Variety reports that Sir Christopher Lee has signed up for a role in the drama "Night Train to Lisbon", based on the philosophical novel by  Pascal Mercier and directed by Bille August.  The story centers around a retired Swiss professor who goes on a lifechanging journey to find an author who inspired him to leave his boring life behind him. 

The formidable cast includes Bruno Ganz, Vanessa Redgrave, Melanie Laurent, Lena Olin, Lee's "Boogie Woogie"-Co-Star Jack Huston and Jeremy Irons.

Pre-production starts in november, filming is scheduled to begin in March 2012.

About time

About time some new projects were announced! I hope this one gets done, and well-done. Christopher Lee deserves to be involved in as many projects as possible. Does he get a lot of offers? Does he turn down some? Things seem to have slowed down a little, but I wish he got involved in new films of any genre - horror welcome of course!
