Academy Award® Winner Vanessa Redgrave and Golden Globe® Nominee Joely Richardson are headlining an all-star cast in the adaptation of Henry James’s novel The Aspern Papers.  Julien Landais is directing from an adaptation he wrote with Jean Pavans and Hannah Bhuiya.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers (“The Tudors”), Jon Kortajarena ( “Quantico”), Poppy Delevingne (Kingsman: The Golden Circle), Morgane Polanski (“Vikings,”), Alice Aufray (Un village presque parfait) and Barbara Meier (Schreie der Vergessenen) have joined Ms. Redgrave and Ms. Richardson on location.

Set in Venice in 1885, Morton Vint (Rhys Meyers), an ambiguous young writer and publisher fascinated by iconic romantic poet Jeffrey Aspern, strives to get his hands on the letters Aspern wrote to his beautiful mistress, Juliana Bordereau (Redgrave).

Now, decades later, Juliana lives in a Venetian palazzo with her niece (Richardson), whom she dominates and Morton tries to seduce. Production is currently underway on original location in Venice, Italy.

Gabriela Bacher is producing for Film House Germany’s Summerstorm Entertainment, alongside Julien Landais for Princeps Films. Executive Producers include James Ivory (who supported Landais through development), Charles S. Cohen of Cohen Media Group, Francois Sarkozy, Christian Angermayer, Klemens Hallmann and Charles-Henri de Lobkowicz. Bruno Wang serves as Co-Executive Producer. ARRI Media will be handling foreign sales.
