Sam Heughan Joins Patricia Neal/Roald Dahl Biopic as Paul Newman


Sam Heughan (Outlander) has been cast to play Paul Newman in a new Patricia Neal and Roald Dahl’s biopic.

Keeley Hawes stars as Neal with Hugh Bonneville as Dahl, John Hay (Lost Christmas) is attached to direct.

Formerly known as An Unquiet Life, the film charts the early 1960s period when Charlie And The Chocolate Factory author Dahl and Breakfast At Tiffany’s star Neal retreated to the English countryside to bring up their young family. The somewhat unlikely pair – an in-demand Hollywood actress and a burgeoning children’s author – find their relationship put to the test, and ultimately strengthened, by tragic events.
