O’Toole, Northam Team For Dean

Peter O’Toole and Jeremy Northam will star alongside Sam Neill and Bryan Brown in “Dean Spanley,” the sophomore feature from Sundance audience prize winner Toa Fraser (“No.2”) says The Hollywood Reporter.

Set in Edwardian England, where upper lips are always stiff and men from the Colonies are not entirely to be trusted, “Spanley” reveals just how deep an Englishman’s love for his dog can go.

The movie is scheduled to begin shooting in November from a script by Alan Sharp (“Rob Roy”).
