Love & Virtue still on track
From Screen Daily comes news from the American Film Market* that a long simmering project that Jonathan has been attached to is back on track. *AFM is an annual event in Santa Monica, CA where countless production and distribution deals are closed:
Veteran auteur Raul Ruiz’s long-gestating big budget medieval epic Love and Virtue, which chronicles the battles waged within King Charlemagne’s empire, has been given a new lease of life.
New Australian outfit Galloping Films, headed by Carlos Alperin, has now come on board as sales agent and closed a handful of pre-sales here to the CIS (Lizard Cinema), Bulgaria (Tandem Video), and the Middle East (Falcon.)
Meanwhile, the big name cast announced in 2007 is still in place. Jonathan Rhys Meyers, John Malkovich, Daryl Hannah and Damien Lewis remain committed to the film.
The aim is to shoot the film in early summer next year on location in Belgium and Luxembourg before moving to London.
