Greetings One and All,

I am currently making a picture called Heaven and Earth which is shooting entirely on location in South Africa. Heaven and Earth is the true story of James Miranda Barry (portrayed by Natasha McElhone) who was appointed Army Surgeon at Cape Colony and rose through the ranks to eventually become Surgeon General of the British Army. Only when the undertaker was laying out the body of the distinguished physician was a startling discovery made - Dr. James Barry was in fact a woman.

This spring, I will be working with Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Roman Polanski, who is set to direct and produce his first contemporary thriller in more than twenty years. The Ghost, based on the book of the same name by best-selling author Robert Harris, details the story of a former British Prime Minister and his anonymous ghostwriter who is drawn into a political and sexual conspiracy. The talented cast includes Ewan McGregor, Tom Wilkinson, Kim Cattrall, Jim Belushi, Robert Pugh, and Olivia Williams.

Last summer my company Irish DreamTime produced an independent film starring Susan Sarandon, Carey Mulligan, Johnny Simmons and myself called The Greatest, which was well received at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival. First time writer/director Shana Feste’s richly evocative script results in a compelling drama that is both heartwarming and heartbreaking. The Hollywood Reporter asserts The Greatest “pulls off a stunning fete” and “…performances are daring and brilliantly shaded.” This summer Irish DreamTime along with Jersey Films and Revelations Entertainment will produce the classic children’s book The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle starring Morgan Freeman and yours truly. This fall, IDT will produce the long anticipated sequel to The Thomas Crown Affair. Lastly, it has been a tremendous joy to watch Mamma Mia make so many people happy. Not a day goes by without someone saying they have seen it, not once, but numerous times. You can now purchase
Mamma Mia on DVD.

Change is good! Be well... be happy... love and only love,
