Film legends getting immortalised in biopics are hot properties at the moment with GRACE OF MONACO (Grace Kelly – played by Nicole Kidman), THE GIRL (Hitchcock’s obsession with Tippi Hedren movie), HITCHCOCK (Anthony Hopkins playing the fat man) and FELLINI BLACK & WHITE all in production.
The latter chronicles Federico Fellini’s 1957 trip to LA for the Oscars where his film NIGHTS OF CABIRIA was nominated. 2 days prior to the ceremony Fellini disappeared.
Aussie Abbie Cornish has landed the role of the love interest Betty and she joins Wagner Moura, Terrence Howard, Peter Dinklage William H Macy and Nina Arianda in the film.
So all you cinephiles – mark this one in your diary for around this time next year.
