The Russian Cinema Fund is co-producing several titles with monies totalling $6.5 million, among them Ralph Fiennes' "The Two Women." The film is an adaptation of Ivan Turgenev's 19th century comedy play "A Month in the Country," about a woman and her-step daughter, both of whom are in love with the same man. Russia's Horosho Productions, Germany's Film Base and France's Fluid are producing. The film will shoot in Smolensk with director Vera Glagoleva at the helm, and is slated for  2014 release.

Here's more from Variety on the Fund's other projects, including "WWI," "Amphibian Man," "Crazy Regatta" and "Players." Now under control of the Ministry of Culture, the Fund's 2012 expediture included a total of $30 million in support of socially relevant film projects, including the promotion of Russian films internationally.

Fiennes is also set for Wes Anderson's "Grand Budapest Hotel." He also directs and stars as Charles Dickens in "The Invisible Woman," alongside Felicity Jones and Kristin Scott Thomas. The film is currently in post and is set to be distributed by Lionsgate.
