t.A.T.u. is back! April 12, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in Music.

The most popular Russian singing duo of all time is back to claim new victories, film ones. Maybe.

Two young Russians, Lena Katina and Yulia Volkova have decided to warm their media soup once again, just in case. Of course it was not really their idea, but the idea of their media parents, Russian production experts with Ivan Shapovalov leading them. Apart from constantly working on a new release similar to “Best of”, for the past few months they have been preparing something totally different. Film.

Filming will start in the middle of May, and the director is already known. The lucky one is Roland Joffe. Yes, it is the same Roland Joffe that did “The Killing Fields”. A thin line seperates that above and that underneath. Now for the additions to the news: the scriptwriter is Alexei Mitrofanov. A member of parliament in the Russian Duma, a popular member of the liberal scene and the creator of the recent film “Yuliya”. The erotic tales from 2005 which the informed can see that the main characters are reminiscent of the premier of the Ukraine Yuliya Tymoshenko and the president of Grozny Mikhail Saakashvilij.

What will the film be about, it is already clear, a real hit? The t.A.T.u. pair will act themselves, just another day in the office for Lena and Yulia, and two other actresses that have yet to be named, will be responsible for the Mitrofanov’s script. The name of the project? Probably “t.A.T.u. Come Back”, just like the proposed script. The author is the clearly the always busy Duma parliamentarian. A sentence about the content for the end: Lesbian prison drama.
