Cheri (Film), 1920’s Paris. To feature a photo from the website

Over the past fortnight I’ve been exchanging a few emails with a couple of members of a film production team, working on a movie named “Cheri” set in Paris in the 1920’s and due for release next year. I spoke to the assistant of Andras Hamori (producer for such films as Sunshine and eXistenZ which I loved) as they wish to use one of the photographs on my website as part of the opening title to the film. Apparently there will be about 40 images over a period of 45 seconds with narration to describe La Belle Époque (the beautiful era) in Paris. Keep your eyes peeled for this photo (Grand Entrance) as if all goes ahead it will be appearing in the film! Well that’s my very small claim to fame for today.

I believe the film is based on the book Cheri by Colette, so I imagine it will about an older woman and a young lover. The film will feature Michelle Pfeiffer, Kathy Bates and Rupert Friend (who I think lives in Paris with Keira Knightley) amongst others. Can I use that old clichéd adage – ‘you heard it here first folks’ – hmmm, it does sound rather tacky.
