Variety confirms that Sherilyn Fenn will star in the indie biopic about Rudolph Valentino.
Fenn has been tapped to portray silent film star Alla Nazimova in the feature titled Silent Life.
The biopic about silent-era film star Rudolph Valentino will be helmed by Vladislav Kozlov, who will also star as Valentino himself. Also starring are Isabella Rossellini as Valentino’s mother, Franco Nero as Valentino’s spirit, and Terry Moore as the mourning “Lady in Black.” Paul Rodriguez, Dalton Cyr, Paul Louis Harrell, and Ksenia Jarova round up the cast.
Valentino died unexpectedly in 1926. The biopic follows a group of journalists and their mysterious encounter with a woman clad in all black at Valentino’s annual memorial service. The production will film on location, including Valentino’s grave at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery as well as Miceli’s Restaurant in Hollywood, and the private Rudolph Valentino museum in North Hollywood.
Kozlov is also producing with Natalia Dar via their Dreamer Pictures banner.
