Lawrence French and Bogdanovich

Lawrence French has posted a recent interview with Peter Bogdanovich over at Wellesnet. The big topic of discussion is Welles's unfinished film The Other Side of the Wind, which I have mentioned before. As with other Welles fans, I've been eagerly anticipating any news of Showtime's efforts in finishing the film. Bogdanovich reiterates his previous statements that it will take about a year to complete once he's given the final go-ahead from Showtime and the other backers. The interview itself is very enlightening, and Wellesnet has included several great pictures and a snippet of the script that are well worth a look.

In other Welles news, I finished volume 2 of Simon Callow's Welles biography. The review should be coming shortly.
