Oscar Winner Marleen Gorris to Direct Major Studio Picture
Dutch filmmaker Marleen Gorris, who won the foreign language Oscar in 1996 for directing Antonia's Line, has will direct her first major studio picture. 20th Century Fox has contracted with her to direct Come West With Me, a movie based on the play Abundance by Beth Henley. The nineteenth-century drama deals with the story of two women who journey west as mail-order brides. Gorris has most recently completed her English-language directing debut with the bigscreen version of Virginia Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway.
