Tag: Helen Mirren (1-3 of 3)
Bryan Cranston and Helen Mirren are set to star in Jay Roach’s Trumbo, a film about Roman Holiday writer Dalton Trumbo, their reps confirmed to EW.
Cranston will play the titular character, who made a career as a screenwriter before he was blacklisted from Hollywood in 1947 after refusing to testify before the House Committee on Un-American Activities. After using a pseudonym, Trumbo was eventually able to claim his works, including 1960s Spartacus and Exodus, using his real name.
It’s one of the most famous cases in Hollywood history: Music producer Phil Spector was accused of the second-degree murder of Lana Clarkson in 2003. After a 2007 hung jury, he was found guilty in 2009 and is currently in prison. Now, the true story is coming to HBO with an all-star cast. An incredibly-similar-looking Al Pacino tackles the title role of Spector, and Helen Mirren plays his attorney, Linda Kenney Baden.
Written and directed by David Mamet, the HBO Films production focuses on his first trial and the relationship between Spector and Baden (who was one of many attorneys he went through in the case). The movie also stars Jeffrey Tambor and Rebecca Pidgeon.
