Stephen Bradley’s Noble as well as an adaptation of the chamber opera play The Giacomo Variations, starring John Malkovich, are among the new films on Screenbase this week.
Yesterday [Jan 10] shooting kicked off on Bradley’s Noble starring Liam Cunningham, Deirdre O’Kane, Brendan Coyle, Ruth Negga and Nhu Quynh Nguyen. The biopic is jointly produced by UK’s Destiny Films and Vietnam’s Starfilm and centres on Christina Noble who overcame her own harsh childhood to help youngsters around the world. Bradley wrote the script and in addition to directing he is also producing alongside Melanie Gore-Grimes. Ansty Productions provided financial support. The film is shooting in Ho Chi Minh City and Liverpool until early March and a release is planned for later this year.
John Malkovich is attached to the adaptation of The Giacomo Variations, which is based on the chamber opera play and has been performed around the globe starring Malkovich since its premiere in 2011. Michael Sturminger will direct the Amour Fou production and also jointly produce with Martin Haselböck. The film has already received financing from the Vienna Film Fund.
