TIMOTHY SPALL TO TRAVEL ACROSS BRITAIN IN HEARTWARMING DRAMA MOVIE THE LAST BUS AFTER SHOOTING THE OBSCURE LIFE OF THE GRAND DUKE OF CORSICA AT MALTA

  TIMOTHY SPALL TO LEAD
THE LAST BUS DRAMA MOVIE
Timothy Spall has a busy schedule this Autumn
This sounds like a beautiful story: one of Britain's biggest living thespians Timothy Spall is set to lead THE LAST BUS movie directed by Gillies MacKinnon. The new drama will tell the story of widower Tom (Timothy Spall) who, on the recent passing of his wife Mary (Phyllis Logan), uses his free bus pass to travel the length of Britain from John O’Groats in Scotland to Land’s End in Cornwall, their shared birthplace, using only local buses. His encounters with local people make him a media phenomenon, though Tom is totally unaware of his growing fame.

Speaking of Timothy Spall, he is currently over at Malta shooting new comedy movie THE OBSCURE LIFE OF THE GRAND DUKE OF CORSICA in which he plays a cantankerous and brilliant architect, Alfred, who embarks on a highly unusual commission in Malta for a man who calls himself 'The Grand Duke Of Corsica'  (Peter Stormare). An epidemic hits the Island and all must flee, but Alfred remains to finish the job.

  1. It sounds lovely! How often do people talk on buses anymore? We immediately sit down and avoid eye contact with fellow passengers. We'll tinker on our phones or read a book just so we don't have to communicate with another human being. Maybe this movie will remind us how beautiful it can be to just sit and talk to another person, even just for a short bus ride.

    1. I've seen somewhere that his character is possibly ill too and that it might be his last bus ride ever.

    2. How sad that would be. But I suppose it's sad anyway losing your spouse. I just hope there are a few happy bits in here and it's not a depressing movie.

    3. Timothy himself recently survived cancer, that is why he went so thin suddenly.

    4. Survived means he's in remission then. He can gain that weight back, thankfully!
