BERLIN: Bow Films Taps Frank Dillane To Topline Jarvis’ ‘Maestro’

Frank Dillane (“Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince”) is set to topline Catherine Jarvis’ “Maestro,” based on Peter Goldsworthy’s eponymous novel.

Daniel Harvey and Bow Street Films partners Joe Jenckes and David Dickson are producing.

“Maestro” turns on Paul, a talented pianist (Dillane), who moves to an exotic outpost of 1960’s Northern Australia and is forced to learn from the only piano teacher his father can find – the enigmatic Herr Keller, a Viennese refugee with a shadowed past, known to the locals as ‘Maestro.’

“We were immediately inspired by the universal themes brought to life in Catherine’s screenplay, particularly how she frames the story within this very powerful music,” said Bow Street Films’ Joe Jenckes and David Dickson. “Frank’s amazing talent and screen presence coupled with Lang Lang’s unparalleled skill as a pianist will appeal to audiences worldwide.”

The pic’s original score will feature Craig Leon’s music alongside recordings by Chinese pianist Lang Lang, whose work was highlighted during the Beijing 2008 Olympics.  Deutsche Grammophon/Universal will release the soundtrack internationally. Pic will begin lensing in Spring 2014 in Northern Australia and Vienna, Austria.

Dillane, who was recently cast in writer/director Gerardo Naranjo’s untitled new drama alongside Dakota Fanning, is repped by Michelle Braidman of Braidman Associates and WME.

Casting is underway for the role of ‘Maestro.’

Bow Street Films’ recent credits include J.C. Chandor’s “Margin Call,”  and  Daniel Radcliffe starrer “Kill Your Darlings.”
