Black Swan film to be made at the RTE Studios
BLACK SWAN (A1910) – The latest in a string of critically acclaimed independent film releases from this country.
The first of this series is an adaptation of the novel by James Tiptree, which is being made into a movie.
The title Black Swans novel, written by Stephen King, tells of a group of young black men who live in a gated community.
The novel is about a young boy (Bryce Dallas Howard) who is the sole member of his community to be the victim of racial prejudice and abuse.
The film will also be a collaboration between the film and the RTA Studios, the film’s production company.
The story of Black Swan will be told in a novel that is a collaboration with RTE Films, who have produced the Oscar-winning film The Book of Henry.
The script will be produced by Jodie Foster and Richard Jenkins, with the film team from RTE and the film company BFI.
The screenplay was written by King and will be directed by Tiptrees son, Peter King, with a script by Stephen Krasinski and music by Brian Eno.
The project was announced by RTE chief executive Richard Parsons at the Cannes Film Festival last week.
The Black Swan book, written in 1903 by Charles Dickens, was one of the most popular books in English literature in the 20th century.
In 2016, the RTS studios announced a collaboration for a film, The Black Swan.
Black Swan was one the first films made with the new RTE Cinematic Television (CTV) format, which allows for independent films to be screened on the television screen.
The RTS Studios, which also produced the BBC2 series Blackadder and the BBC Two series The Black List, are in the midst of a revamp of its production team.
The two-part Black Swan series will be made into two films, each to be released in 2018 and 2019.
The new films will focus on a different aspect of Black swan’s life in his early years, with Black Swan’s childhood friend, Thomas Henry (Richard Jenkins), the central character in the book, as well as his relationship with his uncle, Mr Thomas (Peter King), and his family.
The production team has also enlisted the talents of a number of acclaimed actors including Rufus Hound, Stephen Fry, Helen Mirren and Catherine Tate, among others.
The series will star King, Rhett Reese, Rosamund Pike and Tom Wilkinson.
