Found out some interesting movie gossip while out at the Brits in Switzerland. Spencer Claridge is one of the head guys at Soulsports, the organisers of the Brits. However he wasn’t here for a couple of days as he was in Austria shooting a new movie. He and television presenter/team manager Christian Stevenson were shooting a new film called The Chalet Girl. It’s based on a book by Kate Lace of the same name which is loosely based on the story of Cinderella.
Here’s the blurb on the book:
The ski season – a glamorous world of snowy pistes, gorgeous ski instructors and glittering apres-ski nightlife. What’s not to love?
Quite a lot, thinks Millie Braythorpe. Four months of endless bed-making and cooking for guests have taken their toll, and the only thing she really looks forward to is her nightly gig singing in a little French bar. Then handsome troublemaker Luke comes to stay at her chalet, and before she knows it Millie is head over heels in love.
But is Luke to be trusted, or is her Alpine romance destined to end in heartbreak?
The film stars British actor Bill Nighy, Ed Westwick (the gorgeous Chuck Bass from Gossip Girl), Christine Baranski (who was one of Meryl Streep’s friends in Mamma Mia!), Felicity Jones (who also stars in the new Ricky Gervais movie Cemetery Junction) and snowboarding legend Tara Dakides is in there too!
I don’t have any info on a release date but as soon as I get more info, I’ll let you know.
