Ian Bonhôte to Direct 'Faithfull'

Ian Bonhôte, a double BAFTA nominee for the feature documentary “McQueen,” will direct the upcoming film “Faithfull” about the singer-songwriter, Marianne Faithfull. 

The Bohemian Rhapsody actress Lucy Boynton will star as Marianne Faithfull in the film. It is about the iconic singer-songwriter who recorded 21 albums which include the acclaimed Broken English and Negative Capability. 

The film is set in London in the mid-1960s and will cover her roller-coaster journey from her initial stardom, her time as a homeless drug addict in London, and then her subsequent recovery. 

Bonhôte said: “Marianne is an extraordinary woman who rebelled against the male-dominated music industry. The film will explore female-issues as well as the injustices she suffered in her quest to be recognized as an artist.” I’m honored to collaborate with Lucy and Julia to shine a light on Marianne’s timeless story.”

Bonhôte further added, “I am delighted that my story is finally being made with my dream team of Lucy, Julia, and Ian.

”UK outfit Altitude has acquired the worldwide sales rights of the film. The producers are Julia Taylor-Stanley of Artemis Films, whose track record includes the documentary “Ferrari – Race to Immortality,” “Coriolanus” and “The Tempest,” and Colin Vaines of Synchronistic Pictures, a producer on “Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool” and “Coriolanus.” Boynton will also serve as an executive producer alongside Julian Bird and Abi Gadsby from Lorton Entertainment. 

The search is underway to fill the role of Jagger and Casting director Sarah Crowe has been brought on board.
