Daniel Craig has his hopes set on a new project, but with a cost - his eyes. Jose Saramago's novel is to be made into a powerful drama, and it is to star James Bond leading man, Daniel Craig.
The novel which had won the Nobel Prize for Literature is also to star Julianne Moore in a film that it is moving and yet, monstrous leap away from the glam action, James Bond.
A heavy drama, it cascades into a deep and thought provoking theme of social and personal decline.
Taking the ethics of how such a crippling loss is dealt with on a community scale within a city, it is bound to touch on an essential awareness of a disability which we know very little about.
Within this life, it follows a emotional journey through a dark idea of blindness creeping through a society as an epidemic.
From the extraordinary Fernando Meirelles who gave us the intense, 'The Constant Gardener,' which, in itself probed at the primary levels of human reaction, we found ourselves being focused on in this new film. An international film, which is yet to be granted it's US deal.
Daniel Craig hasn't stopped to take a breath since the Bond success, drawing himself into such work as 'The Golden Compass' and 'The Invasion.'
