This year's London Film Festival will close with the European premiere of a new adaptation of Great Expectations, directed by Mike Newell.
The classic Charles Dickens novel has been adapted for the screen, both big and small, many times, but this one looks set to be rather special with a script from One Day author David Nicholls, and a cast that includes Helena Bonham Carter as Miss Haversham and Ralph Fiennes as Magwitch.
Its other cast members include Jeremy Irvine, Robbie Coltrane, Ewen Bremner and David Walliams.
"It's a great honour to be invited to be the BFI London Film Festival's closing night film," said Newell, whose other films include Four Weddings and a Funeral.
"I've tried to make a film that is true to the theatrical vividness, energetic characters and high colour that [Dickens] is loved for."
Nicholls revealed last year that he had written a new ending for his "thriller" version of the film. "Dickens came up with two endings - one which is incredibly bleak and one which is unrealistically romantic and sentimental," he said last November.
"Neither are quite satisfactory and we've come up with an ending that is somewhere in between."
He also said the film would give a glimpse of Miss Havisham's wedding, an event that has not been seen in previous movie versions.
Great Expectations will be released in UK cinemas on 30 November.
Frankenweenie, an animation directed by Bonham Carter's partner Tim Burton, will open the festival on 10 October.
