Shawshank Redemption Cast Reunite For Film's 20th Anniversary

Twenty years. Two decades. 240 months. Roughly how long it took Andy Dufresne to tunnel through the wall of his cell with a rock hammer in The Shawshank Redemption...
 
However you dress it up, it’s a staggering amount of time. So prepare to feel old and a bit warm inside, because the cast of the 1994 film has just reunited for a special screening held at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
 
Director Frank Darabont joined stars Tim Robbins (Andy) and Morgan Freeman (Red) at the one-off gala, along with other eminent cast members including Clancy Brown (Captain Hadley), David Proval (Snooze), Mark Rolston (Bogs Diamond), Jude Ciccolella (Guard Mert), Gil Bellows (Tommy) and Paul McCrane (Guard Trout).
 
It’s hard not to feel a pinch of nostalgia at the sight of this reunion, and did someone say sequel?
