Charlotte Rampling - H 2016

The Oscar nominee joins Josh Hartnett and John Rhys-Davies in Lech Majewski's fantasy sci-fi, which is being sold by Fortissimo.

Charlotte Rampling's bumper year continues.

With one new European Film Market project already in the bag (the Jane Austen adaptation Sanditon) and a best actress Oscar nomination for 45 Years (for which she won the Golden Bear at last year's Berlinale), the British actress has scored herself another high-profile feature.

Announced Saturday, the actress will star alongside Josh Hartnett and John Rhys-Davies in Lech Majewski's Valley of the Gods, a sci-fi fantasy following the narratives of three characters attempting to escape the inevitable drama about to unfold when supernatural visions clash with impending reality.

Principal photography is set to commence in May, with additional castmembers expected to be announced.

The film is being produced by Royal Road Entertainment’s (Blue Blood) Filip Jan Rymsza and Carla Rosen-Vacher and the Safran Company’s (Annabelle, The Conjuring) Peter Safran and Angelus Silesius.

Fortissimo Films holds international rights and is pre-selling the film at the European Film Market.
