Substantial French actor Gerard Depardieu has landed a role as a wealthy nobleman in "Vivaldi."


No doubt adding more hype to "Vivaldi", renowned French actor Gerard Depardieu is reported to have smoothly joined the cast of the biopic project, which is going to be developed under indie company Mechaniks.

Coming onboard alongside Joseph Fiennes, Jacqueline Bisset, and Zuleikha Robinson among others, Depardieu will be billed to play a wealthy nobleman described as a "wolf in sheep's clothing." Meanwhile, Fiennes has already been plotted to portray the titular character, best known for his composition "The Four Seasons."

Presenting Boris Damast at helm with journalist Steven Freedman penning the script, pic depicts the life of the composer as a young priest assigned to teach music to the abandoned, illegitimate daughters of Venice's courtesans. Through his bond with the girls, he later delightfully manages to land a concert of his own music before the pope.
