COLIN FIRTH TO LEAD OPERATION MINCEMEAT WW2 MOVIE! 1ST MRS LOWRY & SON PHOTO WITH VANESSA REDGRAVE, TIMOTHY SPALL! LIAM NEESON TO STAR WITH HIS SON IN MADE IN ITALY

   COLIN FIRTH TO LEAD
OPERATION MINCEMEAT WW2 FILM
One of the new projects that is trying to find buyers over at Cannes this month is John Madden's (Shakespeare in Love) World War II movie
Colin Firth will lead the new WW2 drama
OPERATION MINCEMEAT which has already found its lead star in Colin Firth!
Based on the book by Ben Macintyre, the film is set in 1943 when the Allies are determined to launch an all-out assault on ‘Fortress Europe’! The story of the movie will follow two brilliant intelligence officers, Ewen Montagu (Colin Firth) and Charles Cholmondeley, who dream up an inspired and improbable disinformation strategy to help the cause. It is a richly human story of the soldiers we seldom see, who fight a different kind of war in shadows and deception, haunted by the knowledge that certainty and guarantee of success are nowhere to be found.

Meanwhile, the son of late Natasha Richardson and Liam Neeson (and also a nephew of Joely Richardson and Lynn Redgrave and grandson of Vanessa Redgrave and famous director Tony Richardson) Micheal Richardson will star with his father in MADE IN ITALY together with Lindsay Duncan and Valeria Bilello!

Neither expects to find the once beautiful villa in such a state of disrepair.

  1. Great names of great british actors: Colin Firth, the Redgraves, Liam Neeson, etc..
    I remember the tragic ski accident with Natasha Richardson ; it has moved me very deeply.
    All the three movies (Mincemeat, Made in Italy and Mrs Lowry and Son) look interesting and worth watching.

    1. There are always some stories around their family. Did you know that both Natasha and Joely did not talk with their mother Vanessa for a very long time? She apparently wasn't a good moma.

  2. No, I didn't. I only know she was a great actress. Like many other great talents, she probably was a difficult person.

  3. Well, the way I see it Liam Neeson rocks even if his movies suck. Most of them. No? What say you, Dezzzmeister?

    1. Can't say I watch his movies, he mostly stars in action flicks and I don't do that.

  4. I like Colin Firth. To me, he's not the most handsome man, but there's just something sexy about his soft spoken nature.

    All 3 are definitely watch worthy today.
