Coming to Sky this December, Michael Sheen and Nathalie Emmanuel star in Last Train to Christmas

Michael Sheen (The Twilight Saga, The Queen) and Nathalie Emmanuel (Game of Thrones, Fast & Furious 7) have joined the cast of Last Train to Christmas, a brand new Sky Original film. Written and directed by Julian Kemp, produced by Sky, Future Artists Entertainment and Stigma Films the title will release on Sky Cinema and streaming service NOW this Christmas, available from 18 December.

Here’s the storyline:

Tony Towers (Sheen) is about to take the trip of a lifetime. It’s 1985 and he’s a successful nightclub manager, a local celebrity and engaged to a much younger woman, Sue (Emmanuel). Things are going great. But when he embarks upon the 3:17 to Nottingham for a Christmas family reunion, things get a little strange. Moving up a carriage to the buffet car lands him in 1995, where he finds his clubs have failed and his life has fallen apart. Tony discovers that by moving up and down this fateful train, he can transport himself forward and backward to various stages of his life. Not only that, but the actions he takes in one carriage directly affect his life in the next. The question is, can Tony change his life – and the lives of the people he loves — for the better, or will he just make things worse?

It’s a fascinating idea for a story, and we look forward to finding out how it develops. You can read more in the Sky announcement. Sheen is current working on Good Omens 2 with David Tennant.
