Tale of Tales Consort News April 24, 2015 news From the director of GOMMORRAH and the DP of THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK and DEAD RINGERS, based on stories by the original writer of CINDERELLA, SNOW WHITE, and SLEEPING BEAUTY, and starring John C. Reilly, Salma Hayek, Vincent Cassel, Toby Jones, and Shirley Henderson. Loosely based on the collection of fairy tales by 17th century Italian poet Giambattista Basile, “The Tale of Tales” will showcase a fantastical ambiance featuring characters portrayed by Salma Hayek, Vincent Cassel, John C. Reilly, Toby Jones, Stacy Martin, Alba Rohrwacher, and Massimo Ceccherini. Matteo Garrone “The stories we chose to work with are amazing because they are so modern, so contemporary. They comprise a yearning for youth and physical beauty, the suffering of a woman willing to do anything to have a child, generational conflict, the struggle for power,” We should hear more about THE TALE OF TALES when it premieres at Cannes next month, but for now, we have this lovely trailer to chew on while we wait to see/hear more.
