Old Sylvia Miles footage to feature in new movie

Late actress Sylvia Miles is set to be resurrected onscreen for what was to be her next movie project thanks to candid video footage filmed in the 1980s.
The Oscar-nominated scene stealer passed away in New York on 12 June (19), before she could film scenes for director Eric Spade Rivas’ independent project, Japanese Borscht, in which she was due to co-star with actor Michael Musto.
However, Rivas has since managed to secure the rights to footage of Miles filmed by late videographer Nelson Sullivan back in 1984, when she was captured chatting to a friend over the phone.
According to the New York Post’s Page Six column, he now plans to edit scenes in his drama to make it appear as if the actress is on the phone with Musto in an effort to pay tribute to the 94 year old.
Japanese Borscht, which is due for release later this year (19), would have marked Miles’ first acting gig in six years, since featuring in short film Old Monster in 2013.
