Rolul principal in filmul biografic „A Special Relationship“, despre viata actritei Elizabeth Taylor, va fi interpretat de o castigatoare a premiului Oscar.

Rachel Weisz a fost desemnata sa o interpreteze pe Elizabeth Taylor in productia „A Special Relationship”, anunta Variety. Povestea va fi redata din perspectiva prieteniei dintre marea actrita si asistentul ei, Roger Wall.

Bazat pe scenariul semnat de Simon Beaufoy (laureat al unui premiu Oscar pentru „Slumdog Millionaire”), lungmetrajul va fi regizat de un duo feminin, Bert & Bertie („Troop Zero”).

Filmul va fi produs de Iain Canning si Emile Sherman („The King’s Speech”) de la See-Saw Films. Simon Gillis, presedintele companiei See-Saw, si Danny Perkins, fostul director al Studiocanal, sunt producatori executivi alaturi de Barbara Berkowitz si Tim Mendelson, administratori ai Elizabeth Taylor Estate/House of Taylor Trust.

Nominalizata de cinci ori la premiile Oscar, Elizabeth Taylor a castigat in doua randuri aceasta distinctie, pentru rolurile din „Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” si „Butterfield 8”. Celebra pentru stilul ei de viata si multiplele casnicii, actrita a avut un rol activ in lupta impotriva SIDA.

„Publicul este fascinat, fara indoiala, de vietile starurilor de la Hollywood. Nu exista vreunul mai emblematic decat Elizabeth Taylor, iar Simon Beaufoy a scris un rol care scoate in lumina umorul si umanitatea lui Elizabeth, care vor fi excelent aduse la viata de aptitudinile extraordinare ale lui Rachel Weisz”, au transmis Canning si Sherman.

Mike Todd was an American theater and film producer, best known for the 1956 production of “Around the World in 80 Days.” The hit film won five Academy Awards, including Best Picture. ⁣ ⁣ Mike was Elizabeth’s third husband, and she was his third wife. Their love was spectacular, but tragically brief. Barely seven months after their daughter Liza was born in 1957, Mike died in a plane crash while aboard his twin-engine jet, “The Liz.” ⁣ ⁣ Elizabeth later proclaimed that Mike Todd and Richard Burton were her two true loves. ⁣ ⁣ Today would have been Mike Todd’s 110th Birthday. ⁣ ⁣ Those who know Liza say she has Mike's smile and mannerisms. Along with her father's mannerisms, Liza carries on the spirit, legacy, and joy for life of her parents every day, as do her sons, Quinn and Rhys, who are also ambassadors to The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation (ETAF) with Quinn also serving as a co-Trustee of The Elizabeth Taylor Estate. ⁣ ⁣ Visit the official Elizabeth Taylor Facebook page for more images. ⁣ ⁣ #Celebration⁣ #OTD⁣ #ElizabethTaylor⁣ #Courage

Weisz a castigat un Oscar pentru rolul secundar din „A Constant Gardener” (2005) si a fost nominalizata la aceeasi categorie pentru aparitia din recentul „The Favourite” (2018).

Canning si Sherman au mai spus ca „cele mai bune prietene din viata reala Bart & Bertie sunt regizorii perfecti pentru a spune povestea din „A Special Relationship” si ca reprezinta „o celebrare a modului in care prieteniile pot schimba vietile oamenilor si a modului in care Elizabeth a ajutat la schimbarea lumii”.
