Gruffudd and Finney Say ‘Grace’

ON

Mr. Fantastic, aka Sir Lancelot, aka Ioan Gruffudd and Albert Finney have both just signed on to star in Amazing Grace for Michael Apted.

The film is based on the life of British anti-slavery pioneer William Wilberforce (Gruffudd) and follows his 18th century political career, which placed him at odds with some of the most powerful men of the time, including the king. Finney will play John Newton, a Wilberforce confidant.
