Gibson & Penn Get A Bit Beardy

“Between genius and madness” lies a dictionary, apparently. After a protracted legal battle that threatened it would never see the light of a cinema screen, Mel Gibson’s passion project The Professor and the Madman is finally due to get a release later this year.

Based around the creation of the Oxford English Dictionary, Gibson plays the Professor – James Murray, whilst Penn is the Madman – Dr William Minor, who made a major contribution in the form of 10,000 entries, despite being an incarcerated asylum inmate.

For good measure, Steve Coogan is in there somewhere as well.
