This first image has been released from Mike Leigh’s forthcoming, thus far untitled biopic of J.M.W. Turner, currently in post-production in London.

The film co-stars Marion Bailey, Dorothy Atkinson and Paul Jesson. The crew includes producer Georgina Lowe, cinematographer Dick Pope, production designer Suzie Davies, costume designer Jacqueline Durran and make-up and hair designer Christine Blundell (who won an Oscar for Topsy-Turvy).

‘Untitled 13’ is a Thin Man Films production presented by Film4, Focus Features International and the BFI.
