Michael Sheen has transformed himself yet again into another historical figure in Damned United. Sheen sure has carved out his niche. This time he’ll be portraying legendary football (soccer) manager Brian Clough who was in charge of Leeds United in 1974 for 44 days. The film also stars Jim Broadbent as Clough’s belligerent Derby chairman Sam Longson, Timothy Spall as long-time assistant Peter Taylor and Colm Meaney as his Leeds’ predecessor Don Revie.
All I can say is that I know very little about football, but this film looks amazing. Check out the trailer below…
The film is due out March 27th.
What do you think? You up for watching it football fan or not?
