Today on the show, we have the fantastic team behind The Duke, producer Nicky Bentham and the screenwriting duo Richard Bean & Clive Coleman. The Duke is directed by the late Roger Michell, who sadly passed away last year, starring Jim Broadbent, Helen Mirren, Heather Craney, Stephen Rashbrook and many more.
Nicky chatted with our host Dom Lenoir about her journey into producing, developing a script that is based on a true story, finding the right cast and what it’s like to produce a big film such as The Duke.
Richard & Clive, on the other hand, talked about how the project came about, their research and writing collaboration, and dealing with notes and changes. They also discuss how they started in the industry, their theatre background, and guiding the audience as a writer.
Don’t miss Dom’s second solo-hosting and our wonderful guests talking about how their lovely film came about. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s episode with Nicky Bentham, Richard Bean & Clive Coleman.
