Baby Cow, which was set up in 1999 by Coogan and Henry Normal, has worked across film and TV. Its credits include the four-times Oscar-nominated movie “Philomena,” comedy film “Alan Partridge,” and TV series “Gavin and Stacey,” “The Mighty Boosh” and “The Trip.” The company announced in April that Normal was stepping down as CEO, and that the BBC’s global distribution division, BBC Worldwide, was increasing its stake in the company from 25% to 73%. Coogan said at the time: “Whether it’s our new comedy, drama or film projects we’ll be building on the success of our first 16 years with the same commitment to distinctive, original work.”

As the beginnings of Oscar season take shape, certain performances are already receiving buzz. Take Academy Award winner Rachel Weisz in “Denial,” a movie that recounts historian Deborah E. Lipstadt’s efforts to prove the Holocaust actually occurred. As the trailer below indicates, thorny subject matter usually means a meaty acting role. With direction from Mick Jackson (“Temple Grandin”) and a screenplay by David Hare (“The Reader”), “Denial” draws from Lipstadt’s book, “History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier.” Co-starring Timothy Spall as David Irving, the denier in question who sues Lipstadt for libel, and Academy Award nominee Tom Wilkinson as her lawyer, the film promises a faithful look at a startling moment in history. Could it mean Oscar gold for Weisz or any of her co-stars? Watch the trailer for “Denial” and see for yourself! Inspired by this post? Check out our film audition listings! »
He is one of Britain’s favourite actors. This year, he’s been on stage in The Caretaker and is set to star in films as Ian Paisley and Holocaust denier David Irving. So why is Timothy Spall so full of doubt?
A couple of weeks ago, Timothy Spall’s agent asked his client – quite casually, as you do – how he was. Spall told him: “I’m feeling a bit that I don’t really feel I can do it at the minute.” It being acting. Acting being what he has slaved at for 40 years, hitting the summit some time back.
The agent set him straight: “You’re in the best part of your career ever!” But Spall isn’t the sort to shed vexation easily. Never was. And as he nears 60, that isn’t changing. For all those BBC barge larks (he has shot three series touring Britain with his wife, »

The first trailer has arrived online for director Mick Jackson’s upcoming drama Denial which stars Rachel Weisz, Tom Wilkinson and Timothy Spall; check it out below, along with the poster and synopsis…
Based on the acclaimed book “History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier,” Denial recounts Deborah E. Lipstadt’s (Academy Award® winner Rachel Weisz) legal battle for historical truth against David Irving (Cannes Award winner Timothy Spall), who accused her of libel when she declared him a Holocaust denier. In the English legal system, the burden of proof is on the accused, therefore it was up to Lipstadt and her legal team to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred.
Denial is set for release on September 30th 2016 in the States and on February 3rd 2017 in the UK.

Manuel here with yet another sign of the Rachel Weisz renaissance we all so spiritedly discussed a few weeks back. When the trailer for The Light Between Oceans surfaced I was probably not alone in earmarking her supporting role in that Vikander/Fassbender weepie as a chance for the actress to nab her second Oscar nomination (which most of us had vainly hoped she’d net with her beautiful work in The Deep Blue Sea). Well, there may be a clearer path for the actress with Denial which is, after all, squarely focused on that most Oscar-ey of topics: the Holocaust.
Rather than focus on the event itself, the film centers instead on a very public libel suit in the UK in the 1990s between a writer, David Irving (Timothy Spall), and a historian, Deborah E. Lipstadt (Weisz) after she accuses him of denying the Holocaust. Let’s break down »

With a script by playwright David Hare based on Deborah E. Lipstadt's nonfiction book about Holocaust deniers, Mick Jackson’s upcoming drama called, appropriately enough, Denial, promised fireworks from the get-go. This new trailer doesn’t back away, opening with a scene in which denier David Irving (Timothy Spall), lobs the first verbal grenade: “I say to you, quite tastelessly, that more women died on the backseat of Senator Edward Kennedy’s car at Chappaquiddick than… »
You would think that half a century after the Holocaust, the world would at least acknowledge that it happened. The trailer for Denial is a shocking reminder that not everyone believes that it was real. Set in 1994, the film chronicles the story of an intellectual battle between historian Deborah Lipstadt (Rachel Weisz) and David Irving (Timothy Spall), a noted Holocaust denier. It's borderline disturbing to see the events played out, and yes, like the Holocaust, this really happened. The movie will be out on Sept. 30, so until then, check out one of these other 2016 movies based on true events. »

