Oscar winner Bier switches gears with Brosnan
Saturday 05 March 2011
The next project for Danish director Susanne Bier, who won the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar for
In a Better World, is a romantic comedy,
All You Need Is Love, starring Pierce Brosnan.
Bier's Oscar-winning drama focused on youth violence. Her film Brodre was adapted in English as Brothers, a war drama starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Tobey Maguire and Natalie Portman. Also, she filmed Things We Lost in the Fire, her English-language debut about a broken family.
Bier told Italian newspaper La Repubblica, "It's a tender story with a much lighter atmosphere than my previous works; enough with conflicts."
Brosnan called the new project a "delightful love story" mixing the serious and humorous. She wrote the screenplay with Brosnan in mind for the lead role, though the story centers on a Danish family. His next project is the religion-themed comedy Salvation Boulevard.
All You Need is Love begins production in Amalfi in spring.
