Eleanor Tomlinson and Aidan Turner in New Biopic

“Aidan Turner and Eleanor Tomlinson are working together again, this time on a biopic about Vincent Van Gogh, according to Screen Daily. The film Loving Vincent is the ‘world’s first animation feature’ where live action is filmed, projected onto canvas, then painted in oils frame by frame in the style of Van Gogh. 60 artists are working on the project.

Aidan and Eleanor will join a cast that includes Douglas Booth, Chris O'Dowd, Jerome Flynn, Saoirse Ronan and John Sessions. The director is Dorota Kobiela.

Principal photography on the biopic has already begun in London.”
