EON Productions to finance and executive produce non-Bond movie 'The Silent Storm'

19-May-2013 • Bond News

James Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson will executive-produce and finance a love story starring Andrea Riseborough and Damian Lewis, due to get underway this summer, according to a report by Screen Daily

Corinna Villari-McFarlane has written and will direct "The Silent Storm", a feature about an enigmatic outsider, played by Riseborough, living on a remote Scottish island who is caught between her commanding husband (Lewis) and a 17 year-old delinquent. Principal photography is due to get underway this summer in Scotland.

“It is very exciting to me to be working with Corinna, a director who has a fresh female voice and a strong creative vision”, said Broccoli, whose EON makes a rare foray into a non-Bond production. “Her inspiring script has attracted two of Britain’s most talented actors and we believe that she will make a powerful film”

On the question of whether Eon would be looking to produce more non-Bond features in the near-future, the outfit told Screen: “We’re always interested in the potential of other projects whether it’s feature film, documentary or theatre, it just so happens we’ve been focusing more on theatre recently with the musical Once on Broadway and now in London.

“The timing on The Silent Storm has worked out well for us, we’re always excited to discover fresh British talent, Corinna is a really inspiring young female director with an incredible vision and her superb script has so far been attracting a fantastic British cast and crew.”
