HISTORY… HOLLYWOOD STYLE!
Directed by Peter Richardson (STELLA STREET, THE COMIC STRIP PRESENTS…) and written by Richardson with Pete Richens, CHURCHILL, THE HOLLYWOOD YEARS is a wildly irreverent retelling of one of the greatest periods in Britain’s history… as seen through the eyes of Hollywood.
Britain’s finest hour unveils the greatest love story never told, and the search begins to uncover the true identity of Britain’s war hero – with surprising and shocking results.
Christian Slater (BROKEN ARROW, TRUE ROMANCE) stars as the new and improved Winston Churchill with Neve Campbell (SCREAM and Robert Altman’s THE COMPANY) taking the role of the young Princess Elizabeth.
Slater and Campbell will be supported by a cast of the best of British comedians, veteran and new, including Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer, Leslie Phillips (‘Lara Croft: Tomb Raider’), Mackenzie Crook (‘Pirates of the Caribbean’), James Dreyfus (‘Hell’s Kitchen’), Steve Pemberton (‘The League of Gentlemen’) and Harry Enfield as King George. Adolf Hitler will be played by Sir Anthony Sher and Eva Braun by Miranda Richardson.
CHURCHILL, THE HOLLYWOOD YEARS is produced by Jonathan Cavendish (BRIDGET JONES’ DIARY, CROUPIER) of Little Bird, and Ben Swaffer, on behalf of Inside Track.
CHURCHILL, THE HOLLYWOOD YEARS is being distributed by Path Distribution and will open across the UK on December 3rd 2004
