Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) si Claire Foy (The Crown) vor fi protagonistii noii drame biografice regizata de Will Sharpe (Flowers), bazata pe viata artistului britanic Louis Wain.

I am thrilled by the prospect of playing the courageous, playful spirit that is Louis Wain and to be producing such a special film. I have admired Will’s work for several years through Flowers and from the moment we first met, knew he was the perfect person to bring Louis’ inspirational and odyssean story to life. Together we plan to bring audiences a sincerely uplifting, playful, thought provoking tale of resilience, creativity and the enduring power of love,” a declarat Benedict Cumberbatch.

Louis Wain este scris de Sharpe si Simon Stephenson si ii mai are in distributie pe Andrea Riseborough si Toby Jones. Producatorii acestuia sunt Guy Heeley, Adam Ackland, Ed Clarke si Leah Clarke. Amazon Studios si StudioCanal se vor ocupa de film, alaturi de SunnyMarch, Shoebox si Film4. Studiocanal va lansa drama in Marea Britanie, Franta, Germania si Australia/ Noua Zeelanda, iar Amazon il va distribui in S.U.A.

Filmarile vor incepe in luna august, la Londra.
