When we see some new movie projects being announced, brought up and talked about, one of the first things we look for is which Hollywood movie stars we are going to see starring in the film, followed by what exactly the movie is going to be about. We have seen some very impressive and exciting collaborations on the big screen over the years, but we might just have found our favourite.
We recently heard about the new movie The Professor and the Madman and we have to admit that the title alone caught our interest, so we quickly checked out who was in the project. Well, we were very excited to learn that Hollywood legends Mel Gibson and Sean Penn have both been attached to the project, while the film itself has a very intriguing story line.
If you have yet to hear anything about the new movie The Professor and the Madman, it has been officially described as, "A professor begins work compiling words for the first edition of the Oxford English Dictionary in the mid 19th century and receives over 10,000 entries from a doctor at an insane asylum."
It definitely sounds like a very interesting idea for a film and we cannot wait to see how it plays out on the big screen and who else we are going to see joining Sean Penn and Mel Gibson in the cast for the film. The Professor and the Madman is going to be directed by Farhad Safinia, who also had a hand in penning the screenplay for the movie, along with John Boorman and Todd Komarnicki.
