MANDELA: Long Walk to Freedom
03 January 2014
The epic motion picture will span Mandela’s extraordinary life journey from his childhood in a rural village through to his inauguration as the first democratically elected President of South Africa. It is a thrilling and ultimately joyous story of a good man triumphing against all odds.
Based on a screenplay by Bill Nicholson (Sarafina!, Gladiator, Les Miserables), the film will be directed by Justin Chadwick (The Other Boleyn Girl, The First Grader) and stars Golden-Globe winner, Idris Elba (The Wire, Luther, Prometheus), in the role of Nelson Mandela and Naomie Harris (Skyfall, 28 Days Later, The First Grader) as Winnie Mandela.
