Gielgud Films has optioned a screenplay ‘A Book About Her’ by Jordan Annalise Wilson. This is now in development to be produced and directed by Suzanne Gielgud as a feature film.
Congratulations to all the wonderful cast and creatives who took part in a table read through of Olga (working title) over zoom yesterday. A wealth of talent from London, LA, Munich and St Petersburg including Trevor Eve, Sharon Maughan, John Partridge and international ballet stars Wayne Sleep, Laurretta Summerscales, Xander Parish and Matthew Ball, magnificently lifted the words of the page and brought the script to life.
