Dustin Hoffman’s directorial debut, Quartet, now boasts an acclaimed quartet of actors. The film, which kicks off principal photography today, will star Maggie Smith (Harry Potter), Tom Courtenay (Doctor Zhivago), Billy Connolly (The Last Samurai), and Pauline Collins (Shirley Valentine). It’s quite a list — there are nine Oscar nominations among the four of them, and two wins. (Though, you must mostly credit Smith, who has been nominated six times and won twice.)

Also starring in the feature: Sheridan Smith (Legally Blonde, The Musical) and Michael Gambon (Harry Potter). Quartet follows a group of retired opera singers whose relationships cause drama for their upcoming performance.

    I’ve always wanted to see Dustin Hoffman and Philip Seymour Hoffman do a movie together so that we would finally see the two greatest Hoffmans of all time together on screen. They are both incredible actors and it would be amazing to see them bounce off each other in a film.

    That is an amazing cast! I would definitely go see it for the cast alone, but the premise sounds great too. Plus, Dustin Hoffman and Maggie Smith = Hook and Wendy – LOVE IT!

    Great article. I cant wait to hear more about your research tool. If it is as good as your other products, then you will have another winner. Your article pretty much summed up what I have been seeing too. Great to see some hard data.
