Roland Joffe Back in Moscow
Renowned British director, scriptwriter and producer Roland Joffe (“Vatel”,” The Scarlet Letter”,”The Mission”) came to Moscow to work on his new feature film “Finding t.A.T.u.” adapted from A. Mitrofanov’s novel “t.A.T.u. COME BACK”. The shooting is set to begin in May, and the plot revolves around the adventures of two young girls in present-day Moscow, a unique city where anything can happen.
It’s the second time Roland works with RAMCO production company in Moscow: In 2005 he directed “Captivity” with Hollywood stars Elisha Cuthbert and Daniel Gillies in the lead roles. Even though “Captivity” opens June, 22 in the US, the movie’s already been hitting the headlines due to the controversial marketing practiced by the movie’s distributor After Dark.
- Roland, you worked on such legendary films as “Vatel”, “The Scarlet Letter”, “The Mission”, “The Killing Fields”, and in May you start shooting “Finding t.A.T.u”. What is it that makes the project attractive to you? Why did you decide to address the subject of modern youth culture?
