USA: Mad To Be Normal Picked Up By Samuel Goldwyn Films For 2018 Release



The long-awaited release of David Tennant's movie Mad To Be Normal looks to be set for the USA as Samuel Goldwyn Films announce that they have picked up the distribution rights for the States. The news comes hot on the heels of David's co-star Elisabeth Moss's weekend Emmy win for her role in TV phenomenon The Handmaid's Tale, while David himself has been hitting the headlines as he begins work on the 2019 comedy drama Good Omens.

Mad To Be Normal was written and directed by Robert Mullen and is based on the life of maverick psychiatrist RD Laing, played by David Tennant. Laing's radical medication-free approach to treating mental illness put him at odds with the rest of the medical community throughout his career. In the late 1960s he set up a project in Kingsley Hall in London where people experiencing psychosis and medical staff lived together as equals, and it is this partially successful experiment that is explored in the movie. Elisabeth Moss plays Laing's fictional partner Angie, while Michael Gambon and Gabriel Byrne appear as two of his patients. 

The film was co-produced by Mullen's own company Gizmo Films, and Bad Penny Productions, the company behind David Tennant's upcoming feature You, Me And Him.

Samuel Goldwyn Films have indicated that they are aiming for a winter 2018 theatrical release.
