Santana Brothers plan films with Fiennes, Kurylenko, Lewis
British director and producer team, Dominic and Lee Santana have arrived in Cannes with a trio of high-profile stars attached to the next two films being produced under their UK-based Santana Brothers production banner.
“We have two films going into production this fall so things are moving incredibly fast for us right now,” said the brothers. “Casting has been our main priority over the last month and we’re very excited that Damian, Ralph and Olga are on board for their respective roles. Ralph and Olga are the perfect leads for Coronet given the on-screen chemistry they can generate to bring the story to life. Damian is a remarkably gifted actor who will command the screen in Man Is Wolf. We’re eager to get started on both films.”
Inspired by true events, Coronet is written and directed by Temple Clark. Lee Santana is producing. In the film, Guy (Ralph Fiennes), an English graphic designer working on assignment in Prague, strikes up an unorthodox romantic relationship with his cleaner, Maryska. Shooting is due to begin in the autumn. The film will shoot in London and Prague.
Man Is Wolf To Man is an action thriller inspired by true events in French Guyana in 1934 where a group of foreign prisoners escaped from a penal colony, only to be tracked by a ruthless and notorious bounty hunter. In addition to Lewis, the film stars Pihla Viitala and young German star Vinzenz Kiefer. Additional cast will be announced in the coming weeks.
