Bening, Lohan and Bean of Importance
May 20, 2006

Annette Bening, Lindsay Lohan and Sean Bean will star in the big screen adaptation of Oscar Wilde's A Woman of No Importance, helmed by Janusz Kaminski, reports Variety.

Myriad Pictures is producing with Donald Zuckerman, Sarah Radclyffe and Howard Himelstein. A fall start date is planned.

Himelstein (A Good Woman) is adapting the screenplay from Wilde's tale about an ambitious young man, Gerald Arbuthnot, who introduces his prospective employer, Lord Illingworth, to his mother. But she realizes that Illingworth is the man who jilted her long ago and is Gerald's father.

Cannes Casting News: Tenderness, Colossus, Woman of No Importance



Cannes Casting News: Tenderness, Colossus, Woman of No Importance
Posted May 21st 2006 6:09PM by

Oscar Wilde is coming back to the big screen, this time in the hands of Janusz Kaminski, who is directing an adaptation of A Woman of No Importance. Set to begin filming this fall, the movie is about "an ambitious young man, Gerald Arbuthnot, who introduces his prospective employer, Lord Illingworth, to his mother." Because this is Wilde, it turns out the man has a bit of a history with the mother, and in fact is Gerald's dad. Oops. Set to star in the film are Annette Bening, the ubiquitous Lindsay Lohan and the under-appreciated Sean Bean. Thank the lord someone is letting Bean do something funny -- he's been sporting a macho glower for, like, two decades.
