- Selene obtained an update on Love and Virtue, the Raoul Ruiz film that will star Damian Lewis as Orlando, from Fountain of Life Productions:
» Pre-production (building of the sets, etc.) is now scheduled for mid-April. The delay is due to a funding adjustment needed because of a recent governmental decision about moviemaking in the UK.
» The Oscar nominated composer Lalo Schifrin has already written music for five songs for the soundtrack that are based on lyrics by scriptwriter Mia Sperber. “The music is phenomenal and one of the most beautiful melodies goes to the song of Orlando (Damian Lewis) and Angelica (Virginie Ledoyen); the tracks will be sung by Hayley Westenra and Aled Jones.
» “Everything is going really well and we are delighted to have with us not only the highly talented and original Damian, but also such legendary actors as John Malkovich and Peter O’Toole.”
