Tatu at Mosfilm studios
Time of publication: 16.05.2007 (17:49)
Setting up decorations for the new motion picture "Finding Tatu" is in a full swing at Film Stage 9 of the Mosfilm Cinema concern. Filming will begin very soon. The movie is based on a novel by A. Mitrofanov "Tatu Come Back".

The story will be interesting in the first place for young audience: the lead character Janie Sawyer - a cute American young girl of 16-17 years old. She's been living in Moscow for a year, where she didn't have friends. Because of her interest in group Tatu, she gets in touch through the chat with Lana Starkova - a native Russian teenager from a provincial town. The girls meet in Moscow for a Tatu gig and get involved in a row of incredible events. The backstage of the city night life with its glory and danger is waiting for them. It's a borderline of a fairytale and a nightmare where friendship and personal strength are put into serious tests. Despite of all conflicts, betrayal and disappointment, the girls find strength to give up fake values and discover new feelings and talents.

Sincerity, art and love will bring Janie and Lana to Tatu and then - to fulfilment of their own dreams of another and better life. The story has a bright happy end - a huge gig. As the film creators promise, the audience will be treated with bright and memorable characters and lots of music. Group Tatu prepared a few new songs for this movie not to mention that the singers will take part in the movie playing themselves.

RAMCO Movie Company is specialised in production of full length motion pictures for foreign market and operates on the Mosfilm studios basis. RAMCO invited Roland Joffe to direct this picture.

Found this on : http://www.mischa-b.com/ Smile
"As posted on the site over the last couple of days, Mischa has signed on to film a movie in Russia over the coming weeks. Unfortunately, details have been very scarce with nearly all news reports citing the project as "unknown" or "unnamed". Wikipedia however, is reporting that Mischa (along with Danielle Panabaker) has signed on for a project called Finding T.a.t.u. To learn more about the movie, visit the Yahoo! Movies page. We have no direct confirmation that is the role Mischa will be filming so for now consider this a rumour. Other random details regarding the film include that the movie apparently has a $12 million budget and shooting locations will include Moscow and Yaroslavl. Mischa was quoted as saying that she's been practicing a Russian accent, and one of the two lead characters in this film will be a Russian native so it stands to reason that if this is the role, Mischa will be playing the character of Lana."

In Moscow there will begin the shooting of a film upon a novel of the deputy Aleksej Mitrofanov

At the beginning of June the shootings of the full-length feature film "In Search Of Tatu" upon motives of the novel of the deputy of the Duma Aleksej Mitrofanov "t.A.T.u. come back" will begin in Moscow.

"Honestly, when Mitrofanov offered me the manuscript I was a bit sceptical about it, but nevertheless I read it, and I liked the theme" told the producer of the movie, Sergej Konov to RIA news. "The theme is rather hot, like any youth topic, and I knew, that you can make an interesting movie out of it, because in general music stories are interesting, both for the viewers and for the producers."

At the same time the producer explained, that this is not a film about the group t.A.T.u.

"T.A.T.u. are there in the background, they are in the picture, but the movie is not about them. The group t.A.T.u. write the exclusive sound-track for the film, and Yulya Volkova and Lena Katina will play themselves in the film. But in general this movie is about contemporary Moscow, contemporary Russia and about contemporary youth." told Konov.

In the focus of the plot is a 16 year old cute american, who lives already a year in Moscow, where she has no friends at all. Because of her passion for the group t.A.T.u. Janie gets to know Lana Starkova in a chat, a Russian of her age from a small town in the province. The girls meet in Moscow, to visit together a concert of the beloved group and find themselves dragged into a whirl of unbelievable events. They experience the 'sparkle' of night life with all it's brightness and dangers.

"We decided to change some things in the story, which were told in Mitrofanov's novel, and we changed one of the heroines to an American young girl, who found herself in Moscow as the fate wanted, and tell what happened to these two girls who get lost in this fairy wood and with each step move away into the thicket of this wood and they understand that everything will become more fearful and dangerous. But nevertheless they get out of this wood, escape all the clashes and scrapes with honour. And we have of course a happy end." said the producer.

"We especially try to use even some surrealistic moments in our tale, because in our view the contemporary Moscow, this city is very unusual, the reality appears here somehow different, not to say contorted. The vision of us, the Moscovites, the people, who live here is blurred, we don't realize that. It concerns everything: the social aspects, the architecture, the rather strange present, the relations of the people." thinks Konov.

Meanwhile the producer had difficulties to assign the film to a certain genre.

