Deadline has a first look at Oscar-winning duo Jim Broadbent and Helen Mirren in Roger Michell’s art heist comedy The Duke. As we revealed back in October, the heavyweight Brit acting duo are leading the cast of the film based on the true story of 60-year-old taxi driver Kempton Bunton who, in 1961, stole a Goya painting from the National Gallery in London. Bunton sent a ransom note saying he would only return the picture on condition that the UK government agreed to provide free TV for the elderly. However, it turned out he was spinning a web of lies, with the full story not emerging for another 50 years. The incident was the first, and still only, theft in the National Gallery’s history. Fionn Whitehead and Matthew Goode are also in the cast. The script was written by Richard Bean (One Man, Two Guvnors) and Clive Coleman and the film is produced by Nicky Bentham (Moon) of Neon Films. Backing came from Ingenious Media and Screen Yorkshire. Pathé will distribute the film in the UK, France and Switzerland and is handling sales for the rest of the world.

Mark Strong and Helen Mirren will star in a production of Oedipus, it has been confirmed by producer Sonia Friedman Productions. Robert Icke’s adaptation of Sophocles’ tragedy, which follows a family beset by personal tragedy, has yet to reveal dates, venues, ticket info or further creative team members, but it is rumoured that the show will be presented in the West End. Icke previously adapted the tragedy into Dutch, with a Toneelgroep production running at the Edinburgh International Festival last summer. Mirren previously appeared in The Audience in the West End, while Strong worked with Icke on The Red Barn at the National. Icke’s adaptation of The Doctor, which had its world premiere at the Almeida earlier this year, will embark on a small tour before running in the West End starring Juliet Stevenson, with Sonia Friedman Productions acting as a co-producer on that show. More information about Oedipus is to be announced soon.
