Directed by Hamish Grieve, written by Ethan Cohen and Matt Lieberman, and produced by WWE Studios, Walden Media, and Good Universe. Paramount will release this streaming exclusively on Paramount+ December 15th, 2021.

Directed by Ilinca Calugareanu and produced by Mara Adina, Greenwich will release this in select US theaters and on VOD January 14th, 2022.
“The Electrical Life of Louis Wain” turns back to a lighter mood with what looks like a comforting piece of filmmaking boasting an exciting cast including Benedict Cumberbatch, Claire Foy, Sophia Di Martino, and Olivia Coleman as the narrator:
