George Fenton (Dangerous LiaisonsGroundhog Day, Ever After, Anna and the KingThe Blue Planet) has recently recorded his score for the upcoming British comedy drama The Duke. The film is directed by Roger Michell (Notting Hill, Changing Lanes) and stars Jim Broadbent, Helen Mirren, Fionn Whitehead, Matthew Goode and Anna Maxwell Martin. The movie revolves around a 60 year-old London cab driver who in 1961 stole Goya’s portrait of the Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery, the only robbery in the museum’s history. Richard Bean and Clive Coleman have written the screenplay. Nicky Bentham (The Silent Storm) is producing the Pathé, Ingenious Media and Screen Yorkshire production. The Duke will premiere next month at the 2020 Venice Film Festival and is set to be released in early 2021 in the UK and other European markets.

Fenton’s recent projects include Andy Tennant’s The Secret: Dare to Dream, which was released in the U.S. last month on VOD and is currently playing in theaters in numerous international territories. The composer has also recently released the album The Piano Framed.
