Jamie Dornan to Star in Updated ‘Carmen’ Musical for Sony Classics
Jamie Dornan is set to star in “Carmen,” a reimagining of the classic French opera in a musical film that has already been acquired by Sony Pictures Classics, an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.

Dornan will star alongside Mexican actress Melissa Barrera in a film that will be the directorial debut of Benjamin Millepiedm the French choreographer and dancer behind “Black Swan.” Dimitri Rassam will produce, and the film is scheduled to begin production in October in Los Angeles.

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Nilo Cruz is writing the shooting draft of the screenplay for “Carmen,” and Nicholas Britell, an Oscar nominee for “Moonlight” and “If Beale Street Could Talk,” will write the score. He’ll also write several original songs for the film along with singer-songwriter Julieta Venegas.
