Both successfully establishing solid reputation in Hollywood, Willem Dafoe and Harvey Keitel have been brought together to star in "The Dust of Time", an English-language debut from Greek filmmaker Theo Angelopoulos.

Project was unveiled by Angelopoulos on Monday, June 18 in Cologne, Germany where he spoke at a panel at Filmstiftung North Rhine-Westphalia's annual International Film Congress. Plot details still remain a mystery, but it is revealed that filming will begin this October in Russia for a 2008 release with Bruno Ganz and Valeria Golino also starring.

In addition, it is reported that Filmstiftung has put around $1 million fund to support the development on the movie. The German funding organization is said to have allocated some $5 million for the production and pre-production of several upcoming film features, the largest sum, $1.5 million, being awarded to British-German-Austrian co-production "Desert Flower" directed by Sherry Hormann.
