Since the birth of Steel Mill Pictures, Marshall has produced five feature films and has a wealth of material in development, including a feature film for Focus Features. Completed films include the critically acclaimed London to Brighton (2006), The Cottage (2008) and Cherry Tree Lane (2010). Marshall’s latest project, Song for Marion (2013), had its world premiere as the official Closing Night Film at the Toronto International Film Festival 2012 and is slated for a wide theatrical release in multiple territories around the world in spring-summer 2013, including a US release with The Weinstein Company.
