Even Cannes looks short on ideas. Most of the projects to be born out of the festival have so far been adaptations. Eesh. The same goes for Catalonia, the bigscreen adaptation of George Orwell's book that will feature both Colin Firth and Kevin Spacey.

Colin Firth, Kevin Spacey for Catalonia

To be directed by Hugh Hudson off a script by Bob Ellis, Catalonia revolves around the real-life story of how Orwell and his wife Eileen traveled to Barcelona to fight Stalinism. There, the author joined the Anarchist brigade and fought in the Spanish Civil War. Film will highlight the relationship between Orwell and Georges Kopp, the charismatic commander of the brigade.

The film is expected to enter production during the first half of 2010. I hope Firth and Spacey like traveling, as filming locations include England, Spain and then Buenos Aires, Montevideo and Uruguay.
