Passage Pictures has come on board to produce Ethan Hawke’s adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ 1953 play Camino Real, with Juliette Binoche attached to play a lead role.
Hawke adapted the screenplay with writer-composer Shelby Gaines, and starred in the play on stage at Williamstown Theater Festival. Camino Real takes place in a quasi-nihilistic, surreal isolated town in a tropical climate where the characters confront their existence amid a sensual, dream-like narrative of love and burlesque dancing.
Production is scheduled to begin in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, in 2020. Passage Pictures CEO Uri Singer
