Director Robert Altman will be bringing his signature brand of filmmaking to Britain, and the country’s top-notch actors are apparently the first to rejoice.
Jude Law (“The Talented Mr. Ripley“), Emily Watson (“Breaking the Waves“) and Kristin Scott Thomas (“The English Patient“) are among the ensemble cast that have signed on to Altman‘s “Gosford Park,” Daily Variety reports.
“Lots of actors want to be in the film, but it is a question of fitting it into their schedules,” Altman‘s spokesman said.
In typical Altman-esque narrative style, the film is said to be about the relations among different social classes in 1930s Britain.
The film is about a father and son reunion amid the 1,100-mile Iditarod dogsled race in Alaska. Coburn will be the father, Gooding the son and Sisqo his cousin.
BEHIND THE ORANGE CERTAIN: “Roswell’s” Colin Hanks is set to star in the comedy “Orange County,” the Reporter also says. And instead of being a story following some wannabe poseur O.C. skate punk, as one might naturally suspect, the film is actually about a high school kid with Ivy League dreams of studying at Stanford University.
