A previously unknown Bergman script is set to be produced
An unknown script written by Ingmar Bergman has recently surfaced, and now it is going to be turned into a movie.
The script was due to be a collaboration between him, Italy’s Federico Fellini and Japan’s Akira Kurosawa, and now it’s going to be a movie directed by Swedish director Suzanne Osten, as reported by Swedish paper Dagens Nyheter.
The script, titled ‘Sixty-four minutes with Rebecka’, was written in 1969 but the collaboration fell through. The script was unknown until the early 2000s when Bergman donated his collection to a foundation set up to preserve and honour his work.
The script will premiere as a radio play on Nov. 6 before being filmed. The movie premiere is planned for 2018, 100 years after Bergman’s birth, Dagens Nyheter wrote.
