From an interview in Cuba with Tornatore last year:

Quote
Amaury Perez: The other day at the Riviera movie theatre, when we met, I asked you for your project Leningrad. There has been speculation in the Spanish press that you have not started to shoot it because you are waiting for Nicole Kidman. Is it true?

Giuseppe Tornatore: I have worked and I'm still working on a script that started in 2004. I have never stated that I had thought of Nicole Kidman, she was the one who talked to the journalists. The film has not been done for other reasons. At that time (2004), I had thought of her and Nicole was very excited about the project. In the future, perhaps I do it with Nicole, or just another actress.

So if the script is dated 2004, at least now we know for sure that it has nothing to do with the movie Leone wanted to shoot...

That would be hard as Leone never actually wrote a script for his project. If Tornatore's project's intended as an homage then that's something else.

Apparently Avi Lerner is putting up all the money: http://www.avmagazine.it/news/cinema/giuseppe-tornatore-via-libera-al-nuovo-film_6097.html

It's a shame because I thought he was going to do it right after Baaria, but it seems he is working on a project for a Burmese nobel prize winner entitled "The Lady"

Seems like Luc Besson ended up as the one making the Aung San Suu Kyi bipoic:

Seems like we're gonna have to wait a little longer for Leningrad. This Tornatore oeuvre is coming first:

http://thefilmstage.com/news/geoffrey-rush-and-jim-sturgess-take-the-best-offer-from-cinema-paradiso-director-ennio-morricone-doing-score/

IMDB lists it as "filming".

So long as Tornatore eventually makes Leningrad, I'm happy - news of another Tornatore/Morricone combo is always music to my ears  Smiley

I wonder how long it would've been if Leone did make it, probably 5+ hours, and maybe this time he would've divided it into two movies.

Interview with Tornatore:

http://video.ilsole24ore.com/TMNews/2013/20130312_video_18335413/00010336-tornatore-si-confessa-e-rivela-non-so-se-leningrad-si-far.php

I don't speak Italian, but the transcription of the last couple of sentences found underneath the video is the following:

Quote
Il suo prossimo film doveva essere "Leningrad", sulla battaglia di Leningrado, che era rimasto il sogno incompiuto di Sergio Leone."E' un progetto al quale lavoro da molti anni ma non Ŕ sicuro che si farÓ, anzi, penso che siano pi¨ numerose le probabilitÓ che non si faccia che quelle che si faccia".

I believe this roughly translates to:

Quote
His next film was supposed to be Leningrad about the battle of Leningrad that had been the unfulfilled dream of Sergio Leone. "It's a project on which I have worked for many years but it's not certain that it will happen, indeed I think it more likely that it won't happen than it will happen".

Just to confirm that the translation is correct....

Woo hoo.

Sounds like Tornatore is going to have a decent shot at getting the international recognition he has been cruelly denied since 1989.
