon find themselves running from the cops and trying to right a terrible wrong. Sheen will play Father Juilliard, and Mara will play Olivia, an NGO worker.

Release Date: Set to open May 1, 2014 in the UK, expect a release date around the same time period stateside.
