"Hugh Jackman, Rachel Weisz and Robert Pattinson are lining up to star in romantic epic Unbound Captives which is being sold here by Ashok Amritraj’s Hyde Park International.
Madeleine Stowe makes her feature directorial debut and the project is styled as being in the vein of The Last Of The Mohicans, the 1995 hit in which she appeared opposite Daniel Day Lewis.
Hyde Park Entertainment is producing alongside Gil Netter (Marley & Me) and Grant Hill (The Matrix). John Toll serves as cinematographer.
Endeavor Independent’s Graham Taylor packaged the project and is handling North American rights.
Madeline supposedly wrote this script with herself in mind. When it's hard to find good parts to play, Madeline took it upon herself to make a role she wanted to play. She has had this script for years and has been waiting to find someone to make it. She has been offered 5 million of the script but the studio that offered that didn't want Madeline in it. Mrs. Stowe took a pass on what is a very large amount of money for a script. Melissa Rosenburg would have bleeped in her pants for that. Now Madeline is directing it to boot. Way to go Madeline. Never give up on some thing you love.
I loved Last of the Mochicans and hope this is a part two so to speak...
