"Twin Peaks" star Sherilyn Fenn has been roped in to play silent film star Alla Nazimova in "Silent Life," an indie biopic about Rudolph Valentino. Valentino was a Hollywood superstar in the silent movie era and died unexpectedly in 1926. Vladislav Kozlov is directing the film and will play Valentino, reported Variety.
Kozlov is producing the project with Natalia Dar under their Dreamer Pictures banner, along with Yuri Ponomarev. The script was written by Kozlov, Dar, and Ksenia Jarova. The film also features Isabella Rossellini as Valentino's mother, Franco Nero as Valentino's spirit, and Terry Moore as the mourning "Lady in Black".
Paul Rodriguez and Dalton Cyr have joined the cast as an older gigolo and young Italian immigrant, respectively. Paul Louis Harrell will play Norman Kerry, Valentino's real-life friend, and Ksenia Jarova will portray Natacha Rambova, a true love of Valentino. Filming is currently underway at Valentino's grave at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, Miceli's Restaurant in Hollywood, and the private Rudolph Valentino museum in North Hollywood.
