FELIC­ITY JONES TO STAR IN FILM VER­SION OF SWAN LAKE

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Time Out -

English ac­tor Felic­ity Jones (right) is set to join the cast of a new movie, which is in­spired by the clas­sic bal­let Swan Lake.

The un­ti­tled film is to be di­rected by Luca Guadagnino, who helmed the 2017 film Call Me by Your Name, ac­cord­ing to The Hol­ly­wood Reporter. The project, which went on the mar­ket right be­fore the Fourth of July week­end (in the US), has sparked a bidding war among ma­jor stu­dios, namely Uni­ver­sal, Para­mount and TriS­tar. Swan Lake, com­posed by the Rus­sian mae­stro Py­otr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, fol­lows Odette, a princess who is turned into a swan by a sor­cerer’s curse. The new take will re­port­edly not in­volve any bal­let but would be based on the story told in the bal­let. The 2010 thriller Black Swan, di­rected by Dar­ren Aronof­sky, used the play as in­spi­ra­tion for its story, but did not fol­low the sto­ry­line of the clas­sic bal­let.

Black Swan had earned its lead ac­tor, Natalie Port­man, an Acad­emy Award and a Golden Globe Award in 2011.
