SALOME Inspires New Film from Atom EgoyanBy COC StaffPosted in 22/23 Season
Amanda Seyfried (The Dropout, Mank, Les Misérables) is set to star in Seven Veils, a new feature film from acclaimed filmmaker Atom Egoyan (Chloe, The Sweet Hereafter, Remember) and Rhombus Media.
Seyfried plays Jeanine, an earnest theatre director, who has been given the daunting task of remounting her former mentor’s most famous work, the opera Salome. Filming is set to begin next week in Toronto.
“I first produced Salome for the Canadian Opera Company almost thirty years ago and have been haunted by its themes,” says Egoyan. “This is a project I’ve been dreaming about for years and it’s such a thrill to be reunited with Amanda after the amazing experience we had together making Chloe."
See the production that inspired Atom Egoyan’s latest feature film before it’s gone—Salome is only on stage until February 24!

Seven Veils is a Rhombus Media and Ego Film Arts production, produced with the participation of Telefilm Canada in association with Cinetic Media, IPR.VC, XYZ Films, and the Canadian Opera Company.
