THE DAMNED UNITED Movie Pictures with Michael Sheen
Check out pictures from THE DAMNED UNITED starring Michael Sheen, Timothy Spall, Jim Broadbent, and directed by Tom Hooper.
I posted the trailer for The Damned United not too long ago, and it’s definitely a football (and by football I mean soccer) movie targeted at football fans. Although Michael Sheen looks to be giving another great performance.
The Damned United is going to be at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival and will be released to theaters on October 9th, 2009.
The Damned United Synopsis: Set in 1960’s and 1970’s England, The Damned United tells the confrontational and darkly humorous story of Brian Clough’s doomed 44 day tenure as manager of the reigning champions of English football Leeds United. Previously managed by his bitter rival Don Revie, and on the back of their most successful period ever as a football club, Leeds was perceived by many to represent a new aggressive and cynical style of football – an anathema to the principled yet flamboyant Brian Clough, who had achieved astonishing success as manager of Hartlepool and Derby County building teams in his own vision with trusty lieutenant Peter Taylor. Taking the Leeds job without Taylor by his side, with a changing room full of what in his mind were still Don’s boys, would lead to an unheralded examination of Clough’s belligerence and brilliance over 44 days. This is that story. The story of The Damned United.
