”So much about this feels like a dream.”
re: The Happy Prince. The financing for the joint U.K., France, Germany, Belgium, and Italy production fell apart. They certainly had a very strong cast lined up: Colin Firth, Emily Watson, and Tom Wilkinson in addition to Hugh and Rupert Everett. In a May 2016 NY Times interview Everett (he was starring in The Judas Kiss, David Hare's play about Oscar Wilde, at that time) said the movie was finally greenlit in March. If it's a go, then casting will have to start from scratch.
