Kathy Bates, Dustin Hoffman and Alfred Molina are set to star in The Red Violin director Francois Girard’s new film, Boychoir, says a story today at The Hollywood Reporter.
The original screenplay arrives from Source Code scribe Ben Ripley and follows a choirmaster and his relationship with a troubled 11-year old who is sent to the school that he runs alongside Bates and Molina’s characters, the headmistress and a teacher, respectively.
The role of the boy, a central character to the production, has not yet been cast.
Boychoir is produced by Carol Baum, Judy Cairo and Jane Goldernring of Informant Media. Executive producers include Eric Brenner, Ben Ripley and Michael A. Simpson.
