TO STAR IN SUMMER NIGHT, WINTER MOON ADAPTATION
Here's an interesting movie for you: 1935 set thriller movie SUMMER NIGHT, WINTER MOON will star Stephen Fry in a film directed by
Xavier Koller and based on a book by Jane Huxley.
Art dealer Trevor (John Moulder Brown) and his best friend Dante, an Italian/ American fashion photographer, holiday in Capri where they both fall for Antonia (Caterina Murino), a local beauty. One of them marries her. Back in London Antonia is last seen in Regent's Park walking her Jack Russell terrier. The remains of a female body are recovered from Regent's Canal, and both her husband and his best friend are suspects in what increasingly appears to be a murder. This fast-moving story travels backwards in time. Exploration of the mystery of Antonia's fate follows twists and turns as hair-raising as the roads on the mountainous isle of Capri. The audience is
ushered to the astonishing ending, proving along the way that the deepest mystery of all is that of the soul torn between desire and loyalty.

MARGERY BOOTH ADAPTATION
THE SPY IN THE EAGLE'S NEST
Speaking of Stephen Fry, he will also star in another period set drama MARGERY BOOTH: THE SPY IN THE EAGLE'S NEST based on a book by Ralph Harvey. Anna Friel will play this English opera singer
who was working for MI6 and hiding escaped British airmen in her Berlin apartment. She sang to British PoWs, worked with MI6 spy John Brown and eventually gave evidence at war crimes trials. Margery was with Hitler on his birthday when he was presented with the Tiger Tank. As a singer she was able to remember some critical technical data as a song which was sent back to Bletchley Park for decoding via her controller Hardy Amies (John Moulder Brown will star with Fry in this one as well) and to the delight of Churchill who then ordered the capture of one. She had a narrow escape whilst hiding British airmen and was eventually caught by the Gestapo on the personal orders of Goering after being constantly shadowed by SS thug von Müller who eventually tortured her. Stephen Fry will be Reichsmarschall Hermann Goering! Udo Kier was previously attached to star as Hitler.
