Hollywood will fulfill Gary Oldman's dream

Image Four years ago, in a scandalous interview with Playboy, Briton Gary Oldman complained about the state of affairs in Hollywood and admitted that he could not find a buyer for the script of the film about the creator of the chronophotography Edward Muybridge. The victory at the March Oscar ceremony brought the actor not only the long-awaited recognition of the professional community, but also the opportunity to finally fulfill his old dream. As it became known to the publication Deadline, the film project about the famous compatriot Oldman undertook to finance the California studio Tooley Entertainment.

The painting will be named "Flying Horse" in honor of the popular series of photographs of Muybridge. Worldwide fame was brought to Edward by phased photography of the running of horses, which allowed for the first time to demonstrate movement in dynamics and created the basis for the invention of cinema.


Muybridge's personal life will also play an important role in the plot of the film. In 1860, Edward suffered a serious head injury, after which he became unnecessarily hot-tempered and irritable. A few years later, the Englishman suspected that his wife was having an affair with theater critic Harry Larkins. Muybridge tracked down his opponent and killed him with a pistol shot. They wanted to build a line of defense on recognizing Edward as mentally ill, but in the end the lawyers did not have to play this card, since the jury acquitted the photographer and found Larkins' death a murder under extenuating circumstances.

Oldman plans to work on both sides of the camera: he independently implements his script, and at the same time will play one of the main roles in the film. "Flying Horse" will be the second directorial project in the British career. Gary made his directorial debut in 1997 with the drama Don't Swallow, which was warmly received by the audience and won the title of Best British Film at the 51st BAFTA Awards.


The biographical drama will be produced by Academy Award-nominated Douglas Urbanski (Dark Hours) and Tooley Entertainment Studio Head Tucker Tooley (Areas of Darkness).
