      HUGH SKINNER TO LEAD
 FALLING FOR FIGARO OPERATIC ROMANTIC COMEDY MOVIE
Hugh Skinner starred in Harlots and Poldark
A month or so ago, I informed you that a new musical movie filled with opera is on its way and now we have the male lead revealed for FALLING FOR FIGARO, a romantic comedy which already features Danielle Macdonald and Joanna Lumley in lead female roles. Harlots star Hugh Skinner has joined the cast together with Shazad Latif, Rebecca Benson and Gary Lewis as Screen Daily reports. 

Danielle Macdonald plays a brilliant young fund manager, who decides to leave her unfulfilling job and long term boyfriend to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming an opera singer, in the Scottish Highlands. She begins intense vocal training with a former opera diva (Joanna Lumley) and meets a fellow student (Hugh Skinner) who is also training for an upcoming contest. The film will feature arias from famous operas including The Barber Of Seville, The Marriage Of Figaro, Don Giovanni, Romeo And Juliet and Carmen.

   NATALIE DORMER TO PRODUCE
 SPITFIRE SISTERS WW2 SERIES
It is possible Natalie will also star in  the series
After launching her own production company, the star of many period set projects Natalie Dormer has joined with Freemantle on SPITFIRE SISTERS, an eight episode WW2 series which will follow the women of the Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA), the ‘glamour girls’ of the battle as they take on one of the most dangerous jobs in the war. Filled with friendships, love, camaraderie, and deep tragedy and loss, the women of ATA were tasked with flying 90 different types of aircraft from base to base ready for the frontline. Female pilots from all over the world travelled to the UK to join the group but the glamour of being in the ATA came with the tragedy of flying during the war. SPITFIRE SISTERS is the war through the eyes of the women; the dangers they faced and their fight for acceptance and equality. Morgan Lloyd Malcolm is penning the scripts for the upcoming series.

  1. 'Falling for Figaro' - that's my kind of movie.
    I like comedies, I love opera music, I admire opera performers. I'm not fond of competitions, though.

  2. Spitfire Sisters sounds good. I do like Natalie Dormer in most roles. I think she's prettier as a brunette, but she does look lovely in this photo with the blond hair.
