Director Alan Parker has hit financing troubles in his attempt to turn acclaimed West End musical “Blood Brothers” into a film.
According to Starpulse News Blog, Parker says that the production needs at least US$40 million to progress – and he’s adamant that if he doesn’t get it he’ll not do the film.
“Blood brothers is a cultural icon. We don’t want to make a little film – we prefer to make it properly or not at all” he says.
Although there’s no direct source for it, the names Cate Blanchett and Bono are being mentioned as contenders being lined up for the project.
