A Miracle: Matthew Macfadyen reteams with Ben Hopkins in "A Miracle"

Screen Daily has announced that Matthew Macfadyen will be playing the lead in A Miracle by Ben Hopkins. Matthew will be taking on the role of the despairing London schoolteacher Izzy, on the brink of losing both his job and his wife when an opportunity arises to earn some quick and badly needed cash.

The job means flying back from Turkey with a coffin.

A Miracle is a new German-Turkish-French-British coproduction.

Matthew recently completed filming Epic with Ben Hopkins in early April.  Epic is currently in post production.
