Camilla Belle’s reimagined A Midsummer Night’s Dream is officially a Fox project.
Fox International Productions has joined the team behind the 26-year-old half-Brazilian American actress’ latest film Amapola.
The directorial feature debut of Argentinian opera and theater director and Oscar-winning art director Eugenio Zanetti, the film is described as a romantic reimagining of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream set against the turbulent backdrops of the 1962 Argentinian military coup and the 1982 war for the Falkland Islands.
Belle stars are the title character in the film, which also stars Francois Arnaud, Geraldine Chaplin, Lito Cruz and Leonor Benedetto.
Production on the film, which Zanetti wrote, is underway in El Tigre, Argentina.
Twentieth Century Fox will distribute the film in Latin America.
