The Mozart drama Interlude In Prague, a British film from helmer John Stephenson and scripters Brian Ashby and Helen Clare Cromarty. Clark will play Zuzana Luptakova, an 18-year-old soprano who begins a passionate affair with Mozart (Aneurin Barnard) but is forced to marry another man. James Purefoy and Samantha Barks also star in the film, which is set the eponymous city in 1787 and follows a few turbulent months in Mozart’s life that influenced the creation of Don Giovanni. Productive International is producing with principal photography to start in April 2016 in Prague, Czech Republic.

Aneurin Barnard, whose credits include “The White Queen” and “War & Peace,” plays the composer at a time when has been brought to Prague by the vain and self-obsessed Baron Saloka. The evil aristocrat is played by Purefoy ( The Following, Roots ).

Rising star Morfydd Clark plays the beautiful soprano Zuzana Luptakova, who is betrothed to Saloka but falls in love with Mozart. Saloka, a psychopath, sexual predator and serial rapist, develops an overwhelming hatred that results in callous brutality and murder. Samantha Barks, whose credits include “Les Miserables,” is Josefa.

“A love story and a tragedy of epic proportions, the characters, the passions, heartbreak and awful outcome could just as easily exist in a contemporary story. I intend to shoot this with fast-moving camera and use modern post-production techniques to capture the energy and atmosphere of a modern thriller. The result will be a glorious heart-in-mouth solar plexus knockout.” At the start of the shoot, director John Stephenson said.

London-based Carnaby Intl. is handling worldwide sales rights for the film, and will be taking it to market at 2016 Cannes Film Festival.
