Washington: American actress Sherilyn Fenn is all set to star in an indie biopic about Italian star Rudolph Valentino.
The ‘Twin Peaks’ star will portray the role of silent film actress Alla Nazimova of Russia, confirmed Variety.
Directed by Vladislav Kozlov, the filmmaker will also play the lead role of Valentino. The script is written by Kozlov, Natalia Dar and Ksenia Jarova.
The movie stars Isabella Rossellini as Valentino’s mother, Terry Moore as the mourning ‘Lady in Black’ and Franco Nero as Valentino’s spirit.
While Paul Louis Harrell will play the role of Valentino’s real-life friend Norman Kerry, Ksenia Jarova will feature as Natacha Rambova, a true love of Valentino. Paul Rodriguez and Dalton Cyr will also play roles in the movie as an older gigolo and a young Italian immigrant, respectively.
Rudolph Valentino was an early pop icon in America who starred in several silent films including ‘The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse’, ‘The Sheik, Blood and Sand, The Eagle’, and ‘The Son of the Sheik’. His premature death at the age of 31 caused mass hysteria among his fans.
