Both Jessica Biel and Luke Evans are currently in final negotiations with producer Raffaella De Laurentiis to star in the upcoming romance Vivaldi. THR is reporting that the film is being directed by Patricia Riggen (Under the Same Moon) , and is being written by Kevin Lund and T.J. Scott. The movie will center “on a forbidden romance that develops between composer, priest and violin virtuoso Antonio Vivaldi and his protege, singer Anna Tessieri Giro, leading him to write his enduring masterpiece ‘The Four Seasons'”.
Jessica Biel’s last work was in the recent ensemble cast romantic comedy Valentine’s Day, and will star along side Bradley Cooper in this summers The A-Team. Luke Evans is still a relatively unknown British actor who was featured in Clash of the Titans and will reprise his inner Greek god in the upcoming film Immortals. Vivaldi will likely be selling at the Festival de Cannes.
