Biopic makes priest see red

Coming soon to a theater near you: "Antonio Vivaldi--The Movie!" Yes, somebody (Boris Damast), has decided to make a movie about the life of Antonio Vivaldi, and they hope it will be as big or bigger than Milos Forman's hit Amadeus.

With Joseph Fiennes (Shakespeare in Love) playing the Red Priest of Venice, and starring with Gerard Depardieu, Jacqueline Bisset and Malcom McDowell, they might have a pretty good cast, at least.

More about the story in Sunday's London Observer.
