Speculation on new project?
From an article on Malcolm McDowell, during his Cannes Film Festival press interviews, comes speculation about a possible new project in the works for Jonny:
McDowell has spent decades as a journeyman actor in U.S. television with the occasional opportunity for something original such as Mike Hodges’ excellent “ll Sleep When I’m Dead.” He is planning to work with Hodges again on a screen treatment of the Thomas Mann novella “Mario and the Magician” costarring with Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Kaplan, who is raising the money for it, says they had wanted to do it several years ago with McDowell playing Mario and Laurence Olivier as the magician, but it never happened.
No other details or sources on this. Thanks to Sheila for finding this.
