Untitled-Mike-Leigh-Projec

There has been a lot of interest in the films of Mike Leigh ever since he released Happy Go Lucky. This is going to be another film that will use the same improvisation style Mike Leigh is known for.

He is known for his works on his film like Naked and Secret and Lies and several others. His stories are really difficult to pin point. It comes out of a lot of rehearsals and ideas being bashed around. Mike Leigh begins to write once he gets a thread.

The film has the usual cast that includes some of Leigh’s favorites Jim Broadbent and Imelda Staunton who worked on his masterpiece Vera Drake. In the picture we have featured from the film is Lesley Manville and on the left is Ruth Sheen.

There was a screening of Mike Leigh’s film Topsy Turvy where Mike discussed his new movie in a lengthy 1 hour session. He also revealed the name of the film Another Year.

“After some quite gentle probing, informed us that the title of his brand new and currently untitled film will be called ‘Another Year’. He refused to make any other comments on the film, but informed us all there that this was the first time that he had publicly announced this.”

You can expect the new film to be released at around fall 2010.
