Vanessa Redgrave Joins Annette Bening’s ‘Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool’

Vanessa Redgrave has joined Annette Bening, Jamie Bell and Julie Walters in the romantic drama “Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool” for James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli and Colin Vaines.

Shooting is starting this week in Liverpool with Paul McGuigan (“Sherlock”) directing from a script by Matt Greenhalgh (“Control”). The production will take place at Pinewood Studios and on location in London and Liverpool.

The movie is based on British actor Peter Turner’s memoir, and follows the passionate relationship between Turner and eccentric Academy Award-winning actress Gloria Grahame. What starts as a vibrant affair between a legendary femme fatale and her young lover grows into a deeper love. Grahame won an Oscar for her performance in “The Bad and the Beautiful.”

The book focuses on Graham turning to Turner for support when she reached the terminal stage of stomach cancer in 1981.

IM Global is co-financing the film and launched sales last month at the Cannes Film Festival. Lionsgate will release the pic next year in the U.K.

Kenneth Cranham, Frances Barber and Leanne Best are also starring.

Redgrave has appeared in more than 80 films and received six Oscar nominations. She had roles in “The Butler,” “Foxcatcher” and the ABC series “Black Box.”
