Euro Beat: First Image From Mike Leigh's J.M.W. Turner Project!

Editor-at-Large; Los Angeles (@
Also in today's edition of Euro Beat: Catherine Deneuve turns 70 and remains awesome, Alain Delon goes a little nuts at 77 (or has he always been?), promising films win at the London Film Festival, plus, Europe takes back its box office! 

We'll begin with the first still from a project Euro Beat has tracked since it was first announced, and which appears to be actually happening! Yes, we now have photographic proof that Mike Leigh's biopic of the amazing painter J.M.W. Turner is indeed in production, and that Leigh's appreciation of the top hat has not diminished since Topsy Turvy.

Have a look:

Timothy Spall will be be playing Turner, alongside Marion Bailey, Dorothy Atkinson and Paul Jensen. The working title for the film is Untitled 13, which I actually find actually more intriguing than some uninspired choice like Turner.
