Freeman To Play Rembrandt In Greenaway Biopic

THE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY star MARTIN FREEMAN will play Dutch master artist REMBRANDT in director PETER GREENAWAY's new biopic NIGHTWATCHING. The quirky Brit won the coveted role after impressing revered film-maker Greenaway at his audition. The film will focus on the painter's private life and the creation of his most famous piece, THE NIGHTWATCH. MINNIE DRIVER and SARAH POLLEY will also star in the biopic, which will be shot in the Netherlands, Poland and Wales later this year (06). It will be released to coincide with this year's (06) celebrations of Rembrandt's life, marking the 400th anniversary of his birth.
