Shekhar Kapur to Direct for “New York, I Love You”March 27, 2008
After the success of the film, Paris, je t’aime, which brought together acclaimed filmmakers to create short films in homage to the City of Lights, the love is now spreading to New York. With New York, I Love You, 12 filmmakers will direct shorts illustrating the universal theme of encountering love within the five boroughs of New York City. Sadly, the late Anthony Minghella planned on directing a segment. His friend and one of Virgin Comics’ Chief Visionaries Shekhar Kapur will be helming the segment.
As Shekhar stated on his blog, “Two days before Anthony Minghella went in for an operation on a tumor they had just discovered, Anthony called me to see if I would direct a short he had written. I will direct the film now—with Anthony in my heart and in presence of his soul.” Read the entire blog entry here.
