Elijah Wood (“The Lord of the Rings”) and Celyn Jones (“Joe’s Palace”) are set to star in the new 1950s-set drama “Fire to the Stars”.
The story deals with the turbulent relationship between aspiring poet John Malcolm Brinnin (Wood) and his hero, the famed hellraising Welsh poet Dylan Thomas (Jones).
Kelly Reilly also stars as Thomas’ wife, Shirley Henderson and Steven Mackintosh also have roles.
Andy Goddard (“Downton Abbey,” “Doctor Who”) helms from a script he co-wrote with Jones. The project will shoot on location in and around Thomas’s spiritual home of Swansea, Wales from the end of this month.