"To define the genre is very complicated, because this is no genre movie. It's no thriller, it's not really a melodram, no action film, no comedy. If you compare with something which has been shot in the past, it may be partly near the film "On the Needle" and may be the film, which came out at the beginning of the 70's and was called "Oh, Lucky Devil".", he told.

The preliminary budget of the film will make up 12 Mio. US dollars.

"But this is not a final figure, most likely it will rise up. The movie is very complicated, We have more than 30 sets, we shoot 90 percent of all the pictures in 'live' interior and nature, all our interiors require quite serious post-production, fitting out of the decoration.",explained Konov.

For this, as the producer noted, 30 percent of the film crew, beginning with the director-producer, are American and European specialists.

"People with excellent professional experience", he said and continues that "Moscow is an expensive city, the infrastructure is very expensive, therefore from that point much costs."

The famous british director and script-writer Roland Joffe ("The Killing Field", "The Mission", "Good Bye, Lover", "Vatel"), who finished recently the work on the scandalous "Captivity", will shoot the movie.

World-known actors will take part in the film, like Mischa Barton, Danielle Panabaker, on the Russian side - Igor' Desyatnikov, Olesya Sudzilovskjaya and others.

The shootings will be done in Moscow and Yaroslavl.

It's been said before (somewhere on this thread) that the movie will be in English and may also be dubbed in Russian.

The original Russian book is available in the official Tatu.ru shop, here:
http://shop.taty.ru/en/goods/view/?id=433
(Signed by Lena and Yulia!)

An English translation of some chapters was posted here:
http://www.alexeymitrofanov.ru/books_tatu01e.html

The Russian version can be found here:

Sakuya, once again thank you so much for posting the latest info! And thanks to Argos for the translation! This is getting more exciting all the time. Bigups

BARTON OBSESSED WITH RUSSIA

Actress MISCHA BARTON is becoming so obsessed with Russia while she prepares to film her next movie in the country, she's teaching herself how to speak the language. The O.C. star will be flying to St Petersburg next month (Jun07) to film the currently unnamed project, and is readying herself for the role, she's driving her friends mad by constantly listening to a Russian language CD. She says, "Any spare time I get, I put a Russian CD on. All I need to do is get a Russian accent but I'm fascinated by Russia."

Thanks for that piece of news, xena225. And Sakuya too. Smile I'm starting to get really excited by this. I am so glad they're filming in Russia, that's so cool. I like how they decided to make one of the girls American and one Russian. Great idea.

Heheh i agree.. i love endings that are un-expected. But for me, it doesn't have to be a sad ending, ..just, a realistic one. Nothing like.. tied into a perfect and neat little bow, type of ending Thumb

Mischa's Film "Career" Hits New Low



Poor Mushy!

Fartone has resorted to this????

The former O.C. star is currently in Russia filming a movie with washed-up popstars t.A.T.u.

Several PerezHilton.com readers saw Mushy this past weekend appearing on the Russian video countdown show Vishaya Liga.

Fartons revealed that the movie is about two girls who meet at a t.A.T.u. concert and fall in love.

Sounds like another direct to DVD release!

"Fartone"? Erm. Squint Rolleyes

As for his opinion about the "washed-up popstars" - I'm sure he's not the only US citizen who doesn't know that t.A.T.u. are anything but "washed-up". Or is he referring to the fact that Lena and Yulia look really sparkly and speckless all the time? Hmmm laugh

Thanks for posting, chrysXtal.

I think the fact that Mischa Barton is one of the leads will be good publicity indeed, especially in the US.

Mischa's Film "Career" Hits New Low



Poor Mushy!

Fartone has resorted to this????

The former O.C. star is currently in Russia filming a movie with washed-up popstars t.A.T.u.

Several PerezHilton.com readers saw Mushy this past weekend appearing on the Russian video countdown show Vishaya Liga.

Fartons revealed that the movie is about two girls who meet at a t.A.T.u. concert and fall in love.

Sounds like another direct to DVD release!


Get that Pr Tatu. Grin

But who like cares what perez thinks, this is coming from a guy who looks like this.



Rolleyes

All he does is bash celebrities, except for paris hilton. Devil

I would love for Tatu to join the list of those who he love to hate, its better to be hated and to be talked about then to be loved and not talked about, 200km was a reminisce of this.

An interview with producer Sergey Konov.