Murtada here. Iconoclastic British filmmaker Sally Potter (Orlando, The Man Who Cried, Ginger & Rosa) started shooting her new movie The Party, this week. The film, which unfolds in real time, revolves around a drinks party held by a London couple to celebrate the wife’s promotion to minister in the Shadow Cabinet. It is described by its producers like so:
a comedy wrapped around a tragedy. It starts as a celebration and ends with blood on the floor.”
The cast includes Emily Mortimer, Cillian Murphy, Timothy Spall, Bruno Ganz, Cherry Jones and two Tfe favorites Kristin Scott Thomas and Patricia Clarkson. One of whom might be playing the lead role of the celebrated minister. Since the movie is set in London we are guessing Scott Thomas. Not that we don't think Clarkson can rock an English accent »

The first trailer has arrived for the Rachel Weisz-led Holocaust-centric drama "Denial" which is an adaptation of Deborah E. Lipstadt's true story novel "History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier".
Weisz plays the author who fought a legal battle against a man (Timothy Spall) who denied that the Holocaust ever happened. Mick Jackson ("Temple Grandin") helms from a script by David Hare ("The Reader"), with the movie to open September 30th.

"I'm not attacking freedom of speech. I've been defending my right to stand up against someone who wants to pervert the truth." What if you had to prove the Holocaust actually happened? That's the story behind this film, titled Denial, telling the true story of writer and historian Deborah E. Lipstadt's fight to clear her name when she's sued for libel by a Holocaust denier. Rachel Weisz stars as Lipstadt, along with Timothy Spall as the denier David Irving, and a cast including Andrew Scott, Tom Wilkinson, Mark Gatiss and Harriet Walter. This actually looks very strong, and quite compelling overall, thanks to what seem to be excellent performances and a script by the award-winning playwright David Hare. Check it out. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Mick Jackson's Denial, in high def from Apple: Acclaimed writer and historian Deborah E. Lipstadt must battle for historical truth to prove the Holocaust actually occurred when David Irving, a renowned denier, sues »

Anyone who’s seen Errol Morris’ documentary “Mr. Death: The Rise and Fall of Fred A. Leuchter, Jr.” knows that the bizarre phenomenon of Holocaust denial can make for a strange, compelling movie. Mick Jackson’s “Denial” looks to be considerably more straightforward, but the prestige-picture-in-waiting does have the benefit of a standout cast: Rachel Weisz, Tom Wilkinson and Timothy Spall headline the drama arriving this fall. The first trailer is available now.
An adaptation of Deborah E. Lipstadt’s book “History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier,” the film stars Weisz as the author herself, who was accused of libel by David Irving (Spall) for calling out his views on the Holocaust; what follows is a legal battle in the English court system, where the burden of proof is on Lipstadt rather than Irving.

It wouldn’t be the fall awards season if there wasn’t a Holocaust drama, but this year we’ll get one from a different angle. Rather being set during World War II, Denial takes places decades after as it recounts the true events captured in Deborah E. Lipstadt’s book History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier. Coming from director Mick Jackson (Temple Grandin) and writer David Hare (The Reader, The Hours), the first trailer has landed today.
The film tracks Rachel Weisz as Lipstadt in which she fights for the truth against David Irving (Timothy Spall), with the help of Tom Wilkinson‘s character. While it checks off all the markings of a tried and true awards season drama, hopefully it proves to excel beyond those trappings. Ahead of a likely premiere at Toronto International Film Festival, check out the trailer and poster below for the Bleecker Street release.
Based on the acclaimed book “History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier,” Denial recounts Deborah E. Lipstadt’s (Academy Award® winner Rachel Weisz) legal battle for historical truth against David Irving (Cannes Award winner Timothy Spall), who accused her of libel when she In the English legal system, the burden of proof is on the accused, therefore it was up to Lipstadt and her legal team to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred. Also starring two-time Academy Award® nominee Tom Wilkinson, the film is directed by Emmy Award® winner Mick Jackson (Temple Grandin) and adapted for the screen by BAFTA and Academy Award® nominated writer David Hare (The Reader). Producers are Gary Foster and Russ Krasnoff.
Denial opens on September 30, 2016.
