David Scheinmann to direct coming-of-age drama.

LONDON – Brian Cox, Natascha McElhone, Anne Reid and Philip Jackson are all aboard to play the grown-ups in David Scheinmann’s Theatre Of Dreams.

The movie’s title comes from one of the names given to English soccer team Manchester United’s ground.

The movie is billed as a fictional coming-of-age drama about how the club’s legendary manager Matt Busby helps an 11-year-old rascal fulfil his footballing dreams.

It is set to shoot in Manchester this month and next and is produced by double Emmy-nominated Bill and Ben Productions.

It will be distributed in the U.K. during 2012 by Trinity Films.

Fresh faced 10-year-old lead Jack Smith takes the child lead in the movie following a nationwide casting search.
