Winona Ryder and Saïd Taghmaoui ( “Three Kings” ) will star in “O Jerusalem” for director Elie Chouraqui ( “Harrison’s Flowers” ). The film, based on the book by Domenica Lapierre and Larry Collins about the creation of the state of Israel, tells the story of a young Palestinian and his Jewish friend and the tragic events that separate them. Filming is scheduled to begin April 10 in Greece. Commea Cinema and the French version of Yahoo are both reporting this.
The bad news is that it seems ‘A Scanner Darkly‘ gets pushed back to March 2006 according to movies.com.
The animation in the first trailer for Richard Linklater’s trippy flick showcases its groundbreaking animation, but maybe coordinating a huge team of digital artists is one reason why the Philip K. Dick adaptation has been pushed back to March 2006. Bummer — we were looking forward to seeing it in September.
Thanks to Rundstedt2001 for the find.
