Dustin Hoffman, Alfred Molina and Kathy Bates will star in "The Red Violin" director Francois Girard's new drama "The Boychoir" at Informant Media and Embankment Films.
Ben Ripley penned the script about a stern choirmaster (Hoffman) who locks horns with a talented youngster from the wrong side of the tracks.
Molina plays another teacher and Bates is the headmistress. A global search is underway for a young performer with dramatic and musical talent to play the lead.
Judy Cairo, Carol Baum and Jane Goldenring are producing. Filming begins in February in Connecticut and New York.
