Van Damme in "Swan Lake" film musical?

Van Damme in "Swan Lake" film musical?

Jean Claude Van Damme in flesh-coloured tights prancing across stage? God help every one of us. And god help English National Ballet’s MD Christopher Nourfe who says Van Damme is one of the people he is looking at to play Von Rothbart in a film version of "Swan Lake".

According to The Guardian, Ewan McGregor is also being considered for the role of Von Rothbart.

Impresario Jonathan Shalit, who is behind the film, said: ‘For Swan Lake I have been thinking of: Von Rothbart – Jean-Claude Van Damme or Ewan MacGregor; The Prince’s Mother – Dame Judi Dench, Angela Lansbury, Glenn Close, Jane Seymour. As director, l have in mind the likes of Stephen Daldry, Sam Mendes or Nicholas Hynter.’

"The film will make use of dazzling film effects already familiar to the millions who have been captivated by the Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings blockbusters. Filming is due to start next spring and the movie is expected to be screened later next year.", says the report.

Thanks to Coming Soon