Quote:
June, 04

The office of Russian-American movie company RAMKO fitted into soviet-style Mosfilm studio quite organically. Same as RAMKO itself fitted into Hollywood production industry. Having successfully worked on several motion pictures for American market, producer Sergey Konov started to work on the movie based on A.Mitrofanov's novel "TATU COME BACK".

[Image:] http://www.tatu.ru/gimg/1940.jpg

Will the movie inherit the name of the novel?

No, well change it. Draft title is Finding t.A.T.u..

Sergey, how did you get in this "t.A.T.u." story anyway?

Theres nothing mysterious here, all is very simple. On International Moscow Film Festival we held an opening night of one of our movies. There were a lot of people, as always Alexey Mitrofanov was among the guests. He approached me after the movie was shown (we didnt know each other before), said many nice words about it, and we exchanged our business cards. Some days later we met, and he told me about his novel ?atu Come Back and brought the book.
Your first impression?...

Actually, I liked the idea even before I read the manuscript. Youth is always such a ninteresting topic. t.A.T.u.s participation in it is even more interesting. I am not a t.A.T.u. fan. My music taste has been already established Im 50 years old! But I remember very well when I accidentally saw their performance at Eurovision Song Contest - and I liked it. Really, they were great, Im telling you this absolutely sincerely...
Since then I, as well as many other people, understand that this is a unique band with a serious success both in the West and in the East. This fact is enough to get us interested.

Did you read the book?

Sure. And you know Basically, its not about literature actually. I liked the idea. I mean I liked WHAT it is. To tell the truth, I didnt like HOW it is done. Although, HOW is a subjective category

So you didnt like HOW, but still decided to work on the project?

Yes. WHAT it is turned out to be sufficient for me. And HOW well make it ourselves.

Was Mitrofanov upset that you did not quite like the "texture" of the book?

Alexey got everything right. He gave us the rights to change. Ramco signed an agreement stating that we can adapt and film Tatu Come Back.

So you already have the rights?

For a long time now.

It is strange that Alexey Valentinovich agreed with you about adapting so easily. He surely understands that the movie will be done according to American rules and by the American team?

Mitrofanov realized that were making a movie not only for Russia. Our goal is to produce a movie for the world market and make it successful. Thats why we need a high-quality movie at the world market. Which means, we need an American director, Hollywood stars and western writers for the film script. In fact, writing style, script goals are very different in Russian and American cinema

Different in what?

It is a question of drama basics which are neglected by practically all authors of Russian cinema today.

Does the script differ from the novel a lot?

The differences are significant. Were changing the plot of the book quite seriously. Well change characters, and one character will change completely. One of the main characters of the book will be American. The second girl will remain Russian. Well change accents in their relationships: It will be a tandem of antipodes. One of them will be weak and gentle, needing care. The second will be the opposite: purposeful, sharp, almost on the verge of roughness, the leader. And their antagonism will be the concrete of their relationships. They wont make it separately.

Looks like the main characters are almost doubles of Volkova and Katina

Practically - yes. In fact, t.A.T.u. are some kind of role models for our heroines.

Do you, as a producer, have your role models for this movie?

Actually, a long time ago I had an idea that it would be good...

Traditionally, in Russian cinema, especially today, characters do not change the script and in the film. A character stays the same from the beginning up to the end. The bright example - the film "Island" which was boring for many people. It is wrong, it is uninteresting...

to make something similar to Lindsey Andersons film released three decades ago - Oh, lucky man! Great movie. I still watch it with pleasure! This film is very close to our project in structure. The difference is that we have t.A.T.u with their music, and in Andersens movie they have a legendary musician Alan Price.

t.A.T.u. are recording a new album. Are you going to use this material in the film?

Not just "to use": Most songs of the third album will become a movies soundtrack. We have this in our contract with the band. This movie is literally a love story accompanied by t.A.T.u. music. As I got it, the third album will be the beginning of a new stage and new style for t.A.T.u. and this is quite understandable. Yulya and Lena are not the girls, but young women. Not only their appearance changed. Their characters, their style changed as well. It all will be reflected in the music. All demo versions that Ive heard confirm my thoughts. Their manner of performance became more serious and mature. And still, t.A.T.u. kept their ingenuousness and their passion.

Looks like it should be a bloody love story accompanied by t.A.T.u. music

Why bloody?

Well, according to the plot, two underage girls kill the mother of one of them

Yes, its terrible, of course But in this case this is truth that will look like a lie on the screen. Theres no murder in the movie - and this is also the difference between American and Russian cinematography. Russian cinema goers are very cruel. Some of the latest Russian movies prove this. And at the same time we never forget to accuse American cinema in excessive cruelty, violence.

