Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom is directed by Justin Chadwick (The First Grader, The Other Boleyn Girl) and is produced by Anant Singh, who worked hard to get the movie made. Singh got in touch with Nelson Mandela while he was still in prison and acquired the rights to his book back in 1996.
 
It has been a long process to finally get the film to hit the big screen but it has been well worth it. The screenplay for Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom has been penned by Academy Award® Nominee, writer William Nicholson (Les Misérables, Gladiator, Shadowlands).
