Excellent news about a new project for Max:
It’s dueling violins as two biopics on legendary Baroque composer Antonio Vivaldi go head-to-head, with Boris Damast’s long-in-development project set to beat Patricia Riggen’s Vivaldi out of the gate.
Damast’s Vivaldi is set to begin shooting this September in Venice, Hungary, Germany and Bruges. Claire Foy (Season of the Witch) and Max Irons (Red Riding Hood) are attached to the project, with negotiations underway with Neve Campbell, Jacqueline Bisset, Elle Fanning, Tom Wilkinson, Alfred Molina and Sebastian Koch. Celsius Entertainment has picked up the project for international sales.
Damast’s script for Vivaldi, co-written with Jeffrey Freedman, tells the true story of how the composer turned a group of outcasts – the illegitimate daughters of courtesans – into an orchestra that eventually played for the Pope.
