First Sneak Peek at Mike Leigh's New Project

The first photo released from Mike Leigh's new project features star Timothy Spall standing determined on a wooden ship as painter J.M.W. Turner. The project, about the British Romantic landscape artist who was known as "the painter of light," has yet to receive a title and is still in post-production. Leigh has returned with many of his previous collaborators including actors Marion Bailey, Dorothy Atkinson and Paul Jesson, producer Georgina Lowe, cinematographer Dick Pope, costume designer Jacqueline Durran and make-up and hair designer Christine Blundell. Sony Pictures Classics is handling the release.

    Top hats, romantic lighting, landscape painters...Doesn't seem like a typical Mike Leigh movie.

    Topsy-Turvy has a somewhat similar premise.
