Toronto: Steve Coogan Starring in ‘Boswell for the Defence’

7 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Steve Coogan will take on the part of James Boswell in “Boswell for the Defence.”

The film centers on the Scottish lawyer, diarist and Samuel Johnson biographer in his later days as he takes on one last case. Production begins next year.

This has the potential to be another showy role for Coogan, who recently starred in — and collected an Oscar nomination for writing the screenplay of — “Philomena.” His credits include also “Tropic Thunder” and “The Trip.”

“Boswell” will be adapted by Patrick Edgeworth from his play of the same name and will be directed by Gregor Jordan (“Buffalo Soldiers”). Leo McKern of “Rumpole of the Bailey” fame is the actor most associated with the title role, having toured with it in the U.K. and Australia stage productions.

The deal was announced by Highland Film Group on Sunday at the Toronto International Film Festival. Mark Pennell and Steve Chasman »
