The former director of the Royal Shakespeare Company, Adrian Noble, has been officially announced as the director on DANNY LA RUE – the upcoming original screenplay about the popular performer’s life.
The film is written by Martyn Hesford who wrote the BAFTA-nominated Kenneth Williams biopic FANTABULOSA! starring Micheal Sheen. DANNY LA RUE is produced by Blacklisted Films in conjunction with the BFI.
“What drew me to the project was Martyn’s brilliant and funny screenplay which tells two unexpected love stories in an unexpected way.”
Noble recently directed Kate Bush’s tour – BEFORE THE DAWN – to critical acclaim and has been nominated for over 20 Olivier Awards.
The film is currently in development.
