The Lewis Brothers At It Again?
by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | March 23, 2018
In an article published in The Astana Times, scriptwriter, producer and director Aidiye Aidarbekov stated “I wrote the script for the Flags Over Berlin film produced by Dauren Toleukhanov. British filmmaker Gareth Lewis and actor Damian Lewis will join the project.”
Research indicates the film will be directed by Damian’s brother, who is a writer, producer and director. The film The Baker (2007), also known as Assassin in Love, starring Damian himself, was written and directed by Damian’s talented brother and business partner Gareth Lewis, a joint project produced under their production company at the time, Picture Farm, Ltd., along with partner Adrian Sturges. At the world premiere of The Baker at Canada’s Tremblant Film Festival, Gareth was named Best Director. Damian and Adrian Sturges also produced the Gareth Lewis written and directed short film Normal for Norfolk featuring the one and only Helen McCrory. It’s all in the family!
So what is Flags Over Berlin?

James Ivory, 89, could make Oscar history. Does he have potential work lined up for Damian?
by Jake Coyle | SF Gate | February 2, 2018
L: Richard II of England – R: Damian Lewis
James Ivory didn’t see “Call Me By Your Name” with an audience until the week before he was nominated for its screenplay. But if “Call Me by Your Name,” about the sun-dappled relationship between 17-year-old Elio (Timothee Chalamet) and a visiting grad student (Armie Hammer), radiates with the tumultuous emotions of youth, it’s also composed with the insight of age.
Ivory is 89, and should he win the Oscar for adapting Andre Aciman’s 2007 novel — as Ivory is widely expected to — he’ll become the oldest Oscar winner ever.
For the past several years and after stalled efforts, Ivory still hopes to direct a film version of Shakespeare’s “Richard II,” with a script penned by Chris Terrio (“Argo,” ”Justice League”) and envisions Tom Hiddleston and Damian Lewis in the feature roles. “A Shakespeare film does not grab the hearts of financiers, I can tell you,” he says. “At the moment I’m very optimistic it will happen.”
Not all that unheard of since according to Damian’s filmography, he voiced Bolingbroke on a Richard II radio broadcast.
