Books at Berlinale success
The film rights of Jolien Janzing’s historical novel about Charlotte Brontë’s secret love in Brussels, Charlotte Brontë’s Secret Love (previous The Master), have been sold to the UK producer David Kelly by the Dutch publishing house AP/AWB. The Master was pitched at Books at Berlinale during the festival’s Co-Production Market in 2013. Kelly’s most recent production, Vera Glagoleva’s Russian-language costume drama Two Women, starring Ralph Fiennes and Sylvie Testud opposite a largely Russian cast, was shown last week at the Trieste Film Festival.
