Having won the Palme d'Or in Cannes for his stunning characterisation as eccentric painter in Mr Turner, TIMOTHY SPALL continues his leading man status in the black comedy EYE DIGRESS, which is currently in pre-production in London. Principle photography commences August 2015.
EYE DIGRESS is something that Timothy has been developing with Director Stephen Cookson (My Angel) for some time. Spall is not only playing the leading role he’s playing all the roles in this nightmarish tale of a man stuck in prison riddled with delusions and hallucinations.
Spall adapted the script with Cookson from an original screenplay by first time writer Falcon Fields. Gary Collins of Red Rock Entertainment is co-financing with Peter Keegan of Northwood Films Ltd. The producers are currently talking to sales agents about handling worldwide sales.
This is the first time since Alec Guinness played multiple roles in the classic Ealing Comedy Kind Hearts and Coronets for an actor to take on such an acting challenge. But Spall being one of the UK’s most adaptable and skilful actors is game for taking on one of the most original and challenging projects he has ever been involved with to date.
