Pacino Brings Salome To Big Screen


Al Pacino Oscar Wilde Barry Navidi

Al Pacino will combine his love of theatre and film once again with SOLOMAYBE?, a feature film in the same vein as his 1996 documentary LOOKING FOR RICHARD. The movie will interweave behind-the-scenes footage from the current Los Angeles staging of Oscar Wilde's SALOME, along with fictional elements. Pacino will direct the film, as well as appear on camera. He plays KING HEROD in the biblically inspired tragicomedy, which debuted last week (ends14APR06) at the Wadsworth Theatre in Los Angeles. According to the movie's producer Barry Navidi, "Al is interested in the process that actors go through and what we go though as film-makers. Navidi insists the film will be completed this year (06), adding, "It took Al four years to finish Looking for Richard, but we will have Salomaybe? finished this year (06) and delivered next year (07) at one of the major festivals."

He hobbles, the crispness of his movements isn't there, and the mixture of luck and confidence he once had is just a pleasant memory. More often than not, you just hope he just doesn't stumble. You just want a glimmer of what once was.

Hollywood legend Al Pacino is gearing up for another career defining role after signing to play NAPOLEON BONAPARTE in a forthcoming biopic of the French emperor.

After striking up a successful working relationship with producer Barry Navidi and director Michael Radford on last year's (04) The Merchant Of Venice, Pacino was keen to work with the team again for the Napoleon film.

Oscar-winner Pacino, 65, has been waiting seven years to play the diminutive Frenchman and only agreed to step into the 19th century role when he found the right film-makers.
