Film To Be Shot In Seven Different Languages



"City Of God" director Fernando Meirelles has gradually been building the cast for his Peter Morgan-scripted relationship drama "360" over the last couple of months but it looks like things are set to finally kick into gear very soon.

According to the website of Meirelles partnered production shingle o2 Films, and confirmed to The Playlist by reps for the actor, British thesp Jude Law has become the latest addition to the project's cast, joining the newly placed Jarnel Debouze, Karl Markovic, Maria Flor and Juliano Cazarre -- all of whom join the previously announced trio of Anthony Hopkins, Rachel Weisz and Ben Foster.

Rapper Eminem and Frances McDormand were also in talks to join the project at one stage but, as their names have never been mentioned since, we presume things didn't come together for both.

While Foster is not mentioned by name on the website, the cast list does precede with a note "to mention a few names" which presumably means they've singled out a few names only and perhaps the ink is not yet fully set for the actor (inquiries to reps for Foster were not answered as of press time). Sure, some of the ones named above might be lesser likes compared to Foster but there's another caveat that might explain that; the film will reportedly be shot in 7 different languages (how did Morgan write this!?) and feature actors of a variety of backgrounds including English, French, German, Austrian, Russian, Moroccan, Algerian and Brazilian. Suffice to say, this film will be made with a global audience in mind.

o2 somewhat cryptically describes the film as "not a film with a grand theme [but] a small film about relationships and the places that our choices take us" though the story itself was previously revealed as a retelling of the classic Arthur Schnitzler play “Reigen." That play was, simply and rather brilliantly, made up of several short scenes between couples, who are shown before or after a sexual liaison. After each scene, one character from the pairing is then shown with another partner, who is then shown with another partner, and so on, until the promiscuity comes full circle.

A fascinating prospect, no doubt, which sounds like it has the potential for a return to form for Meirelles after "The Constant Gardner" and "Blindness." Lensing on it will begin on March 21st in London before moving onto Paris, Vienna and Bratislava, Slovakia.
