Susan Sarandon, Martin Sheen and Cliff Curtis are all attached to star in Gerard Corbiau’s “The Dreamers” reports Production Weekly.
The story follows an opera singer who loses her voice in a fire and decides to travel the world anonymously.
The project is based on a screenplay that the late Orson Welles and Oja Kodar penned together based on two stories from the 1934 novel “Seven Gothic Tales” by Isak Dinesen.
The script is described as one of Welles’ most personal works and one of his last surviving unfilmed projects (funding was never quite forthcoming for the project).
Corbiau (“Farinelli,” “Le maitre de musique”) will direct after more than a decade’s absence from feature filmmaking.
