lone scherfig signs on to direct music and silence

AN EDUCATION director Lone Scherfig has signed on to direct MUSIC AND SILENCE, an adaptation of Rose Tremain's historical novel.

Screenwriter Martin Sherman (MRS HENDERSON PRESENTS) has been hired to adapt the material, which centers on a king fighting to save his marriage and kingdom, while a couple of servants fall in love only to be separated when the king’s wife is forced to leave court.

BBC Films are co-producing and co-financing the project, which is set to shoot early next year.

Christine Langan of BBC Films said, “This is a unique project...Rose’s book is symphonic in it’s range of emotions — sexy, funny and passionate. It’s a treat to be working again with the exquisitely talented Lone Scherfig and Martin Sherman.”

Schefig's latest directorial effort, the romance-drama ONE DAY, will be released by Focus Features on August 19.
