MAJOR VELOCITY AT WIND DANCER PIX

Matt Williams’ Wind Dancer Prods. – which just started a feature division this fall, headed by Susan Cartsonis – has already begun production on its first feature. “Firelight” marks the directorial debut of William Nicholson, the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of “Shadowlands,” “Nell” and “First Knight.” The film was written by Nicholson for Fox, where it was developed by Cartsonis. When it stalled after her exit, she brought it into the Disney fold, where Joe Roth, who was once Cartsonis’ boss at Fox, greenlit it immediately.

Nicholson started work last week in Pinewood Studios in London for Hollywood Pictures, with French actress Sophie Marceau (“Braveheart”), Stephen Dillane and Kevin Anderson starring. The film is a romantic story about a love affair between a Swiss governess and an English gentleman that changes their lives. Wind Dancer will produce with London-based Carnival Films, whose Brian Eastman produced “Shadowlands.” Marceau, by the way, has become aligned with Icon Prods.’ “Anna Karenina.”
