O'Toole To Star In New Lassie Movie

PETER O'TOOLE and SAMANTHA MORTON have signed up to star in a new LASSIE movie when filming gets underway later this month (MAY05).

The legendary canine character has enjoyed a long break away from the silver screen since 1994's eponymously titled movie.

British director CHARLES STURRIDGE has written a screenplay based on ERIC KNIGHT's classic 1938 novel LASSIE COME HOME - which was also the basis for Lassie's 1943 film debut, which starred DAME ELIZABETH TAYLOR.

Other confirmed cast members include JEMMA REDGRAVE, JOHN LYNCH and Scottish TV funnyman GREGOR FISHER, famed for his verbally-challenged alter ego RAB C NESBITT.
