Jim Broadbent, Judi Dench to Star in Film Co-written by Eddie Izzard

Jim Broadbent in February 2018, in Berlin, Germany.

Because we all need something to look forward to, rest assured that your favorite pretend professor will once again be returning to a classroom environment in the upcoming film Six Minutes to Midnight. The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Broadbent will be joining a cast no one could hate, including Dame Judi Dench, Carla Juri, James D’Arcy, and Eddie Izzard who also co-wrote the screenplay.

Though it’s stacked with talent, don’t expect a feel-good romp. The film is a thriller set in the 1930s and follows a teacher at a British finishing school, “where the daughters of high-ranking Nazis learn to become faithful members of Hitler’s League of German Girls.” So, yeah. But hey, Jim Broadbent and Judi Dench!
