Brian Cox, Natascha McElhone, Anne Reid and Philip Jackson have joined the cast of David Scheinmann’s “Theatre Of Dreams” for Bill and Ben Productions and Trinity Films says The Hollywood Reporter.
The story is a coming-of-age drama about how Manchester United’s legendary manager Matt Busby helps an 11-year-old rascal (Jack Smith) fulfil his footballing dreams. Though Busby is a real person, the story itself is not based on a true one.
The title refers to the ground where the English soccer team plays. Shooting takes place in Manchester this month and next for release next year.
