    Northern Echo:



    Shooting has started on the new Mike Leigh film, UNTITLED 09. His first film since the award-winning HAPPY-GO-LUCKY will shoot for nine weeks on location in London with a cast that includes Jim Broadbent, Phil Davis, Lesley Manville, Imelda Staunton and Peter Wright.



    Of the cast of 12 only two - David Bradley and Stuart McQuarrie - are working with Leigh for the first time.



    He's working with many of his regular crew including cinematographer Dick Pope and editor Jon Gregory.

    Glad to see he has two actors working with him for the first time, but I do wish it were more. Using the same actors over and over is just playing it safe, and even though good performances are guaranteed it's a shame not to give new talent the same opportunities.

    Have enjoyed most of Mike's work very much ("Home Sweet Home" is possibly my all-time favorite). Looking forward to the new one, though hope to see something less "commercial" than "Happy Go Lucky" was.
