    Hello, I am interested in working for this film and I would love to ask you whether or not this film will be carried out after all. I found no information on its filming on imdb.com or any trailer on youtube. Apart from that I took a look in the Fountain of life productions site and where Harry Winer is mentioned as the director, while in the greek co producer website is written that Raul Ruiz will be directing it. If you have any more information on the subject I would appreciate any update.
