LDS Filmmaker LaBute Shooting New Film

DUBLIN, IRELAND -- LDS Filmmaker Neil LaBute's latest work, the film version of the A.S. Byatt book "Possession," is currently shooting on location in Yorkshire, England, and news reports reveal that the film has attracted actress Gwyneth Paltrow to the cast. LaBute, along with Laura Jones, adapted the Booker prize-winning novel for the big screen.

The plot for the film is not like the screenplays that LaBute has written himself, and is quite different from LaBute's current film, "Nurse Betty," which LaBute directed. "Nurse Betty" has received both critical acclaim and has done well at the box office.

"Possession" focuses on the relationship of two Victorian poets, and the modern-day romance that develops between two contemporary academics when they study the poets. The film began shooting the first week of September and should be finished by year end.

In addition to Paltrow, who has become almost a household name in the past year or two, the film will star Aaron Eckhart (who has appeared in every LaBute work so far), Jeremy Northam, Jennifer Ehle, Toby Stephens, Anna Massey, Graham Crowden, Trevor Eve and Tom Hollander.
