on a lighter note...

This may be the best rumor I've heard in months, coming out of a Q&A session at a convention this weekend. James Marsters says he is filming "Venetian Heat" (not yet in the IMDB), in September, based on the play of the same title. Also in the movie... Sean Bean and Derek Jacobi.

http://www.torchlighttheatre.co.uk/venheat.htm would tell you about the play, but it's down. From the google cache of the page:

ITALY, SEPTEMBER 1943 - The country is in a shambles. The Fascists have surrendered and Nazi Germany is invading. On an isolated farm, a married couple hide two army deserters in their cellar. In the kitchen they eat, drink wine, play cards and allow passion to take control. In one of the hottest summers Italy has seen this century, hidden desires are revealed as Adriano's marriage to Caterina breaks down and he falls in love with the deserter, Franco.
Based on a true story, this is a provocative play about wartorn love that is as stifling as that famed VENETIAN HEAT.


Further down the page it becomes clear that each of the married couple falls for one of the deserters.

I simply must know how this is cast. Likeliest to me seems Jacobi as the husband, Bean and Marsters as the two deserters (Marsters the younger, prettier one who the wife falls for).

But however it's cast I
am
SO
there.

Hello,

I hope I'm not intruding here? i don't have one of these live journal thingies and I'm not sure of the rules. I just thought you might like to know a few details I picked up about the upcoming film you mentioned staring JM. He stated in an official UPI interview that he is going to be playing the husband and I read somewhere else that Derek Jacobi plays the older man who seduces JM's character ;o) I was kinda hoping for Sean Bean to be playing that part, but I think he's going to be the other guy who pairs of with the wife. JM apparently asked his agent if he'd have to kiss a guy, he agent said yes, and then JM read the script and realised that there was a whole lot more than kissing involved! And he was a bit 'oh, boy' so he put the script aside for a while until he'd got his head together, but he says that he's looking forward to starting work on it now. I'm looking forward to seeing it no matter who plays what! Es ;o)

Got here through random surfing and happened to notice...I read elsewhere a while back that JM said in interview that he is playing the husband who falls for one of the soldiers.

This is where I picked it up from.

*shrug* Should be interesting :)

Venetian Heat

I heard James Marsters say that he was going to play a gay man. So I'm thinking that he's the husband, here's why.....
This is the cast that I got:
ADRIANO - James Marsters
FRANCO - Patrick Dempsey
DON GIORGIO - Derek Jacobi
SCHNEIDER - Sean Bean
FABIANI - Franco Nero
MARIO - Rupert Evans

Venetian Heat

By now you know that James plays the husband who falls for one of the deserters --played by the very cute Patrick Dempsey. I think it will be a challenging role for him, and I know he's looking forward to it.
