After a series of successful films about musicians Ron Howard in the company Nigena Sinclair are reunited once again – this time for a film about Luciano Pavarotti.
After a successful collaboration in the film about the Beatles – “The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years” – producer Nigel Sinclair and Director Ron Howard reunited for the project, closely associated with music. Largely due to the fact that film of the Beatles looked even more advantageous from rare archival footage, the creators of the biopic about Luciano Pavarotti will have full access to the family archives of the singer, interviews, and little-known musical materials. The film will be shot in collaboration with partner Universal Music Group Polygram Entertainment. Studiocanal will Finance and control the international sales with White Horse Pictures. The film release will be next year. As noted by the Director of the future project, “the story of Pavarotti still is not sufficiently lit, especially in the US, although there is no shortage of resources”. Pavarotti died in 2007 at the age of 71.
“He experienced the devastating effects of the Second world war, the son of a local Baker, and women rolling cigars in the factory Northern Italy. He had a beautiful voice and dreams of performance,” said Howard. “Stepped into the third decade without being some child Prodigy – appearing, slowly but surely, and got a confession, supporting it with some athleticism. I don’t think most of us understand what to do to sing and perform at the same level as Luciano. He did not much care about the money, but used his fame to help those in need and to expand the scope of Opera. He took an unprecedented step in the performance of music from the greatest pop stars of his era. It was so inconsistent between Opera purists, almost no one dared to take this step. But he took the risk, because it was important for him”.
