Cornish Is Fellini’s Muse In “Black & White”

Abbie Cornish (“Bright Star”) has been cast in the female lead role of Betty in Henry Bromell’s “Fellini Black And White” reports Deadline.

Betty is the beautiful veterinarian that filmmaker Federico Fellini (Wagner Moura) falls in love with when he comes to Los Angeles for the Oscars in 1957 and wins Best Picture for Nights Of Cabiria.

Nina Arianda signed on recently to play Italian film star Giulietta Masina, Fellini’s wife. William H. Macy, Terrence Howard and Peter Dinklage also star.
