Actress Felicity Jones has been roped
in for Luca Guadagnino's yet untitled film, which is inspired by the
classic ballet "Swan Lake".
"Swan Lake" is a classic ballet which was composed by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky in 1875-76.
Kristina Lauren Anderson has been roped in to pen the script, while several major studios, including Paramount Pictures and Universal, are among the bidders for the film's distribution, reports variety.com.
Mandeville Films is on board as its producer.
"Swan Lake" is based on Odette, a princess who is turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer's curse. The new take will not involve any ballet but will instead use the story as the centrepiece for a major studio tentpole.