Somebody dies according to the script?

Somebody always must die. Youll see.

What is the audience of Finding t.A.T.u.?

Wed like to make a movie for youth But I think it will be interesting for older generation. The movie is about present. We all live in it. This time - as any other time in general - is unique. And our time is very very rich in contrasts...

Such wild things happen and stay unclear for the whole age and social groups. Many moments can be views as surrealistic. It is important for Finding t.A.T.u.

Yes, really, adult audience doesnt always understand what young people do...

That's why stories about young people always cause big interest! Take classic literature, for example. Pierre Bezukhov of Leo Tolstoys eternal book. Mind you, Pierre was twenty years old!

Therere lots of erotic episodes in the book. How do you plan to show them in the movie?

They will be there. Not as many as in the book, where they are on almost every page. In general, all books characters do is drink, smoke hemp, eat pies in huge quantities (because for some reason therere always pies in a fridge) and have sex. Its too much, of course Well try not to exaggerate. And then, any frank scene can be shot beautifully and elegantly, and the most harmless kiss can be shot in a vulgar way. Again - it all depends on HOW. HOW is art.

It is already known that movie will directed by Roland Joffe. Partly because you already worked with him, right?


Yes, Finding t. A.T.u. will be our second movie with Roland. And its good. We know each other, and a new director is always like a cat in a bag. The director production-wise is very important for producer. We know Joffes manner of working, his tempo, his requirements - and we know the result we get.

So, it is easy to work with Joffe?
Not at all. Roland is very much not easy. His complexity and at the same time one of his main advantages is that he never makes compromises. If we agree on a point in the beginning, it means that it should be that way. Its impossible to change even a tiny detail in the approved script. Its hard for the production. Often we cannot substitute something expensive with something cheap, something complicated with something simple. But on the other hand its good - because the quality we get is also uncompromising.

No compromises at all?!

Compromises are possible at the beginning - for example, in the work on the script. But when we approach the start - no more compromises. This is how it works. In this sense Roland Joffe is a monster. But we are not afraid of him, we work with him.

Some critic characterized Joffes style using a metaphor "asthmatic weight of director's breath". Do you agree?

I dont think so. Roland - is very serious director, the clear head, very erudite. And hes a classic of a modern cinema for a long time already. By the way, his sincere interest in our history became a nice surprise. In fact, he also has a 16-year-old daughter, so problems of youth are close to him. And when I told him my ideas about the Andersons movie "Oh, lucky man!", he was very excited about such parallel. It turned out that this is one of his favorite pictures too.

What are the shooting locations?

The main part - in Moscow. About one week well spend in Los Angeles.

Did you already have time to get acquainted with Lena and Julia?

Yes, I did. And opened many things for myself.

Your first impression?

First I was amazed by Lenas English. She really has a fluent English, and with very good pronunciation. But her manner of talking impressed me even more Shes really a very delicate young woman. And it will be very difficult to shoot her!...

Its weird: If you take a look t.A.T.u. photo shoots, Lena looks quite simple compared very sexy Volkova. In real life, though, shes not simple at all. Lena just radiates such a pleasant, kind aura. We need to learn to shoot her correctly, to learn to show Volkovas and Katinas polarity in the movie.

And what about Yulia?

Yulia loves camera very much. And camera loves Julia very much. Volkova is very photogenic. And in general, Julia and Lena are both very nice in person - and very professional, which is especially good. And their popularity tells about their professionalism, of course.

Will it be difficult to work with such stars?

You know, if there is an arrangement that we are one team, I already consider them my team, my people. No alternative exist. And my people they are the best. Really. Its a certain corporate thing, so to speak... Its like this with t.A.T.u.. For me, first of all they are my team, not stars. I heard a lot about Julia and Lena. I heard, that Lena likes to read, that Julia reads only a menu in the restaurants, some other things I suspected that they are antipodes. But I did not expect that they are THAT different.

This interview with Sergey Konov is really most amazing, thanks for posting, Sakuya! :)

I have to say, right now it really looks like this film will be made by very interesting and very creative people, people with a real vision, and people with the capability to turn a script into a great movie. Thumb

I really like what he said about Lena and Yulia, the way he describes them, their differences, their friendliness + professionalism, his respect shining through. It's always interesting to read what "new" people have to say about them, and his comments were quite interesting indeed. And we learned more things about the movie. And the soundtrack. "A love story accompanied by t.A.T.u. music". Cool :thumbsup:

Great interview!
